Appeal court fails to hear Oshiomhole’s case against suspension

Adams Oshiomhole

The Court of Appeal on Monday failed to hear the case of the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, against his suspension by a lower court.

Parties in the appeal had received a notice of hearing last week.

But a panel of three justices led by Justice Stephen Adah sat to hear other cases on Monday.

The panel later rose with a promise that another panel would be reconstituted to hear Oshiomhole’s appeal.

The court’s clerk then announced that the court had decided to hear Oshiomhole’s appeal on a later date to be communicated to parties.

As he exited the courtroom, Oshiomhole told journalists that he would await the court’s decision.

“…This is not something they have control over. We have approached the court and the court has said we should wait and we have to wait,” he said.
