A Federal High Court in Abuja, has renewed the order empowering Chief Victor Giadom to Act as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for two weeks, Page 36 learnt on Thursday.
The court also empowered Comrade Mustapha Salihu, the APC National Vice Chairman (North-East), to act as the National Secretary.
With this, it is becoming clearer that the APC may not be able to field any Candidate in the September 19, Governorship election in Edo State, as predicted by Page 36 earlier.
Chief Victor Giadom had said yesterday, that he was the authentic Acting National Chairman of the APC, following a ruling of the Federal Capital Teritory, FCT, High Court.
Giadom who is the party’s Deputy National Secretary, stated that he is the highest ranking Official, following the ruling of the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, which upheld Oshiomhole’s suspension and declared all his actions since his suspension, null and void.
The APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Isa-Onilu, had announced ailing Senator Abiola Ajimobi as the Acting National Chairman, being the Deputy National Chairman (South).
However, Giadom who spoke through his Counsel, Wole Afolabi, said that consequent upon an order of the FCT High Court issued on March 16, 2020, by Hon. Justice S. U. Bature in Suit No. FCT/HC/M/6447/202, “Chief Victor Giadom is to act as the National Chairman”.
