Oshiomhole: Police seal APC Secretariat as party pledges to obey court order ~ Truth Reporters

The National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress APC was Wednesday sealed by the police following a ruling by an FCT Court suspending Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman of the party.

The party disclosed of its resolve to respect Wednesday’s order of the court which suspended its National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Acting National Secretary of the party, Mr Victor Giadom disclosed this at a news conference Wednesday evening at the national secretariat of the party.

This came as there was heavy security presence at the national secretariat. Soon after the court judgment there was heavy police presence at Blantyre street, where the national secretariat is located.

The policemen had a hard time dismissing a group of protesters who had besieged the area to protest against Oshiomhole.

The security unit of the party had at about 6:55pm asked journalists to evacuate the premises, saying the secretariat was going to be locked until 10am on Thursday.

The police detachment at the secretariat had consequently taken over the security of the area.

While speaking with journalists, Giadom said; “As a party we are aware of the injunction. As a law abiding party we will respect all lawful court orders.

"Very soon, the National Working Committee will meet and you will hear further from the party.

"I am trying to say that the All Progressives Congress will respect all lawful court orders. We will soon do that”.

When asked if the national chairman is on suspension? Giadom said there is a court injunction and it is binding on us as a party to respect all the court injunction.

Giadom further said the National Working Committee of the party will meet very soon to decide on the court ruling.
