The Abuja division of the Court of Appeal has restrained the All Progressive Congress (APC) from executing the judgement of an Abuja high court which ordered the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the ruling party.
Abubakar Yahaya, head of the three man panel of justices, gave the order a stay of execution on Monday pending the determination of an application filed by Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole, in his appeal, had asked the court to set aside the suspension order.
Mr. Wole Olanipekun, counsel to Oshiomhole, had asked the court to grant a motion ex parte staying the order of the lower court, arguing that “time is of essence.
An Abuja high court had on March 4 ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole pending the determination of a suit filed by one Oluwale Afolabi.
Afolabi challenged the continuous stay of Oshiomhole in office despite his suspension by the Edo chapter of the APC.
