The All Progressives Congress (APC) has named Abiola Ajimobi, former governor of Oyo state, as its acting national chairman after the Appeal Court upheld the suspension of controversial chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
This was disclosed on Tuesday in a statement by Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC national publicity secretary.
The statement read partly, “Guided by advice from the Party’s legal department in line with the provisions of Section 14.2. (iii) of the Party’s constitution, the Deputy National Chairman (South), Sen. Abiola Ajimobi will serve as the Party’s Acting National Chairman.
“According to Section 14.2. (iii),of the APC constitution, the Deputy National Chairman, North/South “Shall act as the National Chairman in the absence of the National Chairman from his zone.”
The appeal court in Abuja had earlier on Tuesday affirmed the suspension of Oshiomhole by a federal capital territory (FCT) high court.
There are reports however that Ajimobi is battling coronavirus.
