The Federal High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti has warned the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) , Com. Adams Oshiomhole against taking actions that could be subjudice on the appointment of Senator Abiola Ajimobi as the National Deputy Chairman(South) of the party.
The Court presided over by Justice U. N. Agoumoh , said it would be contemptuous for anyone to be appointed into the position by APC National Working Committee until the case filed by an aspirant, Mr. Michael Akinleye contesting Ajimobi’s proposed nomination, is determined.
The suit with registration number FHC/AD/CS/8/2020 was filed against the NWC to halt Ajimobi’s appointment on the premise that the position had been micro-zoned to Ekiti.
Joined in the suit are: APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole(1st respondent), National Working Committee(2nd) , National Vice Chairman, South West(3rd) , APC South West Zonal Caucus(4th), Ekiti State Chairman of APC(5th) , Ekiti State Caucus of APC(6th), All Progressives Congress (7th) and Senator Abiola Ajimobi(8th).
The seat became vacant following the appointment of Oti ba Niyi Adebayo as a Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, which brought the feeling by Ekiti APC that Senator Gbenga Aluko should be allowed to fill the vacancy in respect of the party’s micro-zoning, rather than moving it to Oyo State.
