Barely 24 hours Hon. Justice Senchi Z. Danlami of FCT high court, suspended the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, another Court in Kano Thursday made a reverse ruling, halting the earlier suspension.
At its sitting on Thursday, Lewis Allagoa, a judge, asked parties involved to “maintain the status quo ante bellum (the situation before the current state)” pending the court’s final decision.
The judge gave the ruling following an application by one Aliyu Rabiu praying the court to stop the APC and INEC from effecting Oshiomhole’s suspension.
The application specifically asked the court to stop those involved in the matter from giving effect to the resolution of the APC helmsman’s ward to suspend him in 2019.
Apart from the APC and police, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Department of State Services (DSS) were joined as defendants in the suit.
While the interim order does not relate to Oshiomhole’s suspension by a federal high court in Abuja on Wednesday, it rubs off on it given that the court’s judgement was based on Oshiomhole’s suspension by his ward.
