The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has suspended hearing of the appeal by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole against the judgment of an Abuja high court suspending him as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The court had scheduled Monday to hear the matter but a panel of three justices led by Justice Stephen Adah sat to hear other cases.

The panel later rose, with a promise that another panel would be reconstituted to hear Oshiomole’s appeal.

A clerk of the court later announced that the panel would not hear Oshiomhole’s appeal on Monday and that a new date would be communicated to the parties in the matter.

Danlami Senchi, a judge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Abuja had on March 4 ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole as National Chairman pending the determination of a suit filed by one Oluwale Afolabi.

The Judge had stated that it was wrong of the APC to have kept Oshiomhole as chairman after his suspension by the Edo State chapter of the party.

But OshiOmhole approached the Court of Appeal seeking a stay of execution of the judgement.
