The Court of Appeal in Abuja has fixed Monday, March 16, to hear the appeal by the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole challenging his suspension.
An FCT High Court, in an interlocutory ruling, last week Wednesday ordered Oshiomhole to stop parading himself as the party’s national chairman.
But the former Edo state governor filed an appeal against the suspension order at the Court of Appeal.
According to The Nation, the appellate court’s Registry communicated the hearing date to parties via hearing notices sent to them earlier this week.
Oshiomhole raised four grounds on which he is challenging the ruling by the high court.
In the appeal filed by his counsel, Damian Dodo (SAN), he contended that the trial court erred in law when it decided that he, in the performance of his duties as APC National Chairman, would interfere in the court action filed against him by the aggrieved members.
He further faulted the suspension order against him on the grounds that the trial court determined the motion for interlocutory injunction without recourse to triable issues which ought to have been discerned from pleadings.
Oshiomhole sought an order of the appellate court to set aside the ruling of the trial court.
Respondents in the appeal are: APC National Vice Chairman (Northeast) Mustapha Saliu, Edo State APC Chairman, Honourable Anselm Ojezua, Alhaji Sani Gomna, Mr Oshawo Stephen, Mr. Fani Wabulari and Mr. Princewill Ejogharado.
Others are the Inspector General of Police and the State Security Service.
