The appeal court has taken a decision on the application filed by Adams Oshiomhole challenging his suspension by a federal capital territory (FCT) high court as  the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Hearing of the appeal which was scheduled for Monday has now been suspended as the presiding judges disclosed that the case would now be assigned to new judges.

Oshiomhole, his supporters and team of lawyers thronged to the court before 9 am awaiting the panel.

Stephen Adah, who led the panel to preside over another case, said another panel would be constituted to hear Oshiomhole’s appeal.

But a clerk of the court later announced that the panel would not hear the appeal of the national chairman 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 on March 4, ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole as national chairman pending the determination of a suit filed by one Oluwale Afolabi.

Senchi said it was wrong of the APC to have kept Oshiomhole as chairman after he was suspended by the Edo state chapter of the party.

But Oshimhole approached the court of appeal seeking a stay of execution of the judgement.

The APC scheduled its national executive council (NEC) meeting for Tuesday
