Adams Oshiomhole, former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says he has directed his lawyers to withdraw the suit challenging his suspension as the party’s chairman.

CityNews Nigeria reports that the former Edo state governor made this known in a statement on Monday.

Oshiomhole said he’s proud of what the party’s national working committee (NWC) accomplished under his leadership.

He disclosed that he won’t return as the party’s chairman even if the court upturned his suspension, noting that that journey of his political life has come to an end.

“I instructed my lawyers to withdraw the suits challenging my purported suspension from office by the proxies of those bent on removing me as chairman,” the statement read.

“It is, therefore, the height of mischief to insinuate, as it is being done in some quarters, that I would publicly accept the decision and later surreptitiously seek to contest it in court.

“That chapter of my political life is closed. Even if another NEC decision or a court order reverses the dissolution, with utmost humility I will decline to return as APC chairman.

“I am proud of the accomplishments of the NWC under my leadership and I am grateful to the principled 18 members who worked as a team committed to the cause of the party. Above all, I bear no grudges against any one for the manner of my removal.”

Oshiomhole thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for supporting his administration as APC chairman.
