Amid present crisis rocking the ruling party All Progressive Congress (APC), national chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has vowed to give a tough fight against those who he termed enemies within, Leadership reports.
Oshiomhole has found himself in the face of storms after falling down the pecking order with some top hierarchy members of the ruling party.
The former Edo governor was told to cease from further calling himself the national chairman of APC pending the determination of the suit filed before the court seeking his removal.
But in another separate judgement delivered in Kano on Thursday, March 5, the Federal High Court sitting in Kano dismissed the verdict which suspended Oshiomhole as party chair.
The court pronouncement, which was delivered by Justice A Lewis-Allagoa in Kanos state, directed all the parties in the suit to maintain status-quo.
While reacting to the two judgements in Abuja on Thursday, the former Edo governor said attempts to bring him down by some disgruntled politicians will end in futility.
Oshiomhole noted that he is not the best party chairman in the world but has been giving his sweat and blood to give the ruling party an effective leadership.
He also claimed he is not perturbed by the hues and cry of those who want to bring him down but rather concentrate on good legacies he will be remembered for after leaving the position.
“Whatever you do, those who want to fight you will fight you but I know that my tenure will be defined by God and not man.
“I worry more about what I will be remembered for when I was chairman rather than how long I was chairman.
“He who God stands with no man born of a woman can bring him down,” Oshiomole said.
He blamed his recent travails on some chieftains of the party outside his state. Oshiomhole spoke to State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on the evening of Thursday, March 5, at the Presidential Villa, hours after a Federal High Court in Kano gave a restraining order in his favour.
