APC to expel member who filed third term suit for Buhari
The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said it would expel its member, Charles Enya, who filed a suit seeking a third term for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The plaintiff, in the suit filed by at the Federal High Court in Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, is praying for an order to amend the 1999 Constitution to allow the President to run for a third term in office.
The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, described the suit as anti-democratic.
The party: “APC is, however, by this statement sending a strong signal to such other busybodies like Charles Enya who may be contemplating testing the resolve of our government on our mission to work for the best for our country to be ready to face the law.
“We would follow this new enemy of our country, who is most likely being sponsored by the desperate and misguided opposition, every step of the way, using all legal means to thwart his devilish efforts to create chaos in our country.
“As a party, we would not take kindly to anyone or group causing an unnecessary distraction for this administration through anti-democratic actions.
“As a country, we are several years behind where we ought to be. President Buhari-led administration is focused on the onerous responsibility of delivering good governance.
“We have tried to find out the status of this character claiming to be a member of our party.
“If he turns out to be our member, we would ensure the party organ that has the responsibility to act on this matter promptly commences the process of expelling him.
“We are a progressive party and we do not have space for anti-democratic forces and charlatans.”
