APC disassociates self from third term requests for Buhari

402

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it has no links with a suit before the Federal High Court in Ebonyi seeking amendment of the constitution to allow President Muhammadu Buhari get a third term in office.

Charles Enya, a member of the party who served as organising secretary to Buhari during the 2019 general election, had filed the suit before the court.

He described the two-term tenure limit for presidents and governors as “discriminatory” asking the court to amend that section of the constitution to allow such officeholders to contest a third term.

Reacting in a statement, spokesman of the ruling party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said as a “progressive party”, APC does not have space for “anti-democratic forces and charlatans”.

He added that efforts are being made to verify the membership status of Enya, adding that if he is a member of the party, steps would be taken to expel him.

Issa-Onilu also noted that there is a possibility that Enya is being sponsored by the “desperate and misguided opposition”, vowing that all legal means would be used to “thwart his devilish efforts to create chaos in our country”.
