Through its National Working Committee (NWC), the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday directed its members to stop all cases they filed in the name of the party.

They were given seven days to discontinue or withdraw such pending litigations, failing which the party threatened to sanction erring members.

The decision was reached at the 146th meeting of the ruling party’s highest administrative organ in Abuja, a statement by the National Secretary, Senator Ajibola, Basiru, confirmed yesterday.

According to the statement, the party’s NWC deliberated and resolved at its 146th meeting held on Wednesday as follows:

“That all ongoing cases filed in the name of the party or associated with matters concerning the Party and involving party members must be discontinued and withdrawn from the courts within the next seven days.

 “That failure to comply with this resolution will result in disciplinary action being taken against any member responsible for such suits, including immediate suspension and ultimately expulsion from the party.”

The committee specifically mentioned the party’s local chapter in Benue State, directing members to immediately adhere to the directive.

It stressed that the party will not compromise the unity and integrity of the party.

“It is crucial that all members of the APC Benue State Chapter adhere to this directive promptly. The unity and integrity of our Party must be upheld, and resolving legal matters internally is paramount to maintaining the cohesion and focus of the APC”, Basiru, a senior advocate, said.
