Plans Coming From an All Progressive Congress member in a suit seeking
an amendment of the constitution to allow president Mohammadu Buhari run for a
third time in office has been disclaimed by the All Progressive congress
The ruling party said the suit filed by a “self-proclaimed”
member of the party, Charles Enya, was in bad taste, describing him as a
busybody and an “enemy” that might have been sponsored by the opposition.

The APC in a statement on Thursday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, threatened a legal action against Enya and serious
disciplinary action, if truly he was a member of the party.
In the suit filed at the Federal High Court in Abakaliki, Ebonyi
State, Enya had prayed that the clauses restricting the President from seeking
another term be removed from the constitution
He asked the court to order the National Assembly and the
Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, to remove the
constitutional clauses stopping Buhari from getting a third term.
The statement said, “The party had initially chosen to ignore
him, however, it has become important to send a clear message to him and such
other agent provocateurs.
“At the last National
Executive Committee meeting of the party, President Buhari didn’t mince words
and he is not the type that talks tongue in cheek. He pointedly said he would
abide by the constitution and uphold the oath of office he took, swearing by the
holy book he believes in. This, he said, was beside his advanced age which made
such an idea beyond his contemplation.”
The APC said it was ready to send a strong signal to enemies of
the country like Enya, who might be testing the resolve of the government on
its mission to work for the best of the country.
The statement added, “The party 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
unnecessary distraction for this administration through anti-democratic
actions. As a country, we are several years behind where we ought to be.
“The President Buhari-led administration is focused on the
onerous responsibility of delivering good governance. We are focused on
revamping our moribund infrastructure, growing the economy, fighting
corruption, creating the right environment for our teeming youths to deploy
their creative energies, and providing adequate security for all of our people.
 “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’s organ that has the responsibility to act on this
matter promptly commence the process of expelling him. We are a progressive
party and we do not have space for anti-democratic forces and charlatans.”
