Aggrived APC members can go to court- Buhari

By Adeshina Michael
President Buhari, has declared aggrieved APC members have the right to seek legal redress if they are not satisfied with the party policies.

The All Progressive Congress (APC), has earlier threatened to punish members who had sue the party tp court in a decision ascribed to the National Working Committee (NWC).
The statement states : “The Party intends to activate constitutional provisions to penalize such members as their action is capable of undermining the Party and hurting the Party’s interest.
“We hereby strongly advise such members to withdraw all court cases while approaching the appropriate party organs with a view to resolving any outstanding disputes. In addition to this, aggrieved members are urged to take full advantage of the reconciliation committees the party has put in place.
“APC members should understand that as a progressive party that operates on the principle of change, it is not a matter of choice to keep to the rules.”  
However in a statement by President Buhari Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President said: “We can’t deliberately deny people of their rights. We agreed that party primaries should be conducted either through direct, indirect or consensus methods, and if anyone feels unjustly treated in the process, such a person can go to court.
“The court should always be the last resort for the dissatisfied. For the party to outlaw the court process is not acceptable to me.”
