- Some former NWC members of the APC might be sacked
- The director-general of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Salihu Lukeman, said that the aggrieved members risk this fate if they go to court against the dissolution of the committee
- Lukeman called on the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee not to fail to punish such APC members
Salihu Lukeman, the director-general of the Progressive Governors’ Forum has called on the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee take sack all former members of the APC's national working committee if they take their grievances to court.
Lukeman said that those who are at odds with the dissolution of the NWC are working against the party because the new caretaker committee was inaugurated to deal with the APC's current crises, Vanguard reports.
He said that those who oppose this move recommended by President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Executive Council by taking court actions should be severely punished.
The forum's boss in a statement on Friday, June 26, said: “Based on that those members of the dissolved NWC who attempt to institute legal actions against the decisions of NEC should be appropriately sanctioned.”
He added that Governor Buni should invoke article 21 of the ruling party's constitution which supports disciplinary actions against erring members.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a group, Abuja Governance Roundtable (AGR), had cautioned the former chairman of the APC Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his supporters to stop disobeying President Buhari.
The group was reacting to reports that the sacked NWC of the APC headed by Oshiomhole was heading to court over the pronunciation of President Buhari, stressing that their actions were tantamount to treason.
President Buhari had suggested that the NWC be disbanded, a position adopted by the National Executive Committee.
According to the convener of the group, Dr Ebiowei Freeman, in a statement sent to journalists on Friday, June 26, he said anyone who attempts to go against a president in a presidential system of government was liable to face treasonable charges.
President Buhari had also warned all members of the ruling party to discontinue all forms of litigations and embrace peace.
Furthermore, confirmed reports indicate that Mr Igo Aguma of the Rivers chapter of the party may have gone to court summoning some top members of the party like Senator Andrew Uchendu and Hon. Sekonte Davies for alleged contempt of court.
