The All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced itself from a suit seeking amendment of the constitution to allow President Muhammadu Buhari get another term in office.
Charles Enya, a member of the party in Ebonyi, had filed the suit before a federal high court in Abakiliki, the state capital.
Enya, who served as organising secretary to Buhari during the 2019 general election, described the two-term tenure limit for presidents and governors as “discriminatory.”
But in a statement, Lanre Issa-Onilu, spokesman of the ruling party, said as a “progressive party”, APC does not have space for “anti-democratic forces and charlatans”.
The party also said efforts were 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
