President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday reiterated that any unhappy member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has right to sue the party.
Buhari made this known in the wake of the recent threats by the National Working Committee of the party to punish members who took the party to court.
“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,” Buhari said, according to a statement issued by his media aide Femi Adesina.
”The court should always be the last resort for the dissatisfied. For the party to outlaw the court process is not acceptable to me.”
The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling party had last week threatened to punish members across the country who had dragged the party to court over various issues.
