The ruling All Progressives Congress on Thursday ordered aggrieved party members and proxies in Benue State who have individually gone to court over the leadership crisis in the state to withdraw their cases or risk facing disciplinary action.

The warning is coming on the heel of an alleged cold war between the camp of the state governor, Hyacinth Alia; and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume.

The face-off between the two political leaders was said to have torn the party apart in the state.

Reacting to the feud via a statement on Thursday, the ruling APC through its National Secretary, Senator Ajibola Basiru, ordered all warring members to withdraw their court cases..

Basiru, who stated that the decision was taken at the 146th meeting of the National Working Committee, warned that there would be dire consequences for anyone who flout the directive.

The statement read, “At its 146th meeting held on March 20th, 2024, the National Working Committee of our great party deliberated and resolved as follows: That all ongoing cases filed in the name of the party or associated with matters concerning the party and involving party members must be discontinued and withdrawn from the courts within the next seven days.

“That failure to comply with this resolution will result in disciplinary action being taken against any member responsible for such suits, including immediate suspension and ultimately expulsion from the party.

“That it is crucial that all members of the APC, Benue State chapter adhere to this directive promptly. The unity and integrity of our party must be upheld, and resolving legal matters internally is paramount to maintaining the cohesion and focus of the APC.”
