The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has directed all its members who instituted cases against the party in various courts to withdraw them.
The party said members who fail to do so will face sanctions.
This decision was made known by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Prince Diran Odeyemi, in a press statement on Thursday.
PDP said the party considered myriad of cases instituted against it by members as inimical to the string of successes it had achieved in the last few years.
Odeyemi said any member of the party with a genuine interest in the party must not allow themselves to be used by elements that wanted to slow down its progress through needless litigations.
He said, We consider it inimical to our progress as a vibrant political party, the myriad of cases instituted against PDP by members who are expected to be part of the concerted efforts towards being the ruling party in Nigeria.
We cant continue to struggle under the yoke of needless litigations when we intend to return to power both at federal level and in other states that are out of control of PDP at the moment.
We are monitoring situations in Osun, Ekiti, Oyo, Lagos and other states across the country regarding court matters instituted by our members.”
The party assured aggrieved party members that they would get justice by using the partys internal mechanism and not through the court.
It warned that any member that failed to comply with the directive would be sanctioned.
