The Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), has threatened to expel the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from its membership, should they not stop overheating the political space, ahead of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal judgement.

The state chapter chairman of IPAC, Hon. Dogara Abubakar, made the threat in a statement, Tuesday, in Jos.

Two separate panels of the National and State Houses of Assembly, had given thier verdicts  in favours of the PDP, and others in favour of LP and APC, which verdicts sparked protests and accusations against the judges by the parties and some of their supporters.

The APC also responded to the PDP and other protesters against the judges.

But the state chapter of IPAC, frowned at the entire scenario.

“The duo must call their members and supporters to order, Plateau will not fall because of any individual or group’s ambition. 

“Political parties must learn to play the game by the rules. Any party that is afraid of losing in an election or at the tribunal and or court of appeal shouldn’t have contested in the elections,” IPAC said.

It further cautioned that it, “will not hesitate to withdraw the membership of any political party found involved in sponsoring unlawful gatherings and unguided statements by so called data boys.”

The Inter Party Advisory Council, said the Plateau state government and other relevant authorities were encouraged to pay serious attention on the political and security situation in the state. 

“We call on parents, guardians, religious leaders, traditional institutions, youths and women groups in the state to remind their children, members and followers on the need for a peaceful Plateau,” it urged
