A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national working committee, Salihu Mohammed Lukman, explained why he kicked against the endorsement of former Kano Stat governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, as the party’s next national chairman.
Lukeman, who is APC’s National Vice Chairman (North West), made known his position in the explanatory note that accompanied his resignation from the party’s NWC on Thursday.
“Since the news of my resignation from APC NWC broke out, I have received so many queries and responses, all expressing disappointment in one way or the other. My common explanation is that I am just tired having to remain in the fighting mode, campaigning for the reform of the APC.
“First, it was against the leadership of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who was my boss and in many respect my mentor for more than sixteen years. Not long after we thought the exit of Comrade Oshiomhole and the whole NWC under his leadership would provide the opportunity to reform the APC and return it to its founding vision of becoming a progressive party, did we come to the sad realisation that we had to wage another bitter struggle to get the Caretaker Committee led by His Excellency Mai Mala to organise a National Convention to produce a new leadership.
