A previous Director-General of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), Dr. Salihu Lukman has declared that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi, Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State, are dealing with the Chairman of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Mai Mala Buni to weaken the March 26 national convention of the celebration.
Lukman in a statement issued Friday stated whether APC would produce both celebration leaders and prospects for the 2023 elections, who can justify the trust invested in them, depends on how all the existing leadership difficulties dealing with the party are solved.
Lukman worried that anyone who loves Buni should be more concerned about securing his honour as a politician by guaranteeing that he does not end up being a disappointment who stands opposed to the majority choices of party leaders and members.
He kept in mind that if Buni shares the vision of all the founding leaders of the celebration of making the APC genuinely democratic and progressive, it is expected that he would want to make every personal sacrifice to show his assistance for the choices of the celebration
Lukman said that was the legacy shown by Chief Bisi Akande, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, Chief Tony Momoh of blessed memory, Chief John Oyegun and Adams Oshiomhole
His words: “There are known partners of His Excellency Mai Mala who have colluded with him to make sure that all attempts to organise the APC National Convention are obstructed.
“Three Governors who are known and need to also be hired to represent their functions in undermining decisions to arrange the APC National Convention are His Excellency Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, His Excellency Hope Uzodinma of Imo State and His Excellency Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State.
“There are other party leaders, including Sen Uzo Kalu who have actively supported His Excellency Mai Mala to weaken the choice to arrange the National Convention of the celebration.”
Lukman stressed that the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting arranged for March 17 should start procedures of a disciplinary hearing in line with provisions of the APC Constitution to sanction all these leaders if condemned.
