Director-General of Progressive Governors Forum, Mr Salihu Lukman, has launched an attack on National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, and other leaders, who he accused of failing to discharge their responsibilities.
In a letter titled “APC: Appeal for Reconciliation,” dated August 6, he questioned the capacity of the former labour leader to lead the ruling party.
He cited the woeful outing of the party in last February and March elections in some states, the suspension of some key members, and possibility of defeat in the coming elections in some states.
“My distant observation is that there is hardly any difference between your approach in managing the party and the way Mr John Odigie-Oyegun had managed it during his tenure. Instead, things have really got worse and painfully, it would appear, you are in denial of this reality.”
A member of APC National Working Committee (NWC), said the national leadership of the party will not make any official statement on the letter since it is a personal one addressed to the national chairman.
“It will be unfair demanding for any reaction from the national leadership on a personal letter written to our national chairman. The best person to react should be himself or his CPS,” he quipped.
However, efforts, which included telephone calls and text messages to get reaction of Oshiomhole or his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Simon Ebegbulem, proved abortive.
