APC ex-vice chair, Lukman, finally dumps party



A former national vice chairman (North-West) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Salihu Mohammed Lukman, has withdrawn his membership of the party.

Lukman, a former member of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), in a statement  on Wednesday said he left the party because of “lack of internal democracy” and alleged failure of  President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to allow reforms within the party.

The APC chieftain has consistently criticised party leaders for allegedly jettisoning the founding vision and not embracing reforms.

He said he had gone back to the trenches to work with other political leaders for the survival of democracy in the country.


He said, “It is possible to remain in APC if at all President Asiwaju Tinubu will allow internal reform in the party to return it to its founding vision, which as it is, is very remote.”

Lukman said with the reality that there won’t be any internal reform in the party, he decided to go “back to the trenches and will try to work with all committed Nigerians who agree and subscribe to the goal of actively campaigning for the survival and development of democracy in Nigeria.”
