Salihu Lukman has resigned from his position as the national Vice Chairman, Northwest, of All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was gathered that Lukman… who sent in his resignation yesterday, July 26, citing illegalities in the conduct of affairs of the ruling party. He claimed that the current behavior of the party’s leaders, including President Bola Tinubu, contradicts his own personal beliefs and values.
The letter addressed to the Acting National Chairman of the party, Senator Abubakar Kyari, read, “I hereby kindly resign my position as National Vice Chairman, North-West of our great party. All Progressives Congress APC. My resignation which is with immediate effect, became necessary given my conviction that the atmosphere in the party is completely at variance with the founding vision of forming a progressive party.
“Rather than remaining in the leadership of the party and becoming a source of distraction for leaders and especially for the young government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, it is better to excuse myself and take time off politics.
“I will, however, retain my membership of the party in the hope that our leaders, especially President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will retract from acts that will be unjust and illegal, which is crucial to any claim of being democratic or progressive whether as politicians or as patriotic Nigerians.”
