The Director-General of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Mr Salihu Lukman has advised the All Progressives Congress against having what he called blind trust in some of the Leaders of the ruling Party towards the 2023 general elections.
Mr Lukman warned that the APC may not be able to win the next Presidential election or have its candidate to succeed the President Muhammadu Buhari.
The DG in a statement issued on Monday, April 12, 2021, recalled how the ruling Party lost Governorship elections in some States in the 2019 general elections, which he attributed to sabotage by APC Leaders in the affected States.
He therefore called for regulation of Party Leaders’ activities, saying there is a need to ensure that appropriate conditions exist to regulate the conduct of Political Leaders, especially elected representatives.
Mr Lukman added that beyond the need to regulate the conduct of Political Leaders, there is also the need to appeal to leaders of the Party to rise above the narrow attitude of relating with challenges based on estimation of support or opposition for ambitions of Party Leaders.
