The former Director-General of Progressives Governors Forum, Salihu Lukman, has called for leaders working to obstruct the February 26 convention of the All Progressives Congress to be sanctioned.
The APC chieftain made the call in a statement released on Sunday, as he charges the ruling party to return to the era when internal debates, negotiations, and agreements were respected.
He further stated that the party has derailed because President Muhammadu Buhari does not meddle in affairs.
Lukman accused some leaders in the party of abusing the trust of the president and the majority of party members.
He said, “This has damaged the profile of the APC to the point whereby, based on the conduct of leaders and some elected representatives, it is difficult to associate the APC with its founding vision of change.”
Lukman declared that the current APC is not that of 2013 to 2015 before it assumed power.
The APC chieftain added that apart from the President, there are very few elected leaders that are still committed to the change mandate.
He called on the ruling party to produce office holders highly tolerant and accommodate dissenting opinions.
