The National Vice Chairman, North-West, of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Salihu Lukman, has resigned his position from the party,

Mr Lukman’s resignation came one week after the resignation of Senator Abdullahi Adamu and Iyiola Omisore, as the APC National Chairman and National Secretary, respectively

Lukman, in a letter dated 26th july, 2023 said he was resigning because of the President’s undemocratic actions within the party.

Read full statement:

“I hereby kindly resign my position as National Vice Chairman, North-West of our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

“My resignation is with immediate
effect, which becomes 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 become a source of distraction for leaders and especially for the young government of President Asiwaju
Bola Ahmed Tinubu, it is better to excuse myself and take time off from 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.

“I wish to convey my sincerely gratitude to our leaders in Kaduna, especially Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai for finding me worthy of nomination to serve at the highest
level of the party’s leadership. I do hope all our leaders will appreciate that I am left with no option in the circumstance.

“I wish the party and all our leaders, especially President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu all the best and will continue to give my
modest support towards the success of the party from the background.”
