Director-General of the Progressives Governors Forum, Salihu Lukman, on Thursday, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to take urgent steps to end the chaos in the All Progressives Congress in order to protect his legacy.
PGF DG stated this in a memo made available to newsmen in Abuja.
PGF is the umbrella body of all governors elected on the platform of the APC. There are currently 20 governors who are members of the forum
According to Lukman, “What makes the situation more frustrating is the reticence of President Buhari in the face of what obviously could damage the legacy he will bequeath to the nation.
“While we must celebrate the fact that his leadership style is required to ensure that the party is managed independently and therefore made possible for the exercise of the supremacy of the party based on decisions of organs, ‘old ambition-Virus 2023’ may have weakened the capacity of the party to benefit from the commendable leadership approach of President Buhari.”
He said all well-meaning members of the APC should be ashamed of what is currently happening in the ruling party, which he said was, “gradually slipping into disintegration with a defective leadership.”
The PGF boss emphasised that time had come for all true leaders of the APC to live up to expectations.
He argued that as the ruling party at the Federal level, the APC had no excuse not to do everything legally possible to save the government from the distraction being caused it by the brouhaha in the party.
He wondered why a political party which parades leaders such as: President Buhari, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, Chief Bisi Akande, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu and so many others, find it difficult to reorganise itself to fulfil the dreams of its founding fathers.
He recommended that a National Executive Committee meeting be convened to thrash out all outstanding issues.
