After forcing Senator Abdullahi Adamu and Iyiola Omisore to resign as National Chairman and National Secretary, respectively, the National Vice Chairman, Northwest, of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Salihu Moh. Lukman has also resigned from office.
The Kaduna politician has, on several occasions, demanded the removal of Senator Adamu and Omisore.
In a letter addressed to the Acting National Chairman of the party, Senator Abubakar Kyari, Lukman said the party’s current leaders, including President Bola Tinubu, are at variance with his core values.
The letter reads: “I at this moment kindly resign my position as National Vice Chairman, Northwest 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 entirely at variance with the founding vision of forming a progressive party.
“Rather than remaining in the party’s leadership and becoming a source of distraction for leaders and especially for the young government of President Asiwaiu 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 sincere gratitude to our leaders in Kaduna, especially Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, for finding me worthy of nomination to serve at the highest of the party’s leadership.
“I hope all our leaders will appreciate that I had no option. I wish the party and all our leaders, especially President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, all the best. I will continue to give my modest support towards the party’s success from the background.”
