APC can no longer win elections without rigging – Lukman

Salihu Lukman, former Director General of Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) and immediate-past National Vice Chairman, North West of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has stated that the party can no longer win elections without rigging.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Lukman stated that he felt compelled to write to a few party officials to convey his views on the situation both within the party and around the country.

He said:

“It is a shared concern of most leaders of the party that the situation in the country has deteriorated in the last year since the assumption of office of President Bola Tinubu.

“Given a reality that the party structures have been demobilized and the government is implementing policies that have eroded the value of incomes of citizens, conditions of living are rapidly getting worse by the day. With that, both the APC and the governments it controls are getting more and more unpopular.

“It doesn’t require any investigation, at this rate, there is no way we can win election except through rigging. The popular saying in the country now is that President Tinubu is a one-term President. The hard truth is that the country will be lucky to get to 2027, without witnessing upheavals.”

In his view, Nigerians ought to take the necessary lessons from their experiences with both former President Muhammadu Buhari and current President Tinubu. They should prioritise building a robust party organisation that can subjugate the President and all elected representatives to party organs going forward.

According to him:

“Given all this, it is not possible to remain in APC, if at all President Tinubu will allow internal reform in the party to return it to its founding vision, which as it is, is very remote. But my reality now in the party is that my membership has been rendered useless and there is no need for me to continue to impose myself.

Praying that God touches the heart of President Tinubu to make him recover whatever is left of his democratic credentials, Lukman said he had lost hope that after one year of planless leadership, not much can be achieved during his administration.”
