APC: Party Chairman Accused Of Running One-Man Show

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu has been accused by the APC North-West National Vice Chairman, Mallam Salihu Lukman, of not carrying members along in the decision-making process.

The accusation comes less than 24 hours after the party postponed its convention and Lukman who expressed displeasure over recent developments described the anomalies as 'very shocking'.

Baring his mind in a leaked letter dated May 27, 2022, and titled ‘Rebuilding APC: Need for new Initiatives’, Lukman issued a warning to the leadership of the National Working Committee, saying that it could snowball into oblivion.

The letter is addressed to the chairman and copies President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, Speaker House of Representative, Femi Gbajabiamila, Chief Bisi Akande, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief Ogbonnaya Onu and all the NWC members.

"The big challenge is ensuring that decisions taken are faithfully implemented. The inability of previous leadership under His Excellency, Adams Oshiomhole and His Excellency, Mai Mala Buni, to implement decisions taken was partly responsible for the leadership crisis that confronted the party.


"Under your leadership, the current NWC is gradually snowballing into similar circumstances whereby decisions taken are allowed to lay bare and, in some instances, changed without necessarily taking needed steps to carry members along.

"No doubt, given all the challenges inherited and coming at a time when it’s extremely difficult to control events and almost everything would appear to have been set against the party and its leadership, we need to take every measure to avoid past pitfalls.

"Perhaps, it is important to acknowledge that, as National Chairman, you have raised the expectations of many of us in the NWC, and by extension many party leaders. For instance, the whole idea of setting up a transition committee, which took stock of what we have inherited, was your singular initiative", the statement partly reads.
