The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) have written Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) saying the latter is responsible for the party’s declining fortunes.
According to Lukman, there is hardly any difference between Oshiomole’s management of the party and the way Chief John Odigie-Oyegun handled it during his tenure. “Instead, things have really got worse and painfully, it would appear, you are in denial of this reality. “It would appear that the leadership problems facing the party are getting deeper and in the circumstance, the business of building the party will be sacrificed,” he said.
The letter claimed the party’s defeat and loss in the governorship elections in Zamfara, Oyo, Imo, Bauchi, and Adamawa states were the result of internal wrangling allegedly created by Oshiomhole. It warned that the party could lose in Kogi, Ondo and Edo in their forthcoming elections. “It is a painful reality that we have found ourselves in a situation of near stalemate in many states under your leadership.
“Embarrassingly, our leaders, including your very self, appear to be stubbornly inconsiderate of other options of resolving these challenges,” the letter added while urging Oshiomhole to allow room for divergent views in proffering solutions to problems.
There was no official response from Adams Oshiomhole as at the time of publishing this report.
