Edo 2020: Caution Governors’ Forum DG – APC Chieftain Warns Mala Buni



2023: Intrigue As APC Woos Three PDP Governors

The Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC, Mai Mala Buni, has been asked to caution the APC Governors’ Forum Director-General (DG), Dr Salihu Lukman.

Recall that Lukman had accused former National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, of hijacking the campaign structure of the APC governorship candidate in Edo.

It would be recalled that the APC governors’ forum director-general had in a recent statement titled: ‘Which Way, APC?’, claimed that Oshiomhole had hijacked Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s campaign.

Lukeman raised the alarm over what he described as the diminishing electoral value of the party.

He also raised alarm over the plan by some member of the APC to return Oshiomhole as party chairman.

According to the DG of Progressives Governors Forum, he noted that with the happenings in Edo State, the ruling party is not ready for the electoral process in Edo State.

Speaking to newsmen on Friday, APC chieftain in Edo, Bright Obarogie, said Lukman’s intent and purpose were not for the good of the party.

He urged the Yobe governor to call Lukman to order, NAN reports.

Obarogie said,  “What Oshiomhole had succeeded in doing since the beginning of the campaign for the Edo poll, was to have placed APC in a position as the party to beat in the election.”

He pointed out that Oshiomhole had added bite to the campaign and united all the party faithful in the quest to take back the state.

“The working relationship between Oshiomhole and Ize-Iyamu, the party’s candidate, and indeed the entire APC campaign team, has never been this smooth.

“We are all united and working harmoniously to win and win big for our party,” Obarogie said.
