The director-general urged party leaders to unite and return to the era of holding regular meetings without sidelining those with opposing views ahead of 2023.

He also appealed to the top echelon of the party to demonstrate its progressive credentials by putting in place a credible and verifiable membership register.

Lukman said:

“Part of what is needed in the circumstance is to remind our leaders that one of the factors that ensured that our leaders were united, which made the electoral victory of 2015 possible was that they were meeting almost on weekly basis.
“The truth is, our leaders were united because they exhibited a high level of tolerance, which contributed to making the party attractive. These are progressive credentials which the party and our leaders must return to.”
