- The DG Progressive Governors' Forum (PGF), Salihu Mohammed Lukman, has revealed the strategy APC must use to win the 2023 poll
- Lukman made the revelation on Monday, October 26, in Abuja during the presentation of a book
- The APC chieftain said the unity among the leaders of the party in 2015 helped President Buhari to win the election
Salihu Mohammed Lukman, the director-general of the Progressives Governors' Forum (PGF), has advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) to adopt the model it used in the build-up to the 2015 general election to win the 2023 presidential poll.
Legit.ng reports that he said the regular meetings by APC bigwigs and power brokers between 2013 and 2014, led to President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in 2015.
Lukman made the plea on Monday, October 26, while speaking with newsmen in Abuja, during the presentation of his new book titled - APC And Progressive Politics in Nigeria.
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.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the APC asked the youths to call off their demonstrations following the EndSARS protests rocking almost all the states in the country.
It was reported that the party said it would support President Muhammadu Buhari in implementing the protesters' demands in the interest of peace and unity to return in the country.
