Calling for Lukman's sack as the DG of the PGF, the forum said Lukman's recent letter is aimed at destabilizing the party and giving an advantage to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of next year's general elections.

Ogbeh alleged that the PGF DG plans to sponsor miscreants to disrupt the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and stop every activity at the party’s National Secretariat.

He said:

"We find it most unfortunate that the DG decided to exploit the timing of our great party’s national convention to plying his poisonous ware by pretending to make a legitimate intervention."

The APC group, therefore, declared Lukman as an enemy of the APC, adding that he has no further business with leaders and members of the party.

Ogbeh added;

"Parts of the plans in his well-oiled campaign of calumny against the party is to sponsor miscreants to stop every activity at the party’s National Secretariat with some of the thugs already briefed to stage a similar paid protest to the Presidential Villa."

It, however, threatened that APC members across the state will revolt should Lukman remain in office beyond the next seven days.

The forum further handed a seven-day ultimatum to the PGF to sack Lukman or face a revolt from members of the party in APC controlled states.

Ogbeh said:

"Only such decisive assertion of party authority will send the message across that no form of indiscipline and undermining the party’s interest will be tolerated."
