Lukman stated thus:

"Unlike many, I believe that, with all our shortcomings in APC and weak capacity to access and influence decisions of President Asiwaju Tinubu, all is not lost. To the extent that APC leaders and President Asiwaju Tinubu can consider proposals for internal reform of the APC, the prospects of APC rectifying its shortcomings, returning to its founding vision of emerging as a progressive party are there."

APC chief calls for N100bn budget

Lukman said there is no reason why APC, being the ruling party, can not operate a national annual budget of over N100 billion.

He disclosed further that the Dr Abdullahi Ganduje-led National Working Committee of the APC must work towards raising an annual budget of N100bn to operate at an optimal level and to avoid depending on elected officials for funding.

Lukman also demanded that deliberate reforms be carried out on the organs of the ruling party to give their candidates stronger electoral advantages ahead of the 2027 general elections.

"Note that National Annual Budget should cover the operations of all party organs, from National to states, local governments and Wards. It is only when a ruling party can operate National Annual Budget of more than N100 Billion that the condition of service for party leaders at all levels can be benchmarked with public service conditions.
"It is my wish that APC leaders, especially President Asiwaju Tinubu will consider these proposals in responding to challenges facing the APC.
"Achieving this when the next general election is more than three years away, would confer stronger electoral advantages to the APC. For other parties, to effectively compete against the APC, they will need to be equally reformists and not conformist."
