An All Progressive Congress (APC) stakeholder, Salihu Mohammed Lukman, has revealed what the party needs to do if it intends to win the 2023 Presidential Election.
Lukman, the Director-General of the Progressives Governors’ Forum (PGF), urged the party to adopt the model it used in the build-up to the 2015 general election to win the 2023 presidential poll.
He said that regular meetings by APC bigwigs and power brokers between 2013 and 2014, led to President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in 2015.
The DG while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Monday, October 26, during the presentation of his new book titled “APC And Progressive Politics in Nigeria” 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 leaders of the party to demonstrate its progressive credentials by putting in place a credible and verifiable membership register.
According to him, “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.”
