A member of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the North-west National Vice Chairman of the party, Comrade Salihu Lukman, has resigned his position from the ruling party.

Lukman has been critical of the move to appoint the former governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as the next national chairman of APC.

In a resignation letter signed Wednesday, July 26, 2033, Lukman said he will remain a member of the party with the hope that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will retract from acts that will be unjust and illegal.

The letter appreciated the APC leaders in Kaduna, especially former governor Nasir el-Rufai and others.

The letter reads: “I hereby kindly resign my position as National Vice Chairman, North-West of our great party. All Progressives Congress (APC). My resignation is with immediate effect, which becomes necessary given my conviction that the atmosphere in the party is complacent at variance with the founding vision of forming a progressive party.

“Rather than remaining in the leadership of the party and becoming a source of distraction for leaders and especially for the young government of President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, it is better to excuse myself and take time off from politics.

“I will, however, retain my membership of the party in the hope that our leaders, especially President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will retract from acts that will be unjust and illegal, which is crucial to any claim of being democratic or progressive whether as politicians or as patriotic Nigerians.

“I wish to convey my sincere gratitude to our leaders in Kaduna, especially Mallam Nasir Ahmad Ei-Rufai for finding me worthy of nomination to serve at the highest level of the party’s leadership. I do hope all our leaders will appreciate that I am left with no option in the circumstance. I wish the party and all our leaders, especially President Asiwaju Bold Ahmed Tinubu all the best and will continue to give my modest support towards the success of the party from the background.”
