Salihu Moh Lukman, the Director-General of the Progressive Governors ’Forum (PGF), has told the National Chairman of the All Progressives (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to convene a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the party or resign without further ado.

Lukman’s call came on the heel of the multiple internal crises rocking the party in states across the country.

There has also been a power tussle between Oshiomhole and his successor, Godwin Obaseki, which Lukman described as embarrassing to the ruling party.

In a statement he personally signed and made available to reporters on Wednesday, Lukman said the National Working Committee (NWC), an administrative organ of the party, including just a select members of the NEC and tasked with the responsibility of executing decisions of the NEC, had hijacked the responsibilities of the apex decision-making organ of the party, the NEC, which he said seemed to have been suspended.

In the statement he entitled ‘APC and our Inconceivable Organisational Challenges: Urgent Call to our Leaders,’ he noted that many of the crises facing the party in the state, many of which had cost the party in some states hitherto considered as its stronghold states, are those that the NEC or National Caucus meeting of the party is designed to sort out.

The statement added, “Side by side with the news of the of no confidence was also the discomforting of the Federal High Court judgment in Abuja disqualifying Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo as our Deputy Governorship candidate for the November 16, , Bayelsa .

“While expecting that every necessary step will be taken to vacate the judgment, it is very depressing for every committed party member to be subjected to such ignominious reality, which only reminds us of our reckless conducts in states like Zamfara, Rivers, Bauchi and Adamawa, which chiefly gave away electoral victories to PDP.

“Instead of focusing on working to win elections, we are busy undermining ourselves. All these are ominous signs that we are about to re-enact the Zamfara, Rivers, Bauchi and Adamawa experiences in Bayelsa.

“It is Bayelsa today, Anambra, Edo, and Ondo are being set up for similar experiences. Somehow, unfortunately, the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party, which is the organ vested with the statutory responsibility of responding to all these challenges appear to be suspended.

“The last time it met was August 2018. In its place, the National Working Committee (NWC), which is an administrative organ with the responsibility of implementing decisions of NEC and other higher organs seems to have usurped the powers of NEC.”

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives , APC, in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, risks being arrested on July 14.

Ize-Iyamu may be arrested if he fails to appear before a Federal High Court in Benin City, Edo State for allegedly laundering the sum of N700m.

EFCC had informed a Federal High Court in Benin City, that Ize-Iyamu and his fellow suspects took possession of about N700 million without any contracts.

However, the court had on July 2 adjourned the matter to July 14 due to the absence of Ize-Iyamu, who was said to be indisposed.

The trial had been delayed due to Ize-Iyamu’s absence, even as the presiding judge, Justice Mohammed Garba, had earlier validated the charges against him.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is the first defendant in the suit No. FHC/BE21C/ 2016 filed by the EFCC, who accused the defendants of conspiring among themselves to commit the offence in March 2015, alleging that they took possession and control of the funds without any contract award.

The judge rejected the oral request for a prolonged adjournment of the case by the counsel to Ize-Iyamu, who argued that his client will not disobey the order of the court.
