Director General of the Progressive Governors’ Forum PGF, Salihu Moh. Lukman has told the newly constituted Caretaker/Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress APC to expel any member of the dissolved National Working Committee NWC who challenges their dissolution in court.
He said that though National Executive Council of the party was yet to successfully resolve the crises in the party, it can be said “the ugly period” was over as the Convention Working Committee will manage the party for a period of six months and organise a National Convention to elect a new leadership.
“Given that a section of the dissolved National Working Committee (NWC) are threatening legal actions against the decision of the NEC, what does this mean? It simply means that a section of the dissolved NWC are working against the party. Perhaps the Convention Working Committee should consider invoking provisions of Article 21: Discipline of Party Members of the APC constitution by taking advantage of the now discovered micropowers of ward leaders. Based on that those members of the dissolved NWC who attempt to institute legal actions against the decisions of NEC should be appropriately sanctioned.
“It is the responsibility of the Convention Working Committee to ensure that all the rascally conducts of party leaders that characterised the APC leadership conflict are brought under control. We should on no account tolerate conduct of any leader of the party, which makes them more associated with activities of bandits who don’t respect any rule or any leader,” he said.
