In a statement on Monday, Nabena said supporters of these aspirants must desist from smear campaigns that could demarket the candidature of anyone who eventually emerges as APC’s flagbearer.“My appeal is for all our members to embrace issues-based campaign strategies in selling whoever they feel should succeed our dear President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023,” the politician said.In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Abiodun Agboola, the party described Famodun, whom it claimed is a former chairman, as a failed party administrator and harbinger of misfortune into the party.Advertisement “There is no need to be unnecessarily emotive about it.The power play from the various interest groups and power blocks within the ruling party on whether the convention should hold in February or not eventually consumed Lukman, who was seen by many as the conscience of the party.“I believe that all our presidential aspirants are well qualified to pick the ticket.The party also accused Famodun of refusing to speak the truth and failing to act as a responsible party chairman at the early state of the crisis in the party.It is a fact that participatory democracy gives room for choices even within the same political party as it is a practice in the APC.Lukman’s phone number was, however, switched off at the time of filing this report when our correspondent called for comments.

“We should therefore engage constructively without demonising ourselves bearing in mind that whatever we say against each other now will later be capitalized on by other political parties during the general elections.“Famodun should bury his head in shame and shut his mouth up seeing the party handed over to him enmeshed in crisis because of his ineptitude and selfishness.Efforts to get Lukman to react to the issue were unsuccessful as of the time of filing this but sources at the PGF secretariat confirmed the development.Advertisement “It is also important not to distract both the party and some of our aspirants who are still holding one position of responsibility or the other.We should not deny Nigerians the dividends of democracy we promised by unnecessarily heating up the polity.” Gboyega Famodun had responded to the statement credited to Aregbesola’s disclosure that he was a member of the Rasaq Salinsile-led faction of the party and a member of The Osun Progressives (TOP).” Tags.
