“We Are Likely Going To Start Witnessing Rebellion If Care Is Not Taken by 2027, Tinubu May be kicked out of office” – Dr Salihu Lukman
The former director general of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), Dr Salihu Lukman, has said President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is at risk of losing re-election in 2027.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, Lukman hinted at an impending rebellion among the ranks of the party in no distant time from now.
Lukman, who resigned his position as APC’s national vice chairman (North West), argued that the APC-led administration is not living up to the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians.
“And I think we must be honest and this is the point I say to our leaders, without any inhibition. At the moment, our democracy is not responsive enough. And as a party of vision to be progressive, it is certainly not yet progressive,” he claimed.
“And I think I’m worried that our leaders have become very comfortable to imagine that they can do anything and get away with it. We must appeal to our leaders that things are almost getting out of hand at the rate at which we are going under a party that is envisioned to be progressive.
“ We are likely going to start witnessing rebellion and if care is not taken by 2027 we will be kicked out of office, which means taking Nigeria back to where it was in 2015. I think we owe our leader the responsibility or President Asiwaju the responsibility to tell him the honest truth.”
The Kaduna-born politician explained that his book titled: “APC and Transition Politics” billed to be launched on Tuesday next week at the Yar’Adua Centre Abuja, was aimed at repositioning the party ahead of the 2027 polls.
He said as a strong supporter of President Tinubu, he cannot sit by to watch things go out of hand as a founding member of the APC.
