Mohammed Salihu Lukman, the Director General of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), has tendered his resignation to the Forum.
According To LEADERSHIP, his resignation on Monday came barely 24 hours after the governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) met at the Kebbi State Governor’s Lodge on Sunday night.
Attempts to get the reaction of the PGF DG proved abortive.
The newspaper said that the decision to ease the DG out of office, with resignation as soft landing, may have been reached at the meeting of the APC governors who were said to have been divided over the fate of Lukman.
A source at the meeting hinted that the governors discussed the hard stance of Lukman on the party’s leadership which he had been criticising of recent over refusal to hold the party’s national convention.
Four days ago, Mr. Lukman warned the Mai Mala Buni led Caretaker Committee of the ruling party, that, delaying the convention beyond February date would further weaken the chances of the ruling party to win future elections.
