The National Secretary of All Progressives Congress, Senator Iyiola Omisore, on Tuesday night described the National Vice Chairman of North-West, Mallam Salihu Lukman, as a loose canon and the ‘black sheep’ of the party.
This was as he denied that the APC was aware of some disgruntled members seeking the removal of the party’s National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
Omisore made the claim during an interview on Channels Television’s programme, ‘Politics Today’.
The development is coming barely two months after Lukman accused Adamu of running the party like a garrison commander.
According to The Punch, the Kaduna politician had already filed court proceedings against Adamu and Omisore for failing to furnish the party’s account, refusing to call a meeting of the National Executive Committee, and violating the party’s bylaws.
But Omisore described the National Vice Chairman for North-West as a gaslighter who liked crying wolf where there was none.
“What else do you want us to do to him? Beat or kill him? When you listen to people like Lukman, you won’t know what is happening. This your Lukman that doesn’t attend meetings. He is acting like a loose canon.
“The NWC members are 25 and only one person, Lukman, has written so many letters, which bothered on ignorance on his part. About two months ago, he came to apologise and held a press conference to say he wasn’t well informed about what he did. All he said were things done within the party. He never attends party meetings,” Omisore said.
When asked if he was aware many APC supporters and NWC members wanted Adamu to be kicked out of the party, Omisore dismissed the report.
He also berated those secretly backing or standing by Lukman’s philosophy, saying they were ‘cowards.’
“We are not aware of any. But know that they are cowards too. There are cowards everywhere. So it is not impossible. But the point is that out of 25 members of the NWC, only one person is the ‘black sheep.’
“He is just used to doing the rantings. There is nothing special about it. This was somebody who came to apologise openly at a press conference. How can you take someone like that seriously?” he quipped.
Efforts made to reach Lukman for reaction were unsuccessful.
He had not answered the phone as of the time this story was filed, nor had he responded to a text sent to his mobile number.
