Mallam Salihu Lukman, the National Vice Chairman for North-West, has issued a warning against replacing the ousted National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, with former Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje.
Lukman expressed concern that such a move may disrupt the zoning arrangement of the party.
Speculation has arisen that President Bola Tinubu may have chosen Ganduje as the next chairman of the APC following the departure of Adamu and former National Secretary, Senator Iyiola Omisore.
Lukman stated that if this speculation is true, it would be highly insensitive and would disregard the party members.
He emphasized that such a decision would completely distort the current configuration of the leadership of the National Assembly, as it would go against the zoning arrangement.
Lukman urged the governors to discard any consideration of Ganduje as the National Chairman and to retain the position in the North Central region.
He also called on President Tinubu to intervene and guide the process of restoring constitutional order and returning the APC to its founding vision of progressive politics.
Lukman emphasized the importance of inclusion and justice in progressive politics and warned against blind and insensitive considerations.
He cautioned that failure to address these issues could lead to the emergence of leaders worse than Adamu and Omisore.
