Tinubu Is Running Government Like A Dictator – Former APC VC

Salihu Mohammed Lukman, former National Vice Chairman (North West) of the All Progressives Congress, has accused President Bola Tinubu of running the country like a military dictator.

Lukman, who stated that the country’s current security and socioeconomic challenges are a threat to Tinubu’s second term and have the potential to close the party’s “shop” in 2027 if not addressed quickly, accused the President of shutting down the party’s structures and acting like a king with absolute knowledge of solutions to Nigerian problems.

In a statement issued on Saturday, March 2, the former APC National Vice Chairman said that both former President Muhammadu Buhari and incumbent President Tinubu have undermined the substance of the merger in 2013 and the APC programme by inflicting misery on Nigerians.

The statement read; “What Nigerians are having today wasn’t what was promised at all. The most disturbing reality is that the current economic hardship was produced during the first term of President Asiwaju Tinubu, with no end in sight. Does it then mean that President Asiwaju Tinubu is not interested in a second term? Certainly not.

“If he is interested in a second term, why is he managing affairs of government like a military dictator, shutting down the structures of the party and talking down to citizens like a philosopher king who has absolute knowledge of what will produce possible happiness for citizens?

“Unless the objective is to secure a second term by other means and not votes of the electorate, there can not be any logical reasoning. Could that be the reason for the newfound love of some identified political mercenaries who were strongly opposed to the election of President Asiwaju Tinubu? How successful could they be?

“If military governments with all their recruited mercenaries could fail to guarantee their survival how could anyone imagine that mercenaries could win a second term for President Asiwaju?

“Once they achieved that, any other thing with respect to good government and policy orientation is hardly a priority. Impliedly, this means that the whole merger exercise producing the APC was a deception. Rightly or wrongly, many APC leaders and members have come to accept this explanation as the main objective for the merger.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
