APC Governors Forum DG replies Oshiomhole  

The Director-General, Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), Dr. Salihu Lukman has replied former National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for attacking him.

Lukman was reacting to a statement made by the former governor of Edo State, likening him to a pig and an empty mind. Oshiomhole additionally suggested Luqman to cease spreading rumours about him and proceed speaking for APC governors.

In a statement on Tuesday, Lukman stated he held Oshiomhole in excessive esteem and wouldn’t join issues with him. He requested Oshiomhole to carry him accountable for all of the comments made, as he was not a voice for any Governor.

“You are all aware of the statement attributed to the former National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. I want to make two brief statements as a rider to what I will call an appeal. The first statement is to say very unequivocally that I hold Comrade Adams Oshiomhole in very high esteem.

“I respect him, not just as a leader of APC, but as a person. I have had a very good relationship with him and my relationship with him is special. My relationship with him is not in the way people imagined. The question of agreeing or disagreeing has been part of our relationship. I respect him and I respect every leader of the party.

“My prayer and hope is that our leaders will be able to have the needed large heart to tolerate one another and tolerate all of us because as human beings, God has created us differently. And it is the basis of the test of leadership – to be able to show an open, accommodating disposition to each one of us,” he stated.

He added that “The second statement I want to make is that I grew up in a very complex extended family set up and one of the things it has done in terms of my personal make up is that it imposes on me to be accountable at every point in time.

“When I commit an offence, based on my upbringing in that environment, I never transfer any of my offences to my parents or to any of my senior ones. I was always made to account and where there is the need as part of that accountability for me to be punished, I get punished.

“Having said that, I am open and ready to account for whatever I had said to the party and the leadership; if in the end the process of accountability requires that I get sanctioned, I will accept and I will remain in this party and continue to contribute in whatever way I can to help the development of the party.”
