APC, PDP are the same – APC Chieftain, Salihu Lukman

“We were clear on the kind of party APC should be. We saw
the weaknesses of the PDP, apart from the imposition of candidates, part of the
problem was that elected candidates were not accountable to the party or
anybody and we thought building the APC would depart from that and that was
where the slogan ‘change’ came from.

 

“When the debate about the manifesto of the party was going
on, the conception was that the party was going to be social democratic with a
priority on the issues of health, education and social services but the party
has deviated,” Lukman said.

 

Lukman said part of the party’s problems started from
Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, adding that the President was like an
emperor because he was the singular electoral asset of the party.

 

“We were hoping with Asiwaju (President Bola Ahmed Tinubu),
things will start changing,” he said, lamenting that things rather got worse.

 

“We are having a party where some of its organs have not
been convened since its formation. We are having a party in which for one year
no meeting has taken place and that party is controlling the government,” the
APC chieftain lamented.
