Lukman to Omisore: Account for APC campaign fund, stop intimidation
All Progressives Congress (APC) National Vice Chairman (North West), Dr. Salihu Lukman, has reiterated the call on the National Secretary, Sen. Iyiola Omisore, to render account of campaign fund meant for Osun State.
Lukman, while reacting to the threat by Omisore that he would drag him to court for character assassination, maintained that he would not be intimidated for demanding openness in the running of the party.
In a statement entitled, ‘Re: APC Internal Dynamics and Future of Democracy’, he blamed Omisore for the defeat suffered by the APC in the hands of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 25 presidential poll in Osun.
The Kaduna State-born politician restated his call on the National Chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, and Omisore to resign their positions in demonstration of their willingness to make sacrifices to earn the respect of senators-elect and Reps-elect.
He enjoined the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, to ensure an inclusive government in which Nigerians, irrespective of their ethnic and religious leanings, would have a sense of belonging.
“I make this appeal respectfully and without any ill-feeling to anyone, including Omisore. I stand by my position that Omisore is unable to unite party leaders and members in Osun, which is responsible for our loss in the election.
“He is opposed to any demand for accountability and is resorting to acts of intimidation. What makes democracy attractive is the requirement for accountability, and Omisore must be held accountable. We need to have accountable leaders,” he said.
