We Don’t Need A Rugged Captain To Rule For 40 Years- APC To Sheriff

The president of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), Salihu Lukman, has stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) does not need a “rugged captain” to rule for 40 years.

Recall that the erstwhile governor of Borno State and current APC national chairmanship aspirant, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, had told correspondent some days back in Abuja, that the party, which he said aspires to remain in power for the next 40 to 50 years needed a “rugged captain”.

However, while interviewed on an AIT programme, JIGSAW, he expatiated on his new book, “APC Litmus Test”, Lukman said only citizens who are qualified to vote can determine the APC’s chances of governing for more years. InformationGuideNigeria

In his words, a leader should be thinking about how to endear his people to himself not the other way round. It’s not a question of how long you ruled but how you have been able to carry your people along.

According to Independence, in Lukman’s words: “The other issue is how the party organises itself. We can’t have a party where for instance, I have seen recently somebody aspiring for national chairmanship of the party saying the party needs a tough person to rule up to 40 years .jambresults

“If you say you want to rule for 40 years, it is a question of going to lobby citizens to vote you. This is where we are coming from in terms of manipulating elections and what have you and these are the brutal issues in terms of politics in Nigeria which will take time to change. It is not a one day thing, it is a life journey and we have to embark on that journey,” he said.
