Oshiomhole Gets Succour As Allies Threatens Legal Action Against DG

Some allies of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole have threatened to drag the Director-General of the Progressives Governors Forum to court.

In a statement signed on Monday in Abuja, Chief Francis Inegbeneki and Alhaji Suleiman Bagudu warned that if the statement was not withdrawn, the DG, Salihu Lukman would face legal action.

The stakeholders described the statement by Lukman as offensive and malicious.

The duo said the statement was not only offensive but insultive.

Lukman, in a memo written to the Chief Bisi Akande-led APC peace panel on Sunday, had blamed Oshiomhole for the crisis rocking the party.

The group dismissed the contents of the momo as “arrant nonsense”, adding that the moment the DG decided to market himself to those who were afraid of the ongoing reforms in the APC, he ceased to be the DG of the Progressive Governors Forum.

It read in part, “For so long, we have kept quiet to his tantrums against the APC National Chairman, thinking that himself and his co-travellers, including Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, would turn a new leaf but they have persisted in their evil plot against Comrade Oshiomhole.

“Comrade Oshiomhole is not in the same category as small-minded men, like Lukman, who are making frantic efforts to please their paymasters.

“If his memo is not full of mischief and motivated by a compromised conscience that was not out to promote reconciliation, he should not have sent it to the press before making it available to the Committee members.”
