We didn’t call for Oshiomhole’s resignation - APC Governors

Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday denounced purported call by the Director General of Progressive Governors’ Forum, Saliu Lukman on Wednesday asking the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole to convene a NEC meeting or resign.

According to them, the said the statement did not emanate and could not have emanated from the Progressive Governors Forum.

A source close to one of the governors, told the Nation that “The Director General is on his own sponsored errand.”

It was also learnt there has been no meeting of the Progressives Governors Forum or that of the forum’s executives to deliberate on current issues that could have warranted such volatile statement credited to the Director General.

APC National Vice Chairman (South-South), Hilliard Eta, dismissed Lukman’s statement, saying the director general was “speaking for himself”.
