APC Crisis: Adamu, Omisore Lack Powers To Expel Me – Lukman

Salihu Moh'd Lukman, the party's national vice chairman for the North West, declared Wednesday that the Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee lacked the authority to expel him, effectively ending the issue that has been roiling the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This comes after Ahmad Usman El-Marzuq, the party's national legal counsel, wrote to Adamu the previous day, urging him to suggest the expulsion of Lukman for taking the party's national chairman and secretary to court.

Lukman had filed a lawsuit against the APC, Adamu, and Iyiola Omisore, requesting that the court order them to call a meeting of the party's National Executive Committee (NEC) and give a report on everything that had happened in the party, including its financial situation from 2022 to the present.

In response to the national legal adviser's request for his dismissal, Lukman wrote to Adamu, copying President Muhammadu Buhari, APC governors, president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and others, asserting that the NWC lacked the authority to remove him.

There is no provision in the APC constitution that grants the NWC the authority to penalize any party members, Lukman asserted, adding that he would not drop his legal claim even if he were expelled. The document has already been sent to my legal counsel, so they can take additional legal action.
