Hey there, middle schoolers! Today, we’re going to talk about some interesting stuff happening in Nigerian politics. So, there’s this guy named Salihu Lukman, who used to be a big shot in a political party called the All Progressives Congress (APC). He recently said that some leaders in the party didn’t want another guy named Bola Tinubu to become the President of Nigeria. And guess what? These leaders are now getting important positions in the government!
One of the leaders that Lukman mentioned is a man named Hope Uzodinma, who is the Governor of Imo State. Lukman said that Uzodinma actually tried to make another guy named Ahmed Lawan the presidential candidate for the APC. But guess what happened? Uzodinma ended up becoming the Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum under Tinubu’s administration. It’s all a bit confusing, right?
Lukman is pretty disappointed with all of this. He said that it’s not fair that the people who didn’t want Tinubu to be President are now getting important jobs in the government. He also warned the APC not to become like another political party called the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The APC was supposed to be different and bring positive changes to Nigerian politics, but Lukman thinks it’s starting to become just like the PDP.
Lukman wants the APC to remember its original goals and objectives. He said that the party was created to make Nigerian politics more democratic and fair. But now, it seems like the party is becoming corrupt and not sticking to its promises. Lukman believes that the party needs to change and go back to its founding vision. He also wants party politics in the country to be reformed.
So, that’s the scoop, middle schoolers! It’s all about politics and power struggles. Let’s see what happens next in Nigerian politics and if the APC can get back on track!
