Salihu Lukman's departure from the APC seems to be a significant development, especially considering his previous positions within the party. His criticism of the party's affairs and policies, along with his decision to return to the political arena ahead of the 2027 general elections, suggests that he remains active and engaged in Nigeria's political landscape.

His decision not to disclose his next political party adds an element of intrigue, leaving observers to speculate on his future political alliances and potential impact. It also underscores the fluidity of Nigerian politics, where allegiances can shift, and new political configurations can emerge.

He said: “Given all this, it is possible to remain in APC if at all President Tinubu will allow internal reform in the party to return it to its founding vision, which as it is, is very remote. But my reality now in the party is that my membership has been rendered useless and there is no need for me to continue to impose myself.

“I have therefore gone back to the trenches and will try to work with all committed Nigerians who agree and subscribe to the goal of actively campaigning for the survival and development of democracy in Nigeria.

“We must grow our democracy to the point whereby elected representatives at all levels are accountable to the party and it is possible for Nigerians represented by various interests to develop strong relationship with political parties and elected governments based on which policies of governments can be made to reflect wider interests of Nigerians.

“I am confident that a strong democracy with functional political parties is possible in Nigeria. I am also confident that in our lifetime we can produce governments that are truly capable of making the lives of Nigerians better. I don’t expect party leaders will agree with my decision. I believe that eventually, we will be united will all party leaders and other Nigerians who are committed to developing Nigerian democracy.”

This development could also prompt discussions about the state of democracy within the APC and the broader Nigerian political context, particularly regarding the need for internal reforms and the role of leadership in facilitating such changes.
