Ex-APC Vice-Chairman Lukman criticizes President Tinubu’s impulsive decision-making style

A former Vice-Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the North-West, Salihu Lukman, has raised serious concerns about the leadership style of President Bola Tinubu, accusing him of making impulsive decisions that lack clearly defined plans.

Lukman, who is also a former Director-General of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, conveyed his views in a statement released on Saturday.

Highlighting major policy decisions made since President Tinubu assumed office on May 29, 2023, Lukman pointed to the removal of the subsidy on petroleum products, the floating of the Naira exchange rate, and the sanctions against Niger Republic following the July 26, 2023 coup.

Lukman asserted that these decisions appeared to be announced before thorough consideration of their consequences, suggesting a reactive approach rather than a proactive one.

He contended that had the government formulated a comprehensive policy plan aligned with the APC manifesto and Renewed Hope 2023, it could have avoided challenges arising from impromptu decisions.

Lukman further alleged that President Tinubu has isolated himself from key party structures, limiting access to a select few party leaders.

The former APC Vice-Chairman criticized the perceived concentration of power in the presidency, comparing it to previous administrations. He argued that President Tinubu’s leadership nullified a zoning agreement within the party, demonstrating a lack of consultation with party leaders in the affected zones.

Lukman questioned the future of the APC, expressing concerns about the party’s trajectory. He pondered whether the APC, originally envisioned as a progressive party, was now producing governments in reverse gear.

He raised important questions about leaders’ indifference to the party’s electoral fortunes and its potential implications for the future of democracy in Nigeria.

In a sharp critique, Lukman challenged the current economic hardships, attributing them to the first term of President Tinubu and questioning the leader’s management style.

He questioned whether President Tinubu, if interested in a second term, was managing government affairs like a military dictator, expressing apprehension about the shutdown of party structures and what he perceived as a condescending tone toward citizens.

As the APC grapples with internal challenges, Lukman’s analysis sheds light on the potential ramifications of impulsive decision-making and its impact on both the party and the broader democratic landscape in Nigeria.
