Vice-President Kashim Shettima, former Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, and Abdullahi Ganduje, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are billed to speak at the public presentation of a book titled “APC and Transitional Politics” on December 19.

Bisi Akande, a former national chairman of the APC, is also expected to speak at the event that will take place in Abuja.

The book is authored by Salihu Lukman, immediate-past vice-chairman of the APC in the north-west.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, Lukman said the book is a reminder to APC leaders and members about the value and the struggle to get the party to where it is currently.

“We must not because today Asiwaju is the president of the federal republic of Nigeria assuming that we have achieved, no we have to continue to struggle,” he said.

“And for me, as far as I am concerned, Asiwaju is like any one of us, he is a human being. He has his strengths, he has his limitations.

“So we must remain committed so that when we see he’s not doing the right thing we draw his attention.

“A situation where all of us become sycophantic and everything he does is right. We must not get to that.

“So that is one of the important things I want to say. Which is why I said we are setting the stage for reflection. We’re about to start with let’s say rebellion, if something is not done and this is the honest truth.

“So whatever anybody close to the president should be telling him, let him hear the real story. Life is difficult. People who ordinarily should not be struggling for food are today struggling for food.

“I believe Asiwaju is a committed democrat and he is a progressive politician. And I believe he will have no difficulty relating with the issues I am raising.

“Chief Bisi Akande has done everything for me. He did not only write the foreword of the book, he has committed himself to physically be present to chair the session. And I know with Chief Bisi Akande chairing the session every leader of the party will respect it.

“The former national chairman, Chief Oyegun has agreed. I am yet to sit down with Comrade Adams. I’m going to sit down with him and I’m confident and very hopeful he will agree to be there.”

Lukman added that some leaders of the party have agreed to attend the event.
