Timi Frank ‘attacks’ Oyegunover comment on Atiku’s exitfrom APC

Timi Frank, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress,

APC, Comrade Timi Frank, has berated the party’s

National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun over his recent

comment on the exit of former Vice President, Atiku

Abubakar from the ruling party.

Oyegun had said the exit of Atiku will not affect the APC in


Reacting however, Frank, a former National Publicity

Secretary of the party described Oyegun’s statement as


In a statement he signed, Frank said Oyegun should have

known that he lacked moral right to talk about the former

Vice President because, “his incompetency contributed to

the former vice president leaving the party.”

Wondering how the APC Chairman could compromise his

conscience, Frank insisted that Oyegun is one of the

greatest beneficiaries of Abubakar’s generosity to the

ruling party.

According to him, ”When you eat from a man and come

back to talk evil of the same man, prosperity will definitely

judge in this case. Oyegun is one of the biggest

beneficiaries from Atiku in APC, we expect him to have

little fear of God while talking in public.

“One should have expected our national chairman to focus

on how to rebuild the APC now instead of concentrating

his energy on Atiku Abubakar who is no more with us.

“I hope Chief Oyegun will learn from the history of Alhaji

Bamanga Tukur and the PDP when some of us were

leaving the party. The party later paid the price and if care

is not taken APC too will pay the price of Oyegun’s

incompetency in 2019.

“Our national chairman ought to know that politics is a

game of numbers, so we expect him to take responsibility

for everyone leaving the ruling party to opposition party

under his watch.

“If Oyegun thinks that Atiku’s exit won’t create any

impact, time will tell but I will still advice the party to

relieve Chief Oyegun of his office before he anger more

people to leave the APC.

“Atiku actually left APC because of such national

chairman who could not ensure internal democracy.

Under Chief Oyegun, aspirants alleged that primary

elections were won by higher bidders, party constitution

suspended, display of impunity were the order of the day,

inability to put BoT in place, lack of capacity to organise

convention and other necessary meetings. So, Nigerians

will expect our chairman to tell the world the value he has

added to the ruling party?

“This is a national chairman who has never won election

for APC even in his ward, how can he challenge a former

vice president of Nigeria who has added values to

democracy and even to the ruling party before he left.”
