Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Comrade, APC, Timi Frank has advised an official of the Lagos APC chapter, Joe Igbokwe, to stop his verbal attack against former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.Igbokwe had told an online media that Atiku ’cannot be Nigeria President’,attributing his reason to corruption.
In a statement on Thursday in Abuja, Frank reminded Igbokwe that the media cannot be an alternative court to try and convict perceived political opponents.
Frank dared the APC Lagos spokesman to present to the world if he has any evidence against the Waziri Adamawa or “keep silent forever”.
“Has Igbokwe lost the address to the EFCC office in Lagos or Abuja? What stopped him from going there with all the evidence to convict Atiku?
”He would have achieved more maximum publicity by furnishing the EFCC with the evidence of corruption against the former Vice President”, Frank said.
He insisted that Igbokwe’s “latest lazy propaganda is not original; if enemies repeat falsehoods a million times, it will never be the substitute for evidence of corruption against Atiku and indeed any other.
”Rabbies infected political Rottweilers like Igbokwe should ordinarily be ashamed of their dirty roles in politics and for bringing our democracy into ridicule.
”The greatest tragedy is for a politician to forget his origin and insult his roots because of political opportunism, which has become his area of competence.
”Politicians that seek survival by being mercenaries deserve more pity than condemnation because honour and principles mean nothing to them in this world.
“God couldn’t have been kinder to Atiku Abubakar. He has survived more vicious political enemies before, and the latest Joe Igbokwe wouldn’t make any difference.”
