Timi Frank, former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Wednesday faulted the tenure extension of the national working committee of the party led by John Oyegun.
Frank said extending Oyegun’s tenure has shown that “APC is an undemocratic party,” adding that the party won’t go anywhere in 2019.
In a statement he signed, the former spokesperson said the elongation of Oyegun’s tenure also shows that President Muhammadu Buhari does not believe in the reconciliation effort of the party’s national leader, Bola Tinubu.
According to Frank,“I am personally disappointed with the tenure extension of Chief John Oyegun led leadership. This has clearly shown that APC is an undemocratic party. A party which has been in existence for three years but has never obeyed its own constitution.
“I challenged anybody to tell me which part of the APC constitution has been religiously obeyed in the past? This is has shown again the difference between PDP and APC, but I know that the former is better.
“I will not relent in speaking the truth which I’m known for. This decision is against the wish of the majority but for the oppressors within the party.
“Even when the presidency had appointed the national leader of APC to reconcile all the aggrieved members, the tenure elongation clearly show that the party is going nowhere beyond 2019 because if they didn’t believe in Tinubu’s reconciliatory panel why did they set up at all.
“How can you keep a man that lacks capacity to lead a governing political party for another twelve months? This has shown that those who took such decision are selfish and do not mean well for APC.
“Some of us that came from PDP have not been treated well, even the positions being held today by the Senate President Bukola Saraki and speaker Yakubu Dogara were forcefully taken.
“Time will tell very soon when some of us will have to take decision against some of these anti-democratic tendencies of some people in APC.”
