The embattled deputy national publicity secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Timi Frank, has said that the ruling party may not escape paying the price of alleged incompetency of its national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun in 2019.
He equally lambasted Odigie-Oyegun for recently claiming that the exit of Atiku will not affect the APC in anyway.
Frank who lambasted Oyegun and blamed his “incompetency” as contributing to the reason the former vice president left the party, wondered how the APC national chairman who benefitted so much from Atiku, would make such comment about his exit.
He said in a statement he released in response to Oyegun’s comment, that “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.”
