A former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of destroying “all democratic institutions like National Assembly, Judiciary and others built by former leaders”

The former deputy spokesman of the governing APC stated this in a statement on Thursday in response to the Wednesday Supreme Court dismissal of the appeal by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar challenging Buhari’s victory at the 2019 presidential election.

Frank faulted the ruling and claimed that what happened at the Supreme Court on Wednesday was a well-scripted drama.

The statement read in part: “It was a well-scripted drama. The evil agenda was perfected before General Buhari left the country in pretence. It was collaboration between the presidency and the Supreme Court. Most Nigerians were shock at the speed at which the panel dismissed the case because the judgment came as a surprise to them.

“Nigerians will recall that I exposed the handpicked names of the panel members two days before Justice Tanko made it public. But surprisingly and shamelessly, the anti-democratic forces, despite the exposure still went ahead with the handpicked list. They have sold their consciences to the devil.

“The current apex court has taken the country far backward in the justice administration and it will take the mercy of God for all the actors in this sham to escape the hottest part of hell.

“This is a judgement that posterity will never forgive all those who sat on it and allowed themselves to be compromised. All those who allowed themselves to be used shall fully received their reward.

“It will be on record that certain Justices had the opportunity to right the wrong but decided otherwise.

“It is not all about Atiku Abubakar, he cannot go hungry. It is about the future of young Nigerians. If Nigerians will continue to seat back and refuse to fight for their rights, the obvious hunger, poverty, insecurity, unemployment, incompetence hands in government and all other problems facing the country will not voluntarily disappear, he said.

While he called on Nigerians to stop folding their arms in the face of injustice, he added that “all democratic institutions like National Assembly, Judiciary and others built by former leaders have been destroyed under the current administration of General Muhammadu Buhari.”
