Impunity worse in APC, an end will come to it so soon, Timi Frank predicts



ALLEGED ETHNIC CLEANSING: this can lead to the end of Nigeria, APC chieftain tells UN

Ahead 2019 general elections, embattled Deputy Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has bemoaned the impunity in the party predicting that an end will come to it should it fail to change its current ways of doing things.

Frank, who was reacting to the recent defection of former Vice President Abubakar Atiku from APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a statement on Monday, noted that some of them who left the former ruling party have now realised that the ruling APC was worse than the PDP.

“The lack of internal democracy, disregard for the party’s constitution, irregular schedule of meetings, inability to conduct a convention, the absence of a Board of Trustees and arrogance of the party leadership will bring about the impending doom.

“Nigerians will remember that I predicted what is happening and I am still saying that if this party continues in this direction, an end will come to it so soon. Though the truth is bitter, but I will continue to sacrifice myself in speaking the truth because I know I am speaking the minds of a lot of members who cannot speak out,” Frank said.

According to Frank, those benefiting from the “flagrant disregard” for the constitution of the party, “impunity and silence of some leaders are responsible for the misfortune befalling the APC.”

He said, “Nigerians should note one very interesting thing in the politics of Nigeria today; in the past, it used to be that people decamp or leave the party that has lost election or that is in opposition to the party that is ruling. But, here we are today, people are moving from the ruling party to the party in opposition.

“It is saddening but interesting the way politics is played out in Nigeria because here we are, people leaving the comfort zone of government and the corridors of power to the opposition party and this should signal danger to those leading the ruling party.

“It was high time APC realised that politics is about numbers, every youth, man or woman is important. The kind of arrogance going on in the party led some of us out of PDP in those days, but we have now realized that it is even worse in the APC.”

Frank was last year suspended as the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC over alleged attacks on the party national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and other alleged anti-party activities.
