South-South leaders of the All progressives Congress have lambasted the party’s former deputy national publicity secretary, Timi Frank, describing him as a disgrace.
They stated, that “Timi Frank is a disgrace to the South-South. He lacks home training.
The leaders’ attack on Frank was in response to his statement that the APC national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, should have resigned following the party’s loss of Osun West senatorial bye-election last Saturday.
Frank had in reaction to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Adeleke Ademola emergence as the winner of the election said, “By now after our defeat in Osun, I expect Chief Oyegun to have resigned, but unfortunately, I know he isn’t going to resign. But the best thing for anybody to do after losing this kind of election, just a bye-election is to resign.”
However, responding to Frank’s position in a statement entitled “Personality and hard-earned integrity of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun”, the leaders under the aegis of South-South Front, described the APC leader as a role model and a suave politician.
They said, “Chief John Odigie-Oyegun is a visionary leader and a bridge builder. His thorough leadership style has inspired Nigerians.
“We wonder when Timi Frank and his sponsors will start appreciating the works of a good man. Is it when he is dead?”
In the statement signed by the chairman of South-South Front, Chief John Harry, the group further eulogised Odigie-Oyegun for promoting unity and protecting the interests of the party members.
Describing Frank’s claim that the APC may not win in 2019 as a pessimistic way of looking at issues, the leaders said the “APC will win in Osun, Ekiti and Anambra states.”
