Crack in the walls as Comrade Timi Frank told APC party Chairman to step down

Undercurrents of disaffection previously uspected to be existing in the ruling APC may be coming to the surface, especially among members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) as Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Comrade Timi Frank has called on the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie- Oyegun to resign from his position.

Frank lamented that the crisis in the National Assembly happened because Chief Oyegun did not consult widely before embarking on the mock election which he said ridiculed the party, adding that the chairman’s action suggested that he acted under undue pressure to conduct the mock elections as admitted by him.

He was therefore of the opinion that if the ‎APC was to rid itself of the mistakes of the PDP, it needed a chairman that would insulate himself from undue pressure, no matter where such pressure emanates from.

But in a swift reaction the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said that Nigerians should ignore his deputy, Comrade Timi Frank in his called for the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Chief John Oyegun for gross incompetence.

It will be recalled that Frank also took a swipe at his immediate boss over comments credited to him (Mohammed) that president Moahmmadu Buhari is not the leader of the party.

But reacting to Frank, Mohammed said that Nigerians should not take his deputy seriously.

“Just ignore him. I said it in the context that Buhari is the leader of the whole of Nigeria, not just of my party. That’s why I said I don’t want to react to Timi Frank. I don’t even want to answer him at all”, Mohammed said.
