Suspended APC Spokesman, Timi Frank, Reacts
It was previously reported that the Ondo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC), has commended the move by APC's National Chairman, John Oyegun, on the suspension of the National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank.
Frank has come out to attack Oyegun, saying it is an attempt to get rid of him.
It is very clear that there is desperate move by my national chairman and his cohorts to get rid of me to enable them appoint an acting publicity secretary that will be a puppet, that will be committed and loyal to them but not to the party.
There is a procedure to suspend me. It is very clear. First of all, I’m not a zonal officer of this party. I’m a national officer of this party. So, I see no reason why the zonal chairman will be the one to set up a committee that belongs to his friends and brothers.
And I made it clear as soon as it was set up that I won’t attend to any committee that is not set up by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party. It is only the NEC that can set up a committee to suspend me.
It is because I love this party, that is why I want it rescued. This party needs help. Otherwise, if this party continues like this, we would suffer in 2019. We can only win 2019 (elections) when we are united, not a divided house. And if the President wants to appreciate the support of Oyegun, the president has so many ways to compensate him.
I will appeal to the president, if it’s possible, to appoint Oyegun as an ambassador, being a former career civil servant, he will do better as an ambassador not as national chairman.
