- Comrade Timi Frank has asked the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to focus on governance
- The former deputy national publicity secretary of the APC said the ruling party is distracting the nation with its concern in the leadership dispute in the National Assembly
- Comrade is an ally of the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki
Comrade Timi Frank has called on Nigerians to compel the leadership of the APC to face governance instead of distracting the nation with issue of National Assembly.
The ex-APC chieftain made the call in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Thursday, August 16.
He called on Nigerians to open their eyes and not fall for the blackmail from the ruling party “because the campaigners of Senator Saraki's removal could not fault him (Saraki) on his primary duties as Senate President, especially in the area of legislation.”
He said the APC has suddenly shifted the blame game from former President Goodluck Jonathan which the party blamed for three years to Senate President Bukola Saraki.
He chided the APC, saying the affairs of National Assembly is a prerogative of elected members of the National Assembly alone.
“Therefore, commanding them to sack their leaders is not a business of national chairman of any political party,” he added.
Part of the statement read: “For good three years, APC was busy blaming former President Goodluck Jonathan for all its failures but it seems the last one year has been dedicated to blame Saraki for the same reason.
“Nigerians must wake up. We must not allow this unnecessary diversionary tactics. APC should tell Nigerians why it is difficult to rescue the remaining Chibok and Dapchi School girls, why insecurity is getting worse, why are people loosing job daily, why is it hard for many Nigerians to put food on their table daily?”
On the issue of corruption, Frank challenged APC government to probe the activities of its cabinet members in the last three years to know the level of corruption associated with the current administration.
“Why is it difficult for the presidency to speak or allow some of the cabinet members who are having one corruption allegation or the other hanging on their necks to be probed?
“Some appointees of this government have been allegedly named in certificate scandals and the presidency is not bothered. White papers in various states have indicted some others but the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari has decided to look the other way.
“I believe that Nigerians will judge right in the coming 2019 elections. The government of propaganda and deceit will be sent parking because all their lies are no longer hidden to the public,” he stated.

Comrade Frank had earlier dismissed insinuations that the sacked Director General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, was indirectly working for Saraki.
He asked the public to dismiss what he described as “misinformation and a cheap blackmail,” suggesting Saraki has close ties with Daura.
He, however, called on Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to investigate the circumstances that led to the invasion of the federal legislative building by masked DSS operatives.
