The deputy national publicity secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has said the party’s national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, is no longer in control of the party. Frank spoke on Channels Television’s Sunrise on Wednesday.
He said the APC currently lacked a competent leadership that could rally all members into a unified front and proffer lasting solutions to the internal wrangling dogging it, adding that the party’s national chairman is a mere front for certain powerful members of the party, who he claimed were in control.
“As far as I am concerned, he is not in control,” Frank said. “He’s being controlled by some forces.”
He continued: “But we cannot continue to have a national chairman that is being controlled by people. We need a national chairman that can pull us together. We need a national chairman that can unify this party.”
He said the disunity in the ruling party was affecting President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign against corruption. “The party, as at today, is not united; there is an internal crisis disturbing us,” Frank said. “I don’t think as a party we are in a better state to truly support the President in the fight against corruption.” Read more
