…Lauds Obasanjo, defends Oyedepo, Gumi, others
Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Timi Frank, has commended former President Olusegun Obasanjo for making peace with his former Vice and the presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Frank, who also defended the presence of some religious leaders at the peace meeting in Abeokuta, said all the leaders of note across the country, irrespective of political and religious affiliation, have now accepted the candidacy of Atiku Abubakar as a consensus President to be.
In a statement signed in Abuja on Friday, the former APC spokesman said history will never forget those leaders who came together to rescue the nation from the current incompetent handlers.
Frank believes President Buhari’s government of nepotism, abuse of rule of law, incompetence, hunger, killings, poverty and joblessness has given credibility to Atiku’s candidacy as the only viable option for Nigerians capable to right the wrong.This yearning is premised on Atiku’s antecedents both in his private and public life.
While reacting to “a non event” comment made by the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organization on Atiku’s endorsement, Frank said: “Buhari and his team should not worry about Nigerian voters because they know what they want and I want to assure you that come 2019, President Buhari will lose even at Presidential Villa polling unit.
“If it is a non-event for buhari and his APC government, it is a historic event for Nigerians. APC cannot fool Nigerians anymore because we know the truth.
“Nigerians now know that Buhari’s acclaimed integrity has not helped them neither has it put food on their table . His integrity did not stop Fulani herdsmen from killing, and has not ameliorated the high cost of businesses and the geometrical rise in the price of dollars. When the D-day comes, voters will let Buhari and his team know if they still want them or not. They should not cry for now,” he said.
While warning that 2019 general elections is not one the ruling party can rig like what happened in Ekiti and Osun states recently, Frank added that the ineptitude of the Buhari administration is the highest in the history of Nigeria.
He also urged the APC to rather campaign on issues if the party has anything to offer, instead of attacking Atiku,his supporters or whoever endorses him.Frank stated;such act can’t get President Buhari anywhere but rather keep making PDP presidential candidate more popular and stronger on a daily basis.
