APC Crisis: Deputy spokesperson joins Tinubu, says Oyegun must go

oyegun-vs-tinubu

Supporting an earlier statement by a former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Timi Frank, has issued a 14-day notice to John Oyegun, the chairman of the party, to resign.

Mr. Frank said Mr. Tinubu’s explosive statement Sunday night corroborated earlier grievances he had raised against Mr. Oyegun.

He said Mr. Tinubu’s statement also gave him another launch pad to demand the chairman’s ouster.

“The founding father of our party, the national leader of our party has concurred to my earlier call that Oyegun should resign as the national chairman. That should let you know that I foresaw what they didn’t see,” Mr. Frank said. “I am giving Oyegun 14 days from today to convene a NEC meeting to do so.

“I have started mobilising NEC members to ensure that the APC leadership is made to do the right thing and summon a NEC meeting.”

Mr. Frank said Mr. Oyegun had allegedly failed to show leadership in every crisis the party has faced since its formation three years ago.

“As far as I am aware, APC under Oyegun has not been able to resolve one crisis in this party.

“Today now it is Tinubu that is shouting, I can bet you, more leaders will still speak out but if we don’t do anything to for this man to go.

“So, I want to throw my weight behind the call by Tinubu for the national chairman to resign because it has been my earlier position and I still stand by it,” Mr. Frank said.

Mr. Tinubu had cited alleged betrayal of trust and manipulation of Ondo State APC primary results as grounds for demanding Mr. Oyegun’s resignation.

Mr. Oyegun did not respond to PREMIUM TIMES’ calls for comment Monday night.

    I think Oyegun made the biggest mistake of his age! I don’t want to believe the script he acted was his!! He owes many apologies.

    OYEGUN MADE THE MISTAKE , HE SHOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS TO ONDO PEOPLE, DELEGATES NAMES WERE OMMITTED FROM LIST, PANEL RECOMMENDED ANOTHER PRIMARY, NEC MEETING VOTED FOR ANOTHER PRIMARY BUT OYEGUN OVERULE NEC MEETING RECCOMENDATION. HERE IS THE IMPLICATION FOR THE PARTY CALLED THEMSELVE APC. IF I CAN NOT GET JUSTICE FROM THE PARTY I BELONG, IT OBVIOUS NIGERIAN CAN NOT GET JUSTICE FROM THE SAME PARTY AT HELM OF AFFAIRS. IT SHOW CLEARLY OYEGUN AND THE APC LEADERSHIP ARE NOT FIT TO RULE THE COUNTRY. JUST A PRIMARY ELECTION IN A STATE , APC COULD NOT GET IT RIGHT , HERE YOU ARE CALLING THE PARTY A PROGRESSIVE PARTY. WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE WHEN JUSTICE CAN NOT BE SERVED TO YOUR MEMBER. DOGARA IS RUNNING AFTER JIBRIN, SARAKI MANIPULATED STANDING RULES, DINO MALAYE TURNED SENATE TO HOUSE OF TUG AND HOOLI. SAME APC UNDER N OLD MAN CALLED OYEGUN, NO CONTROL OVER YOUR PARTY, AND YOU SIT DOWN CALL THE PARTY PROGRESSIVE. PROGRESSIVE MY FOOT
