The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Timi Frank, has said that he remains the authentic spokesperson of the party until a Court says otherwise.

The North Central Zone of the party had on Thursday nominated a former Sports Minister, Bolaji Abdullahi, to replace Lai Mohammed as National Publicity Secretary.

Mr. Mohammed is now the Minister of Information.

Mr. Frank said in a statement that he was not against Mr. Abdullahi as a person but that “the process to become an authentic spokesman should be followed”.

“I want to congratulate Bolaji Abdullahi for his nomination but he should know that this matter is still in court and until the court says otherwise, I am still the authentic acting National Publicity Secretary of APC,” he said.

“I will wait patiently for the party leadership to convene a national convention and ratify Bolaji’s nomination as the substantive National Publicity Secretary, but until then Timi Frank remains acting Publicity Secretary of APC.

“It must be made clear to the plotters of this action that it is only national convention that can produce a national officer according to our party constitution while any other convention like the one the North central just held cannot do that.

“I will also make it clear that if they go ahead against the court order, that will amount to contempt of the Court which I will challenge in the Court of law,” he said.

        Asiwaju remain one of the leaders of APC. Forget what people say about him and PMB. The party is united to the surprise of those who want the party to fall apart.
