Comrade Timi Frank, the embattled Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), says that Senate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the APC, who was recently appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari to reconcile aggrieved members of the party is not a magician to resolve the myriad of problems in the APC.
According to Frank, Tinubu is no doubt the right person for the task, but he noted that it was already late and nothing would come out of it before 2019 general elections.
“Although some people might not like this truth, I would continue to say it,” Frank said.
He however congratulated the APC National Leader, and prayed God grant him needed wisdom to effectively carryout the assignment, adding that the party’s National Working Committee must support Tinubu’s effort to reposition the party.
“If they had listened to me much earlier when I was the only voice in the wilderness and appointed someone like this same Tinubu a year ago, may be the likes of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar wouldn’t have left the ruling party.
“It is a glaring thing that all what Tinubu is expected to repair now were caused by the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun’s, indecision, which I loudly spoke about. When I demanded for his resignation, some people felt I was being sponsored. But thank God that today I have been vindicated because all eyes can see clearly what Chief Odigie-Oyegun’s style of leadership has done to the ruling party. At this level, if care is not taken, APC might soon become history.
“I don’t know how the national leader will go about this reconciliation task. But I pray that God will give him the necessary wisdom. To be frank, I don’t know how he will succeed in reconciling the likes of Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and Governor Umar Ganduje in Kano, Senator Shehu Sani and Governor Nasir el-Rufai in Kaduna, Speaker Yakubu Dogara and Governor Mohammed Abubakar in Bauchi, Rotimi Amaechi and Sen.
