The All Progressives Congress, APC has denounced Timi Frank over a recent open letter he issued, where he lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari and apologised to a former Nigerian head of state, Goodluck Jonathan.
In the letter published by DENISAURUS News, Mr Frank, a former deputy publicity secretary of the APC said he “and many others may have misunderstood Jonathan’s silence for weakness and thus pushed harder to malign his person and portray him as a weak leader.
“Having achieved the Change Agenda, it is now crystal clear, that the change we had clamoured for is not the change we got.”
He said: “Today there is hardship everywhere with the price of fuel now N145 per as against the N85 that it was being sold when you assumed office – the over N1.4trillion already paid by your government as fuel subsidy notwithstanding.
“You will agree with me, Mr. President, that a report of this magnitude coming from a foreign government should be a cause for serious concern as it posits that your Anti-Corruption Agenda is merely a hoax.

“Furthermore, your famous slogan of “belonging to everybody and belonging to nobody” has turned out to be a mere Public Relations gimmick, meant to soothe the egos of the spectators that were present at your historic swearing-in-ceremony.”
Responding to Mr Frank’s letter, a spokesperson for the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi said it was done in a “personal capacity and has no bearing on the APC.”
“Our attention has been drawn to a report in which one Timi Frank was addressed as a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“We wish to correct the wrongful designation and remind the general public that Timi Frank has since November 2016 been suspended as a member of the APC following a recommendation of an APC disciplinary committee and subsequent ratification by the party’s south-south zonal executive committee.
“Hence, whatever position Timi Frank holds or canvasses is done in his personal capacity and has no bearing on the APC,” the statement adds.
