SAN FRANCISCO, July 29, (THEWILL) – The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Timi Frank on Friday called on the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee, NWC, to resign over its inability to stave off the wave of Crisis afflicting the Party.
While describing the ongoing budget-padding crisis in the House of Representatives as “highly embarrassing” to the party and the federal government, Frank told newsmen in Abuja that the NWC should resign their position if they can no longer steer the ship of the party.
He maintained that it is unfortunate that the crisis in the senate has not been resolved, adding that in Kano, Kogi, Bayelsa and several other states, the situation is not any different.
The party official averred that the leadership of the party should by now have summoned the parties to the dispute with a view to resolving the crisis.
His words, “If the NWC of the party cannot do it, I call on the leaders of the party to wade in. By now, I expected that we would have summoned the parties involved in the dispute to hear their side and make the necessary interventions. That is when the party knows its job but as it is I do not know whether the party enjoys thriving in crisis.
“The situation in the House of Representatives is not just embarrassing to the house but to the party including the president, who of course I want to succeed in his determination to make life worth living for Nigerians,” he said.
While insisting that the leadership of the party should resign if they cannot mitigate the series of crisis confronting the party, Frank clarified that, “this is not a personal attack on Oyegun or the leadership of the party but this is the reality.”
