The embattled All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank has waded into the war of words between Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai and ex-VP, Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku in an interview, alleged that Governor El-Rufai offered him shares of Transcorp, which he turned down.

The Kaduna Governor immediately issued a statement calling the former Vice President a liar and corrupt man.

Speaking on the issue between the two APC big shots, Frank slammed El-Rufai, and called him an ingrate.

According to Daily Post, the APC spokesman said Atiku helped influence the appointment of El-Rufai into the Bureau for Public Enterprise (BPE).

Frank also called the Kaduna Governor a ‘perpetual betrayer’, adding that he always betrays those who have helped him rise in politics.

The APC spokesman also warned President Buhari to be careful of El-Rufai.

He said “El-Rufai’s latest outburst is not surprising because of his antecedent of betraying all his known benefactors both in politics and in private life.

“It is on record that the likes of former President Olusegun Obasanjo will not be surprised because he has once betrayed Baba. Former President Goodluck Jonathan, who brought out El-rufai from exile can’t forget in a hurry how this same man betrayed him. It is a matter of time El-Rufai will also betray President Buhari once the president no longer in power.

“The huge task of governance, which El-Rufai has practically failed woefully in Kaduna, is supposed to be paramount to him instead of deploying his strongest power against Turaki Adamawa, who is far above the governor in all levels.

“Just two days ago, more than 45 innocent citizens of Kaduna lost their lives; immediately El-Rufai launched a bill board in Southern Kaduna apologising for his maladministration.”

Frank was suspended by the APC disciplinary committee for alleged anti-party activities.

Reports say Frank has sued the leadership of the APC for suspending him.

Recently, youths from 19 Northern states called on the leadership of the APC to reverse Timi Frank's suspension.
