The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has lent his voice to the call by the party’s National Leader, Bola Tinubu for John Oyegun’s resignation.

Tinubu, on Sunday, September 25, 2016, called for the resignation of the APC Chairman.

The APC National Leader accused Oyegun of committing malpractice during the just concluded Ondo governorship primaries.

Speaking on the incident, Frank said there is need for the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to convene.

He also called on President Buhari to comment on the current crisis threatening to rock the party.

Adding that Buhari’s intervention is needed if the APC wants to make a headway in 2019.

Frank also threatened to lead a protest if Oyegun refuses to call for a NEC meeting in 14 days.

He said “Again, today is another joy for me that truly God has practically vindicated me in my struggle to save my party the APC…It is very clear that I’m one of the first persons that took the bull by the horn to foresee what is happening today in our party. I’m came out earlier on to say that is issues and crisis in this party as at that time I was alone, nobody was knew where I was coming from.

“The founding father of our party, the national leader of our party has concurred to my earlier call that Oyegun should resign as the national chairman. That should let you know that I foresaw what they didn’t see.

“Today the BoT is not in place and an elders council, tell me today if I have issue where would I run to? Do I run to an NWC where Oyegun will preside over to drop my case that will not be answered? The answer is no. If you have a BoT or an elders council you can take your case there. We cannot run the party as a one-man show. Let me tell a lot of my colleagues are complaining, a lot even in the NWC.”

Timi Frank, had earlier told the APC leadership not to give Nigerians false hope.
