All Progressives Congress (APC) spokesman, Timi Frank has said that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Tony Anenih lacks the moral right to talk about politics in the country.

Frank made the comments after Anenih said, on Saturday, November 26, that he stopped former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar from becoming president.

Anenih wrote about Atiku in his book titled, ‘My Life and Nigerian Politics’ which was launched on Saturday.

Frank made his comments in a statement released on Sunday, November 27.

The statement reads:

“It is high time Chief Anenih told the world the kind of legacy he is leaving behind in all his years in politics. Baba Anenih’s desperation to remain in the corridors of power made him force former Goodluck Jonathan to run again in 2015 when he knew he [Jonathan] couldn’t win.”

“Chief Tony Anenih has lost the moral right to talk about former Vice President Atiku Abubakar or any other Nigerian for that matter seeing that he is one of the reasons Nigeria and especially the Niger Delta region is where we are today.

“What has Anenih done for the Niger Delta where he comes from? Instead of using his position to help the Niger delta and Nigeria at large to find lasting solutions to its numerous challenges, he chose to support third term agenda.

“Under his watch as Minister of Works, N300bn disappeared into thin air. As NPA chairman, what positive contribution did he make for the benefit of Nigeria? Even in the South-South where Anenih comes from, Atiku a Northerner has touched people’s lives positively in terms of job employment more than Anenih will ever do in his life time.

“Anenih is not called Mr. fixer for no reason, he helped put Nigeria and Nigerians in the fix we find ourselves today.”

Anenih also said that he was jailed by President Muhammadu Buhari in 1984 because he was rich.
