APC: I am still the party’s spokesman – Timi Franks says

APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary - Timi Frank

Frank argued that the APC constitution states that a national officer can only be appointed at a national convention.

The embattled All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank has insisted that he is still the spokesman of the ruling party.

This is coming on the heels of the appointment of Bolaji Abdullahi, an ex- minister of youth and sports, as the APC Publicity Secretary.

Frank has been at loggerheads with the ruling party’s National Chairman, John Odigie Oyegun, who he has described severally as incompetent.

According to Cable News, Frank argued that the APC constitution states that a national officer can only be appointed at a national convention.

He said “I want to congratulate Bolaji Abdullahi for his nomination but he should  know that this matter is still in court and until the court say otherwise I am still the authentic acting national publicity secretary of APC,” the statement read.

“I will wait patiently for the party leadership to convene a national convention and ratify Bolaji’s nomination as the substantive national publicity Secretary. But until then, I, Timi Frank, remain acting publicity secretary of APC.

“It must be made clear to the plotters of this action that it is only national convention that can produce a national officer according to our party constitution while any other convention like the one north central just held can not do that.

“I will also make it clear that if they go ahead against the court order, that will amount to Contempt of the Court, which I will challenge in the court of law.”
