• Chieftain dismisses allegation

Barely 24 hours after the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) inaugurated its constitution review committee, the party’s embattled Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank, has faulted the exercise, alleging that it was aimed at easing out some powerful individuals.

In a statement yesterday in Abuja, Frank, who is on a technical suspension, claimed that the national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, was “vigorously working to ensure that he pushes out some prominent members of the party.” He warned that the move was capable of exacerbating the seeming crisis in the party.

According to Frank, the targets include the political grouping’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu “and so many others who have spoken against his leadership style which is now more of a dictator.”

Contacted, the National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, declined comments but a top party source dismissed the allegation, saying Frank was playing his usual game.

The source, who did not want to be named, said it was not possible for anybody to amend the constitution of a political party just to get at an individual.

His words: “Does he have any evidence to prove that some people have been penciled down to be pushed away from the party? If he does not have, you guys in the media should avoid giving him such attention.”

    The amendment should encourage popular participation at all levels of political experiences so that the harmony noticeable in other democracies can begin to show.

    The ondo experience must never be allowed to surface in the internal democracy of the party. All official positions must have their do’s and don’ts.

    The position of National leader must be explained to check abuses. Power must carry with it authority so that members could understand what some vague decorations connote. The recent rumour on the health of our very dear PRESIDENT must be investigated to be certain the the rumour did not come from within because a certain leader of national status has promised his mentees to unbundle the party.

    Others:
    1: No member should take the party to court without exhausing the internal resolution mechanism available within.

    2: Members should not form a pressure group alien to the party such like Yoruba Patrotic forum recently floated to embarrass the people occupying political offices .

    3: Members must not overstep like they did working against the party in some elections.
    Rude members like Rauf , Bola, Timi and Ilori should be given red flags

    I however wish the party well.
