Timi Frank dumps APC

Comrade Timi Frank

The immediate past Deputy National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has finally dumped the party.

In a statement on Friday, August 3, 2018, Frank described the APC as a “failed project”.
Frank who has been a critic of the Muhammadu Buhari-led government assured his supporters of his continued actions in defence of Nigeria’s democracy.The statement reads:
“I was one of the early joiners from the PDP, having been dissatisfied by the unsustainable trajectory of the last administration which I felt no longer possessed the political will to make Nigeria and her democracy reflect the lofty dreams of its founding fathers which among others was to unleash the untapped potentials of the Nigerian citizenry, especially her vibrant youth population ever eager to take their place in the economic and socio-political advancement of the country.
“My decision to join the APC then was based on its promise that things were going to change for the better. Regrettably however, rather than lead the country with egalitarian principles that would under-guide the nations quest for development and progress in the mould of her counterparts in the international community, the country has taken a deep plunge backwards under the leadership of the APC, with high level of tyranny, victimization, harassment, and political desperation, we thought had been consigned to the era of military dictatorship in the country, again rearing its odious head. Although, I am a direct victim of injustice and intolerance in the party but I continued to speak out because I have zero tolerance for injustice anywhere.
“While I consider the APC as a failed project, I am ready again to stoop and contribute my humble quota to the progress and development of this country by joining hands with progressive forces to rescue it from collapse, poverty, corruption, tyranny, ignominy and undemocratic leadership. “Let it be clear that I am stepping aside from the APC to be the voice for the majority of voiceless Nigerians who daily suffer the bad policies and highhandedness of this administration. I want to continue my fight to ensure a better Nigeria, where injustice, corruption, killings and bloodletting will cease to exist.

“I want to make it unequivocally clear that I am returning to continue my struggle against forces who are bent on ruining the economy and governance of this country through lack of vision, ineptitude, wickedness, and outright disregard for the welfare and security of the ordinary Nigerian. This I hope to do until Nigeria is rid of injustice, intimidation, political persecution, criminalization of all opponents of the ruling party, and open attacks using the nation’s security agencies. Nigerians need a voice to speak for them in this evil days and I want to be that voice."
Frank also threw a sub at the APC chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“Besides, I want to put on record my deep respect for the former Governor of Edo State and National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, especially during the days of his comradeship where he fought and got a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers under the Obasanjo administration.
“However, it is most unfortunate that Oshiomhole who was once a voice for the oppressed workers and masses in the country is today serving the worst party in the history of Nigeria. Even though my respected senior colleague in the struggle has chosen to turn a blind eye to the pathetic plight of the Nigerian workers, including government’s refusal to accede to their request for a new minimum wage in the last three years, I will continue to speak for the voiceless in this country,” he declared.
Frank had cautioned the APC against some actions that would lead to the breakup of the party
