A former deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has fingered some governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the problems with their party.
Frank pointed at the governors’ actions and lobbying to be and remain in the good books of President Muhammadu Buhari as counter-production.
He wondered at why the Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu (PDP) would travel to London alongside President Buhari just after his Imo state counterpart, Emeka Ihedioha, was removed as governor.
He berated Ikpeazu for misisng the party’s NEC meeting for a chance to be pictured “smiling and grinning from ear to ear like a child that just tasted chocolate for the first time in his life”.
He said: “Instead of telling APC the truth, Ikpeazu is fraternizing with them the same day the PDP was having its NEC meeting, He abandoned the meeting and flew with Buhari to London, as that is more important to him than attending PDP meeting, the party that gave him a platform to become governor.
“The wicked flee when no man pursueth, no amount of fraternizing with Buhari and the APC can save any looting governor when the day of reckoning comes.
“Nigerians are helpless today at the hands of APC because some PDP governors have compromised for their selfish interest but they should remember that they are not God, only God knows how all these will pan out tomorrow.”
He urged other PDP governors to show their competence by emulating Governor Wike so that posterity will judge them well.
Frank said: “It is better for these governors to decamp to APC so Nigerians and the world can see them for who they truly are, after all once you decamp to APC; all your sins (Looting and corruption) are forgiven.
“Nigerians should observe that apart from Governor Wike and Governor Ortom, no other PDP governor dares to criticize Buhari and even make any statement about national issues. If there is any governor that Buhari and the APC would have loved to remove, it is Governor Wike; this is because he is not PDP by the day and APC by night, which is the reason why he has the support of his people and despite all the persecution by the federal government, he still stands tall.”
“Some PDP governors are the problem of Nigeria, some of them go to the extent of lobbying the cabal to travel out with the President so as to be on his good books, they are selfish, corrupt, over ambitious and shameless.
“Some of them betrayed the PDP during the last presidential election, and gave the APC 25% in their states in return for not being prosecuted after they leave office and to win their 2nd term.”
Frank went on to disclose that a sitting PDP governor recently said:
“If you say you dey there (APC), know I am already there. If you go to APC, I am an APC member. If you go to PDP, I am there”, what did the PDP as a party say or do? The PDP as a party could not caution or penalize him and now they want to protest?
