- Franks lauds Adebanjo for his courage.
- Says there is no governance under President Buhari.
Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Timi Frank, has said that President Muhamamdu Buhari should rather be seen as “an illegal President-elect” until the supreme court says otherwise.
Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is contesting the outcome of the poll that returned Buhari for a second term in office.
While backing the decision of the leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, who said that President Buhari should not be recognised as President-elect. noted that Pa Adebanjo had expressed optimism that Abubakar would reclaim his mandate at the court.
Commending the elder statesman for his courage in speaking truth to power, Franks added that no matter how long it takes, the will of people would surely prevail.
He also stated that it is unfortunate that Nigeria has very few men like Pa Adebanjo, who can boldly say it as it is. Even at their very old age, hypocrisy is still a meal ticket for so many, being the reason illegality reigns supreme in Nigeria.
“Under the watch of Buhari, there is no governance and that is why his appointees are taking advantage of his incompetence to loot public funds. Gen. Buhari has taken the country from bad to worse, and democracy is now getting another meaning under the nose of a failed President,” Frank stated.
Reacting to the security situation across the country, Frank alleged that all the money meant to buy equipment have been stolen by a clique inside APC’s administration.
“Where is the motivation? All the money meant to purchase weapons has been stolen by the APC government. The President cannot sack the tired and long due for retirement Service Chiefs because the secret of his illegal second term is in their (Service Chiefs) hands.
“A caring President cannot abandon the country when the nation is on fire. Gen. Buhari does not care and that is why he chose to travel for a private matter when his subjects are dying in large numbers to banditry, kidnapping and hunger.”
Speaking on the economy, Frank said the country is now back to recession, adding that unemployment has hit the roof with 33.5% of the total population practically begging for daily bread.
He added that the APC government has run out of ideas on how to take the people out of poverty.
