The Acting National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Timi Frank, said that he is still the authentic spokesman of the party and not former Sports Minister Bolaji Abdullahi.
A statement he signed in Abuja on Thursday while reacting to the APC Zonal Congress that nominated Abdullahi to replace former National Publicity Secretary and now Minister of Information Alhaji Lay Mohammad, Frank declared that he is no against Bolaji as a person but “the process to become an authentic spokesman should be followed.”
“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.
“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 cleared 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.
