FROM ROMANUS UGWU, ABUJA
BARELY one week after the intervention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors in the crisis rocking the National Assembly, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Comrade Timi Frank, has called for the resignation of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC), insisting that they have failed in the management of the rift.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja yesterday, Timi Frank argued that the silence and the inability of the party leadership to resolve any of the crises rocking the party is a mark of failure, adding that NEC has reduced itself to only conducting primaries.
His words: “The purpose of this address is to express disappointment in the silence of our party APC over the crisis rocking the National Assembly particularly the House of Representatives.
“It is disheartening to note that the party has not waded in to resolve the crisis involving two members of the party at the House of Representatives. The issue rocking the National Assembly has become embarrassing to our party and to Nigerians. This is not a personal attack on the leadership of the party. The silence of my party all the time is not good for democracy. I can tell you clearly, nobody will want to talk, I believe it is my duty as the Acting Publicity Secretary of the APC to speak either on my own capacity to intervene.
“This is not the first time our party is keeping quiet on issues affecting individual members of the party. We’ve not been able to resolve the crisis involving our members in the Senate.
