The Acting National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Timi Frank, on Thursday in Abuja, says that he remains the authentic spokesman.
Frank, who is presently at loggerheads with the party’s leadership, was reacting to the APC Zonal Congress meeting that nominated former Minister of Sports, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, as the party`s spokesperson to replace its former National Publicity Secretary Alhaji Lai Mohammad.
He said that though he was not against Abdullahi’s nomination, the process to become an authentic spokesman should be followed.
He said, “I want to congratulate Bolaji Abdullahi for his nomination.
“But he should know that this matter is still in court and until the court says otherwise, I am still the authentic acting National Publicity Secretary of the 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.”
He added that he would challenge the party`s leadership if the party goes against the court order.
He maintained that it was only a national convention that could produce a national officer according to the party`s constitution.
