APC youths urge Oyegun to reinstate Frank as party’s spokesman

14 January 2016, 18:03

Abuja - As the controversy over who should speak for the All Progressives Congress (APC) lingers, a youth group in the party has asked the party’s National Chairman, John Odigie Oyegun to recognise the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank as the party's acting spokesman, reports Daily Trust.

The youths under the aegis of Youth for Change (YC) alleged that the APC leadership was breaching the party’s constitution by not appointing Frank as the party’s acting spokesman.

The position of the spokesperson became vacant following the appointment of Lai Mohammed as the Minister of Information in November 2015.

After Mohammed’s exit, Oyegun had said that he and the National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, would be speaking on behalf of the party.

The YC, however, in a statement issued on Wednesday and signed by its leaders, Adamu Mohammed and Daniel Ojolowo threatened to mobilise youths if Frank was not allowed to play his constitutional role.

The members of the group noted that they can no longer continue to fold their arms while the only representative of the youths in APC leadership is denied his constitutional right to assume office as acting National Publicity Secretary.
