A pro-Buhari group has condemned the attack on a former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Timi Frank, on President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Buhari Phenomenal Leadership Centre said Timi Frank and his gang of detractors should desist from what it termed as “their shameful antics” by comparing the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration with the present.
The Director of Media and Strategy of the BPLC, Akindele Aremu, said the apology called for by Frank should come Jonathan under whose administration Nigeria almost went into extinction.
Aremu said while Mr. Timi Frank is free to express himself as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution, decorum must not be sacrificed at the altar of self-aggrandizement.
He said Nigerians voted en masse for President Buhari in 2015 due to the near collapse of governance in the country and the spate of insecurity during the Jonathan’s tenure.
“The act of Timi Frank comparing the administration of Goodluck Jonathan to that of President Muhammadu Buhari is the height of an insult to the millions of Nigerians that suffered untold hardship and deprivation under the PDP years of misrule in Nigeria.” Aremu said
“This is the time for Timi Frank to desist from his shameful antics because the apology in question should come from his benefactor, Goodluck Jonathan” Aremu concluded.
