Timi Frank, suspended National Deputy Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has berated the seven Northern governors who endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term.
Recall that seven Northern governors had endorsed Buhari for a second term after visiting the president at the presidential villa on Saturday.
In his reaction, Frank said the governors asking Buhari to seek re-election “are selfish”.
The APC Chieftain wondered why the governors never visited their counterpart in Benue State, Samuel Ortom, following killings in his state.
In a statement, Frank, however, warned Buhari to be wary of “parasitic politicians”.
He said, “They chose to visit the Aso Rock Villa and made such demand for their selfish reason.
“Instead of these governors to advise Mr. President on how to put an end to wanton killings going on across the country, fuel queues, economic hardship and the rest, they chose to be selfish.
“Is Benue governor not an APC member? Is Benue state where 72 people were killed not part of Nigeria?
“The President should recall that the impunity and arrogance being displayed by APC leaders like el-Rufai and others by telling Nigerians that they have no apology, angered Nigerians against the last administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“While Jonathan has since lost power, many of those making such statements have also abandoned him. Mr. President should therefore bear in mind that these governors are not persuading him to run not because they love him but for their selfish interest.”
