Jibrin says the APC leadership under John Odigie-Oyegun has been unfair to Timi Frank who is supposed to be the spokesman for the party.

Indications are that the stakeholders of the zone may soon be meeting to consider the replacement of the National Publicity Secretary this Thursday, December 1.

According to This Day, the leadership of the party had concluded the plans to select another spokesman from

the North-central zone, particularly from Kwara State.

Timi Frank who is the Deputy National Publicity Secretary was denied the position due his frosty relationship with senior members of the party. Added to his predicament, he was recently suspended from the party, throwing the position open.

The sources said a former Minister of Sports, Bolaji Abdullahi, is set to emerge the new spokesman of the party at a mini-convention slated to hold at the New Chelsea Hotel, Abuja at 11am

It was also confirmed that delegates from only the six states of the North-central zone are expected at the convention, while the Senate President, members of the National Working Committee (NWC) as well as governors from the states are billed to attend the convention.

“Because it is a mini-convention, not all the stats of the federation are expected to attend. The mini-convention will only ratify the choice of the National Publicity Secretary and Mallam Bolaji Abdullahii is set to get the nod as the new spokesman of the party,” a source said.

Meanwhile, there is a twist to story of the emergence of a new spokesman for the APC. According to reports by Sahara Reporters, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki allegedly bribed the Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun, in a bid to see that his candidate emerges spokesperson.
