Ahead of Saturday’s special national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party, the former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Timi Frank has warned the participating Adhoc delegates not to sell their votes to the highest bidder.
In a statement which was made available to Newspot in Abuja on Thursday, Timi urged the delegates to place national interest above selfish interest, noting that the nation is in dire need of a man with track records of performance.
He said the process of electing a President begins from the convention, urging delegates to look out for someone who can provide, “solutions, good governance, experience, competence, impeccable character and a strong political will to deliver.”
Timi said, a country like Nigeria, needs a national rebirth and development given the collateral damage done by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The statement claimed that the APC was already getting it wrong as a result of its lack of internal democracy and imposition of candidates which have become the principles and directive policies of the party.
Frank, who is the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) Ambassador to East Africa and the Middle East, said, “We have observed with utmost disappointment that during the primary elections for House of Representatives, Senate and Governorship of the PDP, political office holders, especially outgoing Governors, hijacked the processes by imposing their lackeys on the people.
He said some governors and political office holders have a culture of harassing and intimidating delegates with looted funds, warning that delegates should resist them and vote their conscience.
“This action by the Governors will definitely not lead to the kind of leadership Nigerians desire in the next dispensation beginning from the 2023 general elections.
“Therefore, we passionately and strongly urge Adhoc delegates to the Special Convention of the PDP to pick the party’s presidential candidate on Saturday to shun all manner of bribe but should be courageous to vote for a candidate that is competent to lead our dear country out of the woods.
