- Comrade Timi Frank has hailed Honourable Yakubu Dogara for joining the PDP
- Frank says the decision of the speaker of the House of Representatives is courageous
- He expressed confidence that more APC members will soon join the PDP
Former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has commended the speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Yakubu Dogara, for dumping the APC for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Comrade Frank in a statement sent to journalists on Monday, September 17, described the decision of the speaker as “courageous and in interest of the country.”
Frank said Dogara's decision to change his political party is a right decision expected of a true patriot.
He however expressed shock that the APC national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who recently praised the speaker could suddenly come out to condemn him over his decision to change party.
His words: “Oshiomhole and other few leaders remaining in APC should know that Nigerians are tired of the kind of change their party has brought on them.
“Is it the rise on the number of people loosing their means of income daily, high number of people committing suic*de, hunger, high inflation, killings and all kinds of backwardness the country is going through?
“So, I have to commend the Speaker Dogara for his courage, not minding the position he is holding but decided to join forces with others to rescue Nigeria from the evil hands of the current handlers."
The former APC spokesman, while assuring that more APC lawmakers in the lower chamber will soon join Honourable Dogara in the PDP by the time the House resumes, also declared that, “the speaker is not bothered about the empty threat of impeachment by the APC and its national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.”
