The deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has alleged that the national chairman of the party, John Oyegun, is planning to oust some prominent members of the party including Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar among others.
Frank made the allegation in a release he signed and made available to journalists, on Thursday, January 26, The Sun reports.
“Chief Oyegun is vigorously working to ensure that he pushes out some prominent members of the party including the National Leader Bola Tinubu, myself and so many other leaders who have spoken against his leadership style which is now more of a dictator,” he said.
The APC spokesperson accused the national chairman of breaching the party’s constitution several times, even as regard to national convention which the party law states clearly that it must be held every two years.
He said: “Oyegun is talking about indiscipline when there are several allegations of bribery and favouritism yet unanswered hanging on his neck.”
The APC deputy spokesman challenged Oyegun to tell the world how he plans to fill some vacant positions in the NWC when “he is talking of non-elective national convention.”
Frank said members should be allowed to critise the wrong doing of the handler of the party if APC is a democratic party
“Some of us have prepared to meet them at the convention no matter the evil agenda they are planning against us,” Frank said.

He alleged that the convention template prepared by the Oyegun led NWC is designed to favour some interests within the party ahead of 2019 general elections and urged members to reject it.
Meanwhile, after months of speculations, the Action Democratic Party (ADP) has formally submitted all necessary documents foe registration as a political party to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Plans for a mega party have been in the pipeline for a while with reports indicating it was formed by disgruntled elements in the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The formation of the ADP has unsettled both the ruling party and the main opposition party as politicians within them are reportedly funding the new party.
