The deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives congress (APC) and member of the new People’s Democratic Party bloc, Timi Frank, has declared the group cannot be intimidated or take for granted.
Mr Frank, speaking to journalists on Tuesday in Abuja, said at the end of the ultimatum on Tuesday, the leadership of the APC was yet to initiate talks with the aggrieved nPDP.
Following the ultimatum given by some members of the “New PDP” on Wednesday last week in a letter to the chairman of the party, John Oyegun, lamenting the lack of appreciation of their efforts, another faction of nPDP led by former governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Adamu, distanced itself from claims of marginalisation.
Mr Frank condemned Mr Adamu’s move and those who distanced themselves from the claims and demands of the group while urging Nigerians not to take Mr Adamu and his group serious as they were never genuine members of the nPDP bloc.
“Today makes it seven days from the day our group brought this letter to the party. But as it stands, we have not gotten any response yet from them. As we have said, whatever we must have said in that letter, it is not an empty threat. If they fail to ignore us, so be it. But at the appropriate time, we are going to respond to Nigerians based on what we’ve said.
“It is not just a mere threat, it is not just a mere ultimatum but I will tell you clearly that we are meeting our leaders, we are going to come up with a clear positions to brief Nigerians on our next step if finally they don’t attend to us.”
“I want to make it very clear that we have no faction in our group. I saw in some of the papers I read today that there is crack in the new PDP.
