Former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has insisted that the crisis-ridden Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is more organised than the ruling APC.
He disclosed this while addressing newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.
Frank also revealed that he has proofs to show that the ruling party is currently embroiled in a leadership crisis.
”Today, practically I don’t even think we have a party. The party today is in disarray, there is confusion. I think we are even more disorganized than the opposition.
”I challenge anybody who will come out and say we are not disorganized; I have every proof to show that we are even more disorganized than the opposition,” he said.
The Bayelsa born politician expressed disappointment at the National Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun’s position on the April convention of the party.
”It’s very disappointing, if the chairman can come out and say we will have a convention in April, then suddenly he reversed himself with an embarrassing statement that we cannot have the convention because we have no money. This is very embarrassing for a ruling party.
”There was no time when we were in PDP, PDP will come out and say such. A party with over 19 governors? A convention is a very important issue.
”If I was the national chairman I would have resigned. A ruling party does not need to beg for money, all you need is to have a strong agenda,” he said.
Timi Frank said the tenure of former acting chairman Bisi Akande was his best period in the party.
”During that time, with less governors and no president, but we could come up to hold our convention. The party had money, we were paying salaries at that time, today we cannot pay salaries at the secretariat, even electricity bills we cannot pay,” he added.
