It’s obvious the ruling party is on serious attack from within and outside the party. Lately, many of the risen tension are from within the party, especially from aggrieved members who lost tickets during last primary election. For some weeks now, the National Party Chairman, Adam Oshiomhole has been under siege from men within the party over bribery allegations.
Just on Thursday, former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Timi Frank, has accused the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, of collecting over $50m from different aspirants during the last primaries of the party.
Frank alleged that a large percentage of the money was paid to Oshiomhole through proxies from Imo, Zamfara, Adamawa and Ogun states.
In a statement on Thursday, Frank threatened to publish the names and the amount of money paid by aspirants to allegedly bribe the former Edo State governor to clear them and substitute the names of duly elected candidates with those that failed.
But dismissing the allegations as “unfounded”, Oshiomhole labelled Frank “a political jobber”.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, he challenged Frank to publish the names of the alleged bribe givers or face legal action.
Ebegbulem said, “He is a political jobber looking for cheap popularity. How on earth would people of questionable character like Frank be questioning the integrity of the National Chairman? I challenge him to publish the names of those that gave the alleged bribes or we won’t hesitate to institute legal action against him.”
