Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank has raised alarm over an alleged plan by some persons to assassinate the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his Campaign Director General, Sen. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, at a campaign ground in one of the northern states.
In a statement released yesterday January 7th, Timi said a petition has been written to the United Nations, the African Union, the American government, the governments of the United Kingdom and Canada among others, stressing that should anything happen to the politicians, the APC government should be held responsible.
Frank, said information available to the PDP through intelligence and sources within the rank and file of the security agencies, revealed the plot by the current administration to arrange some hoodlums to disrupt one of the PDP presidential rallies at a particular northern state while a mobile police officer will directly shoot at either Saraki or Atiku, which will later be blamed on armed bandits.
Frank in his statement, said that the only way the present administration hopes to stop Atiku Abubakar from becoming the next President is to assassinate him as being allegedly planned by the Buhari’s administration
”What we are saying is that through the help of God and intelligence, we are getting to know some of the evil plans of the APC’s administration to stop the will of God for Nigeria. Politics should not be a do-or-die affair the way APC is playing it. Although the growing acceptability of Atiku Abubakar is threatening but the APC and the Buhari presidency should learn to play the game by the rule.
Any attempt to cause havoc, using hoodlums or security agents will be resisted by Nigerians. We are raising this alarm because we don’t want to take anything for granted. We have seen political assassinations in the past and the country has also witnessed the recent assassination of a former Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh, allegedly carried out by this administration for political reasons,” Frank stated.
