Frank Blasts Buhari For ‘Vowing To Jail Corrupt Nigerians’ – Alleges Plot to Arrest Obasanjo, Saraki, Atiku
Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has raised fresh allegations over alleged plot to arrest former President Olusegun Obasanjo; former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Senate President Bukola Saraki, among others.
Frank, who raised the concern in a statement issued yesterday in Abuja, also cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari over a reported statement credited to him that he will jail some Nigerians now that he is back from 10 days leave.
Frank, who considered the statement as a threat to Nigerians, called on the President to look inward within his administration if he is looking for looters to jail.
President Buhari had reportedly told journalists in an interview after his arrival in Abuja last Saturday that he would jail more of the ‘thieves’ that brought economic problems to the country.
But reacting to the President’s comment, Frank said:
“I want to tell you, Mr. President that you are presiding over the worst and most corrupt administration ever. If you realy want to fight corruption why not start from your kitchen cabinet and the leadership of APC?”
“Nigerians and international community are fully aware that all you have been doing is not fighting corruption but your perceived political enemies.”
“Against this backdrop we have reliably gathered that the current administration have penciled down the likes of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Senate President Bukola Saraki among others to be arrested and detained ahead of the general elections in the name of fighting corruption.”
According to Frank, Nigeria is currently in a democratic system of government which requires that a competent court must finds someone guilty of any allegation before he or she can be sent to prison.
While calling on the president to fully imbibe democratic culture, Frank said if the President carefully search his government with an open mind, “he will realise that he is surrounded by thieves.
“It is no longer hidden that president Buhari’s party, the APC is now a heaven for looters. So many known thieves who have stolen Nation’s common wealth at all levels are now congregating in the ruling party. So, if President Buhari will make do with his threat, I will suggest that he stary with his party members.”
