Former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has described the recent assassination attempt on the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, as a direct vindication of his previous position that the lives of major opposition political party leaders in the country are not safe.
Frank said the desperation of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government to get re-elected in next year’s election is dangerous for the country. Comrade Frank condemned in strong terms the assassination attempt on Ekweremadu. He alleged that the ruling party was doing everything possible to stop key figures of the major opposition political party in the country.
He also called on international community to keep an eye on happenings in Nigeria as the country approaches the 2019 general elections. He further stated that a thorough investigation must be carried out by the security agencies to unravel the real sponsors of the suspected killers.
“Of recent, PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and some of his family members were threatened with death by some apologists of the APC but surprisingly nothing has come out of the investigation into the matter despite a letter written to the president himself and the reported arrest of a suspect responsible for the heinous plot.
“We are calling on Nigerians to be vigilant and get ready to protect their votes because this government will do everything possible to steal the mandate of the people in 2019,” he stated.
