Why PDP’s Nationwide Protest Will Fail-Timi Frank



Time Frank

Former All Progressive Congress (APC), Deputy National spokesperson, Timi Frank has rubbished a planned nationwide protest by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), to protest the Supreme Court ruling that sacked former Imo governor, Emeka Ihedioha.

Frank revealed that the action by the opposition party is doomed to fail, adding that it should have happened a long time ago but has now lost significance.

Accusing the PDP governors who indulge in anti-party activities of weakening the opposition party, Frank accused them of secretly seeking goodies from the ruling party.

According to Frank, PDP’s move was too little, too late because the party failed to protest when it mattered most such as when for Chief Justice of Nigeria Walter Onnoghen was removed from office and Supreme Court ruled against the opposition’s candidate Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 presidential election appeal.


Frank submitted that PDP’s planned protest is medicine after death, beliving that PDP should have held the nationwide protest a long time ago. “Such action at this time will only fail, ” he said.

To Frank, the opposition party is also bedevilled by anti-party activities among its top executives such as governors.

Apart from Rivers and Benue governors Nyesom Wike and Samuel Ortom, the outspoken Bayelsa-born politician accused PDP governors of lobbying the presidency for goodies despite being in opposition. He also faulted the Abia state governor Okezie Ikpeazu, who is currently on a trip with President Muhammadu Buhari to London, for making such a move at a time his party needed him the most at home for protest against the Ihedioha ruling.

He accused about 14 of the current PDP governors of working against the party’s interests.

“Apart from the governor of Rivers state Nyesom Wike and sometimes, the Benue state governor Samuel Ortom, other PDP governors are PDP by the day and APC by night; they fraternize with the APC thereby rendering PDP incapacitated and unable to function properly and cannot play the role of effective opposition.”
