The current administration has plans to freeze accounts of major opposition leaders ahead of the 2019 general elections, a former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives (APC) Comrade Timi Frank, has revealed.
Frank further listed the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Rivers state governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, Sokoto state governor Aminu Tambuwal, National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus and former governor of Kano state, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso as part of those the government is targeting.
Frank also mentioned the Speaker House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara, who is believed will leave the APC soon.
He stated that asides the opposition leaders, some businessmen and women who are supporters of the opposition parties are also targets in the plot.
The Bayelsa born politician alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government is doing all these against opposition leaders but not aware that he “is surrounded by thieves who have looted the treasury even more than Abacha military government.”
In a statement he signed today, Comrade Timi Frank said the APC is planning to use the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to raise different allegations against major opposition leaders and serving governors across the country in order to demoralized the opposition leaders and render them incapacitated financially.
The former APC deputy spokesperson called on Nigerians and international communities not to keep silent in the face of what he called “ongoing impunity and threat to democratic system of government in Nigeria.
“Even though after serious pressures we gathered that EFCC had unfrozen the accounts they earlier illegally step down, we are in the known that they will soon start with private individuals but whatever game plan the ruling party might be plotting against the major opposition leaders and other private individuals, Nigerians will rise against it.”
