The deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. Timi Frank has condemned the demolition of the parallel faction of the party by Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State saying that it reflected how governors would act should State Police be allowed in the country.

Frank in a statement obtained by also commended the quickness with which the Senate condemned the action by the Kaduna State governor.

He said:
“Ironically, Governor El-Rufai headed the Restructuring Committee of APC which recommended State Police for the country. But I ask, if the same El-Rufai is in charge of Police today as Governor, will he not misuse it?” Frank queried.

“One would have expected Mr. Governor to show little respect for President Muhammadu Buhari, who has appointed our respected National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to ensure reconciliation of all the aggrieved members in the APC.

“Whatever the case may be, Asiwaju would have been allowed to intervene and amicably resolve the crisis in Kaduna state, which is not the only APC state that has been factionalised.”

“what governor el-Rufai has done is a bad precedent for Chief Executives in other states which is not good for democracy, to the extent that if anybody offends or opposes the views of a governor, the next thing is to find an excuse to demolish the houses of such opposing views.

“I also expect the presidency and the APC under Chief John Oyegun to condemn Gov. el-Rufai’s act.

“Like I have always said, Gov. el-Rufai will soon disappoint President Buhari the more at the appropriate time if he cannot respect the president now, how will he respect him when Mr. President leaves power. So I am still warning President Buhari to be careful of Mallam el-Rufai, because he has done it to all his benefactors in the past,” Frank stated.
