The Apex Igbo Youth Socio-Cultural Organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (Worldwide), OYC, has issued a warning to the former deputy spokesperson of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Timi Frank to desist his verbal attack on the Abia governor, Okezie Ikpeazu.
OYC in a press statement said if the ex-APC spokesperson does not heed to its warning, it will issue a “very damning and damaging dossier”.
Timi Frank according to the group account has accused the Abia Governor, Ikpeazu of hobnobbing with President Buhari and APC by accepting to travel with the President to the ongoing UK-Africa Investment Forum holding in London.
“Members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (Worldwide) consider the sponsored attack against Governor Okezie Ikpeazu by Timi Frank as part of an ongoing orchestrated attacks against Ndigbo and her leaders.”
Ohanaeze Youths also stated it has the information on the real people behind Timi’s statement and will make it public in due time.
“And in due course will make public those behind the attacks who are merely hiding under the identities people like Timi Frank to orchestrate their ignominious mission.”
“Obviously, Timi and his sponsors are hell-bent on their mission of mischief, hence, his isolation of the presidential result from Abia while ignoring the fact that, as incumbent President, Buhari made inroads in 2019 across all the South East States (and not just Abia) compared to 2015 results.
“The result from Abia mirrors that of other South East States and if Timi was looking for who to accuse he should have started with his home state of Bayelsa where APC also made inroads and recently won a Governorship election even at the former President of Nigeria and other political heavy weights of PDP areas.
In its threat, the group said; “This will be our last warning to Timi Frank and his sponsors as we are ready to expose them to the world if they dare disparage Governor Okezie Ikpeazu again.
“We have very damning and damaging dossier of Timi and his sponsors and will not hesitate to bring them to full public glare and knowledge if dared any further.
Urging Ikpeaze to ignore such media attack, OYC said; “Let us once again urge Governor Ikpeazu to ignore the infantile rants of Timi Frank and regard it as the words of a professional blackmailer seeking to reinvent himself while doing the biddings of his masters who are determined to divide Ndigbo for their own selfish political gains”
