The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has taken on Timi Frank over claims that Senator Uba Sani, APC gubernatorial candidate for Kaduna State is the brain behind an unverifiable attack on a rally for the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in Kaduna.

The Party called on Frank to tender apology as well as a retract his allegation against Sani or face legal action

A statement in reaction to the allegations signed by Alhaji Salisu Tanko Wusono, APC’s Publicity Secretary in Kaduna State, said Frank was on a new assignment to augument his income as the so called Ambassador of United Liberation Movement for West Papua, to East Africa and the Middle East. 
Wusono noted that the former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of (APC) is perfect for the hatchet job of running his mouth, going by his antecedent, on a matter that he is ill informed about.
The statement reads in part that: “Indeed, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has elected spokesmen at state and national levels, including those at the Presidential Campaign Council, as well as the battery of media aides that its presidential candidate parades.
“However, giving the reputational damage that it may cause them, apart from possible litigation, the party  chose an unsavoury character to carry its dubious message, which is laden with injurious falsehoods.

“In a statement that was widely published, Timi Frank claimed that Distinguished Senator Uba Sani and the Kaduna State Gubernatorial candidate of APC, sent thugs to disrupt PDP’s presidential rally, without an iota of proof. Significantly, Timi Frank was mis-briefed by his paymasters,” he said. 

Wusono also pointed out that the Township Stadium venue of the PDP rally in kaduna was half empty last Monday to the utter embarrassment of PDP chieftains, in a state that has a former vice president, an ex governor and  a two  term senator, including former National Chairman of the party.
On the same day, Wusono said,  Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, was in Kaduna to interact with Northern Leaders at Arewa House. 
“All roads led to Arewa House as APC supporters, PDP die-hards and non partisan citizens of Kaduna State trooped to hear Tinubu’s  plans for the North when he becomes President of Nigeria by the Grace of God and the people’s votes.
“Consequently, the PDP presidential rally was reduced to a Town Hall meeting and to cover this embarrassment, the party alleged that thugs attacked their members at Ranchers Bees stadium,” he said. 
“However, in a bid to set the records straight and clear his name, and  APC’s integrity, Timi Frank will hear from  our lawyers in due course, if he does not retract that libelous statement and offer an unreserved apology to our Gubernatorial candidate and our party”, Wusono sternly warned.
