The All Progressives Congress, APC, is in a dilemma over the imminent vacancy being created by the departure of its veteran spokesman, Alhaji Lai Mohammed. Officials of the party are said to be in quandary over the ill-defined succession procedures as laid in its constitution that could make Mohammed’s present deputy, Comrade Timi Frank, to succeed him.
Frank, an associate of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, had in the past openly called for the resignation of the national chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and also, severally contradicted official party spokesman, Alhaji Mohammed.
Mohammed was confirmed as a minister and by the provisions of the constitution no officer of the party can at the same time serve in the government.
As gathered by Vanguard, Mohammed’s imminent exit is said to be posing a strong challenge to party officials as many in the party hierarchy are uncomfortable with Frank who had in the past viciously rebelled against the mainstream of the party.
