The former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank has accused the Abia State governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu of being a mole in the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Frank’s made the accusation in statement issued in Abuja Monday came in response to the governor’s attack on his earlier statement that most PDP governors were not committed to the opposition politics in Nigeria.
He said rather than Ikpeazu apologising for his observation that it was wrong for him to travel with President Muhammadu Buhari to the UK: “The governor started making shallow defence as to why he chose to jet out with the President at the expense of his party’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.”
According to him, this buttressed the belief in some quarters that he (Ikpeazu) is indeed an All Progressives Congress (APC) mole even as a PDP governor.
Frank wrote, in Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, Queen Gertrude said: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” She did this in reference to the insincere overacting of a character in the play.
“From that day till today, nothing has changed. Insincerity is most obvious in overly dramatic denials. And this is what we see with Okezie Victor Ikpeazu’s response to my candid observation.
“The popular saying that an old woman is always uneasy at the mention of dry bones manifested itself in the reply of the incompetent Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu to my statement I criticised him for hopping off to London with President Muhammadu Buhari in the midst of a serious national and political onslaught against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Imo State.
“Playing the ostrich, Ikpeazu pinned his trip with the President to the UK-Africa Investment Summit on the quest market his proposed Enyimba Economic City Project to foreign investors.
“Does a man go on a jamboree when his house is on fire? That is the question that Ikpeazu should answer rather than play acting in his protests that represent his guilty conscience.” (New Telegraph)
