Travelling Ban : Obasanjo, Babaginda, Atiku are main targets – Timi Frank

Comrade Timi Frank, former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has revealed that former President Olusegun Obasanjo, former President Ibrahim Babangida, Presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, are the main targets of the Executive Order 06 now being implemented by President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Frank also mentioned Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, General Aliyu Gusau, Gen. TY Danjuma, Bishop David Oyedepo, Rev. Fr Mathew Hassan Kuka, Sheik Gumi and so many other traditional rulers, businessmen and women favourably disposed to the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as  President in the 2019 elections are also targets of the travelling ban, which has generated different reactions and interpretations in the country since it was announced few days ago by the Buhari’s administration.

This was contained in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by the Comrade Politician while reacting to the implementation of the Executive Order 06 banning about 50 high-profile Nigerians from travelling abroad , which he described as a rebirth of draconian Decree 04 .

 “It is a reminiscent of the infamous and draconian Decree No. 4 of 1984 which was cruelly pursued and enforced by the incumbent President who was then the Military Head of State.”

Frank said.

“It is obvious that the main purpose of the said EO6 is to weaken the leaders of opposition political parties ahead of the 2019 general elections,” he added.

He opined that  the ealier list released to the media was a distraction from the real targets which he assured will soon be made public.

He therefore warned that unless the international community and well meaning Nigerians speak up now against acts of dictatorship of the Buhari administration, democracy in Nigeria may soon end.

In his opinion, the ruling APC has been rattled with the emergence of former Vice President as PDP Presidential candidate and his rising popularity, which led to the autocratic tactics to cripple the opposition leaders in the guise of fighting corruption.

While assuring that Nigerians will resist what he termed the tyrannical-governance-style of President Buhari, Frank alerted the international community of “Plot to truncate democratic system of government in Nigeria by the APC’s administration.”

The former APC spokesman who described the latest order as a “draconian measure to frighten the opposition elements from challenging Buhari in the coming election, stated that if care is not taken the action of the president might engineer the military to takeover power.

“Unknown to gullible ones, President Buhari is playing godfather to corrupt people in his administration. For Nigerians to take this order serious, I hope the ban will include Adams Oshiomhole, Rotimi Amaechi, former SGF Babachir Lawal, Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, his former Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun, Lai Muhammed, former DSS boss Lawal Daura, GMD of the NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru and the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu – for skipping the mandatory NYSC service – among others.

“I also hope President Buhari will explain to Nigerians how his wife got N2.6billion that was stolen by her ADC.”

The General elections in Nigeria is fixed for February, 2019.
