Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Timi Frank, has asked the Economic Community of West African States to sack President Bola Tinubu as its chairman over lack of legitimacy.
This was contained in a statement made by the former scribe of the party in Abuja.
He said the president lost legitimacy following the discovery that he allegedly forged the Chicago State University certificate he filed with the Independent National Electoral Commission to contest the 2023 presidential election.
He challenged ECOWAS to retain its credibility and respect by acting very fast.
Frank called on past and present presidents of member states of ECOWAS to prevail on the sub-regional body to do the right thing by appointing another chairman in an acting capacity pending ratification during the next Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS.
He added that failure to act would put the regional body in a lame-duck position where all decisions reached during the tenure of Tinubu would not be respected and therefore null and void.
According to Frank, “If ECOWAS must remain relevant and retain its credibility and respect among member states, especially in dealing with military junta now spreading fast like a pandemic across the sub-Region it must act fast to protect its integrity.”
He also said that the leadership of the military junta in Burkina Faso, Guinea, Mali and Niger Republic not to have any dealings, discussions or negotiations with the Tinubu-led ECOWAS until the president is removed as its chairman.
