A political activist and former Depyty National Publicity Secretary of
the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has advised the
Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption
(PACAC) and Professor of Law, Mr. Itse Sagay (SAN), not to kill himself

we saw in the last general elections.
“The Supreme Court has demonstrated once agin that the Judiciary is
truly the last hope of the common man. Sagay’s position on issues
concerning the aforementioned cases is irrelevant being an APC chieftain
who is known to lie profusely by twisting the law to suit his selfish
