The Disciplinary Committee set up by the All Progressives Congress, APC to examine a petition against the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Timi Frank, on Thursday, submitted its report, recommending the suspension and subsequent expulsion of Mr Frank from the party.
According to Vanguard, the Solomon Edoja-led five man committee was recently constituted by the South South zonal vice chairman of the party, Hilliard Etta to investigate a petition written by a member of the party from Akwa Ibom state, Mr Aniekan Akpabio.
The petitioner had accused Mr Frank of making disparaging comments against the party in the media. Just before the committee began its sittings, Mr Frank had indicated that he would not appear before a “kangaroo panel”.
However, submitting its report to the zonal executive of the party in Abuja, the committee said while the petitioner appeared before it, Frank never honoured its invitation.
The committee said it is not a Father Christmas and so had no option than to rely on the claims of the petitioner to arrive at its recommendations.
While it recommended that Frank be suspended forthwith, the committee also asked the zonal executive committee to recommend the expulsion of Mr Frank to the National Executive Committee.
