The Disciplinary Panel, set up by the All Progressives Congress (APC), to look into a petition against the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank, has recommended his suspension and subsequent expulsion from the party.
The five-man committee was setup by the party’s South-South zonal vice chairman, Hilliard Etta, to investigate a petition brought against Timi Frank by Aniekan Akpabio, a member of the party from Akwa-Ibom state. Akpabio accused Frank of making disparaging comments against the party in the media among other things.
The panel recommended that Frank be suspended forthwith, and also asked the zonal executive committee to recommend Frank’s expulsion to the National Executive Committee.
The committee said it had no other option than to recommend his suspension since he shunned an invitation to appear before the panel to defend himself.
Reacting swiftly, Timi Frank dismissed the report.
