APC raises disciplinary panel on spokesman, Timi Frank
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is moving to tame its outspoken Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Timi Frank as it has raised a five-member Disciplinary Committee to try him for alleged anti-party activities.
The committee has Mr. Solomon Edoja as Chairman, Davidson Oputteh, Secretary and Tony Odey, Dan Akpan and Wilcox Samuel as members.Frank has been engaged in a prolonged verbal crossfire with the national leadership of the party, a development that blocked his elevation as the Ag. National Publicity Secretary of the party, following the appointment of the erstwhile National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed as the Minister of Information and Culture.
While inaugurating the committee at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, the party’s National Vice Chairman (South South); Hilliard Eta, enjoined members of the panel to consider the petition on its merit.
According to him, the party is an institution built on constitutionality and it is necessary for it to address allegations against any member with a view to ensuring that justice is done.
The Chairman of the committee, Solomon Edoja, who addressed reporters after their inauguration said the committee which has two weeks within which to submit its report, was mandated to consider a petition written by a party member against the spokesman.
