A panel set up by All Progress Congress (APC) South-South Vice Chairman, Chief Eta Hilliard, to investigate the petition against the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Timi Frank, on Thursday, submitted its report with recommendation that he should be suspended and subsequently expelled from the party.
The recommendation of the panel is yet to be considered by necessary organs of the party for ratification or otherwise.
Some of the recommendations of the five-man panel read in part: “Since the committee is not a Father Christmas, it has no choice than to rely on the prima facie evidence tendered upon the petitioner, consequent upon which, the committee hereby recommends as follows:
“That Timi Frank be suspended from the party forthwith in line with article 21D (f).
“That zonal executive committee should recommend to the NEC for the expulsion of Timi Frank from the party in line with article 21 D (h) (ii) and (iii).”
Comrade Frank it will be recalled had been having running battle with National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.
The disciplinary panel chaired by Mr. Solomon Edoja, had, during it inauguration on October 26, said that it would follow due process in carrying out the assignment.
