Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has set up a five-man disciplinary panel to investigate its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank.
Frank has been relentless in his harsh criticisms of the party's National Chairman John Oyegun.
The committee was inaugurated by the APC National Vice Chairman, South-South, Prince Hilliard Eta on Wednesday, reports Daily Trust
The committee, which has Solomon Edoja as Chairman, has Ben Davidson Opute Dr Wilson Samuel, Dan Akpan, and Barr. Tony Odey as members.
Edoja, who fielded questions from journalists after the inauguration, said their job was to consider a petition from Mr Aneka Akpabio, against Comrade Frank who, he added, would be invited for fair hearing.
News 24 recalls that Frank has persistently called for the resignation of Oyegun over his leadership style.
Frank ran into trouble waters with Oyegun after the party’s publicity secretary, Lai Mohammed, was made a minister by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Frank expected he would by virtue of his position emerge as the party’s spokesperson.
That was not to be as Oyegun and the National Secretary, Mala Buni, said only they could henceforth speak for the ruling party.
