Timi Frank Is On His Own – APC

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced itself from the letter of apology written to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan by a purposed chieftain of the party, Timi Frank.

Recall that as reported by Naija News, Frank, a former deputy spokesman of the party, had in his letter, spoke against the administration of President Buhari and submitted that Nigerians had a better lease of life under former president Jonathan.

However, in a reaction on Sunday, Bolaji Abdullahi, spokesman of APC, said Frank said whatever he said in his personal capacity and not on behalf of the party or as a party member.

“Our attention has been drawn to a report in which one Timi Frank was addressed as a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC),” the statement read.

“We wish to correct the wrongful designation and remind the general public that Timi Frank has since November 2016 been suspended as a member of the APC following a recommendation of an APC disciplinary committee and subsequent ratification by the party’s south-south zonal executive committee.

“Hence, whatever position Timi Frank holds or canvasses is done in his personal capacity and has no bearing on the APC.”

Though the disciplinary committee said it would recommend the expulsion of Frank from the APC to the national executive committee (NEC), that is yet to be implemented.
