Recall that Frank had accused President Muhammadu Buhari of meeting with the INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu and Chief of Army staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai to perfect his rigging plans at midnight.

Miffed with his statement, the Nigerian Army opined that Frank’s alleged statements were baseless and was targeted against the person of Buratai.

To this end, the force debunked the allegation but said that Buhari is at liberty to hold meeting with his Service Chiefs any time.

It equally warned mischief makers to steer clear of joining issues with the Institution or its leadership in matters that are purely political.
