There are evil plans to frame Atiku, assassinate him – Ex-APC chieftain, Frank

All Progressives Congress (APC) former deputy national publicity secretary, Timi Frank, has raised the alarm over alleged plots to frame, arrest and assassinate the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Frank accused his former party, the APC of being behind the ‘evil’ plot, saying that the plan is being orchestrated by the ruling party in order to protect “the stolen mandate”; referring to the 2019 presidential election, in which President Muhammadu Buhari was declared as winner.

Timi Frank stated this while reacting to the recent alarms raised by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and the military insinuating that certain persons were planning to overthrow the government.

While he argued that the alarms were false from the pit of hell, Frank challenged the military to conduct a detailed probe and make the names of the said coup plotters public if, indeed, any such plots exist.

He further argued in the statement he made available to newsmen on Thursday, that the claim by the military was part of plots by APC to use fabricated lies to protect a stolen mandate given to Buhari ahead of the May 29 swearing-in.

He also called on the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who alerted of the plot to overthrow Buhari by some persons to leave Atiku alone, adding that the APC is now on panic mood.

He said, “There are evil plans to frame up the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, arrest him or assassinate him in a bid to protect the stolen mandate.

“It is on the known that APC government is doing everything possible to eliminate Atiku Abubakar in a bid to protect the stolen mandate. There is no peace for the election riggers.

“The military has suddenly turned to propaganda machine under the current administration but like I have said before, until the Supreme Court decides who actually won the last presidential election, APC government will be an ‘illegal’ government after May 29.”

He also frowned at the APC government plan to borrow another $1 billion Chinese loan.

“My question has always been, what has he been doing with all the loans so far collected ever since this government came to power? Where is the money they boasted to have recovered from the perceived looters? What about the huge money claimed to have been generated by the agencies of this government?

“The insecurity is getting worse. Corruption under Mr. Integrity is on the highest level. Poverty, unemployment and MMM kind of economy are now the order of the day under the APC administration,” he lamented.
