Tribunal: Buhari Media Wants Timi Frank Arrested Over Tribunal Judges Comment

The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) says the Nigeria Police Force
should arrest a former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, for making ‘totally irresponsible’ statements.

The supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari, claimed that Frank’s latest statements, cast aspersion on the presidential election petitions tribunal judges, ahead of the ruling on the petition filed by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the election of the incumbent.

Frank had in a statement claimed that the judges could be tempted to rule in favour of Buhari.

The BMO, however, took exception to that.

In a statement by its Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the Buhari supporters stated that the former APC deputy spokesperson crossed a line by impugning the integrity of the tribunal panel members.

“We have in recent days noticed a coordinated effort by PDP and its allies to arm-twist members of the tribunal, but Timi Frank’s choice of words is totally irresponsible.

“It would, therefore, not be out of place for us to call on the police to act fast, to prevent this organised mindless attempt to blackmail the judiciary without basis,” BMO said.
