Cyclic Frattini quotient implies cyclic

Let G be a group such that the following two conditions:

  1. The Frattini subgroup \Phi(G) is a finitely generated group (note that this is automatically satisfied if G is a finite group)
  2. The Frattini quotient, viz., the quotient by the Frattini subgroup, is a cyclic group

Then, G is a cyclic group.
