The Presidency has reacted to alert by the Department of State Services DSS on claims that sinister plans were in the works to wreak havoc on the government, sovereignty and corporate existence of the country.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina in a statement on Tuesday said the plans are being championed by some religious and past political leaders with the intention to eventually throw the country into chaos to create an undemocratic change of leadership.
Adesina said evidence shows that these disruptive elements are now recruiting the leadership of some ethnic groups and politicians round the country, with the intention of convening some sort of conference, where a vote of no confidence would be passed on the President, thus throwing the land into further turmoil.
‘’The agent provocateurs hope to achieve through artifice and sleight of hands, what they failed to do through the ballot box in the 2019 elections.
Nigerians have opted for democratic rule, and the only accepted way to change a democratically elected government is through elections, which hold at prescribed times in the country. Any other way is patently illegal, and even treasonable. Of course, such would attract the necessary consequences’’ the statement reads.
The presidency promises to keep the nation as one indivisible entity even if some unruly feathers would be ruffled in the process.
