The Buhari presidency has doubled down on a statement by the Department of State Services (DSS), alleging sinister moves by misguided elements to wreak havoc on the government, sovereignty and corporate existence of the country.

The Buhari government has gone further, alleging that the ‘misguided elements’ are plotting a coup d’etat.

That is the crux of the statement by Buhari’s media adviser, Femi Adesina on Tuesday.

Read the statement:

Championed by some disgruntled religious and past political leaders, the intention is to eventually throw the country into a tailspin, which would compel a forceful and undemocratic change of leadership.

Further unimpeachable 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.

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 countr

y.

The caterwauling, in recent times, by these elements, is to prepare the grounds adequately for their ignoble intentions, which are designed to cause further grief for the country.

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.

These discredited individuals and groups are also in cahoots with external forces to cause maximum damage in their own country. But the Presidency, already vested with mandate and authority by Nigerians till 2023, pledges to keep the country together, even if some unruly feathers would be ruffled in the process.

  1. Those who are fanning the embers of war should know that however high the cost of peace is, it is better to obtain a loan to purchase peace. If the price of war is as cheap as oxygen, nobody knows who will survive war. The only legitimate means to change a democratically elected government is through the ballots.
    Nigeria cannot afford to go into another civil war. It shall be too devastating. Those at the forefront of this agitation have their children and spouses outside the country. Their jets are also waiting to fly them out once the flames are on. But if they think they can shoot their arrows to the sky and cover their heads with wooden helmets, the arrows will still descend to break their skulls
    May the peace of the Lord that passes all understanding abide in Nigeria.

  2. Adesina shut up. Do not join Lai Mohammed in lying to the Nation. Nobody or group is plotting to overthrow Buhari rather they were telling Buhari the truth.

    What is the difference between Buhari Head of State regime and President Buhari administration, the same high handedness, nepotism, tribal bigotry etc.

    He thinks that he knows more than any other Nigeria while he knows not that he knows not.
