Presidency: Some disgruntled politicians, religious leaders plotting to remove Buhari

The office of the President has raised alarm that  some “disgruntled religious and past political leaders” are plotting to convene an illegal National Conference with s view to imposing vote of no confidence would be passed on President Muhammadu Buhari so as to overthrow his government.

Acccording to Adeshina, they want to do this  so as to further throw the country into turmoil.

The alarm was raised by the  Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesin in a statement on Tuesday.

Adeshina, that the religious and political leaders want to wreak havoc on the nation’s sovereignty and the corporate existence of the country.

The statement says that they are working in tandem with foreign elements, to achieve what they could not do during the last election

The statement read, “The Department of State Services (DSS), on Sunday alerted on sinister moves by misguided elements to wreak havoc on the government, sovereignty and corporate existence of the country.

“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.

“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.”
