ASO ROCK Tuesday warned that any individual or group planning to engage in activities that could undermine the Buhari administration would be dealt with, not minding the consequences.
Apparently responding to last weekend’s alert by the Department of State Services – DSS, that some persons were planning to pass a vote of no confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari, in a statement, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said that the only acceptable way to change a democratically elected government should be through elections.
‘’Any other way is patently illegal and even treasonable.’’ Adesina said.
He added that the plot is being ‘’championed by some disgruntled religious and past political leaders,’’ whose intention is to 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 around 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,’’ part of the statement said.
The Presidency however, noted that the Buhari led government was vested with mandate and authority by Nigerians till 2023, saying the administration ‘’pledges to keep the country together, even if some unruly feathers would be ruffled in the process.”
