Nigerians Won’t Allow Coup To Happen – APC
Following insinuation that is making the rounds about plan by some military top officers to plot a coup to remove the present administration, the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi has allayed the fear.
Abdullahi said that Nigerians would always kick against coup, adding that the people had become wiser and would be ready to protect democracy.
He was reacting to the alarm raised by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Turkur Buratai that some individuals had been approaching some of the Nigerian Army officers to remove the present government through coup d’état.
“We have hesitated to react so far because we think that the house belongs to us so we wanted to wait for Nigerians to react and Nigerians have reacted. “If there was any such thing in the offing, I think it is clear to everyone that Nigerians will defend their own democracy,” Abdullahi said.
In a statement by the Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, some individuals have been approaching some of our officers for undisclosed political reasons to unseat the present government headed by Muhammadu Buhari.
For Abdullahi, the Nigerian Army comprises of thorough bread professional that would not jeopardize democracy. He advised soldiers who have political ambition to resign and join politics instead of plotting coup.
