The federal government on Saturday claimed there was credible proof that the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, were planning to subvert the power of the state, attack the economy, and unleash mayhem on the polity.
In a swift reaction, former Vice President challenged Information Minister, Lai Mohammed to come up with evidence if he has any, to back his claim that he (Atiku) and the PDP were planning to overthrow the government of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The government said the security agencies must be alive to their responsibilities to stop any plan to reverse the gains of the country’s democracy.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made the allegation at his Oro country home in Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara State during the 12th annual Ramadan lecture.
Mohammed said, “Our interventions are based on credible evidence, and no government with the kind of evidence that we have, of plans to subvert the power of the state, attack the nation’s economic life wire, and generally unleash mayhem on the polity, will keep quiet.
“The security agencies are all alert to their responsibilities and will not sit by and allow anyone to reverse the gains of our democracy under any guise.”
He added, “Since our intervention, pseudo and partisan analysts have teamed up with the spokesmen for the main opposition party and its presidential candidate to either exhibit their ignorance or to engage in red herring and name calling…
“We are neither distracted nor dissuaded.”
Mohammed also disclosed, “As you are aware, a few days ago we raised the alarm that either by themselves or via their proxies, the PDP and its presidential candidate are doing everything possible to sabotage the Buhari administration, generally overheat the polity, and make Nigeria seemingly ungovernable.
