Presidency Warns Disruptive Elements Plotting To Throw Nigeria Into Further Turmoil

President Muhammadu Buhari
  • The warning comes two days after the Department of State Services said it will begin a clampdown on agents of anarchy in various parts of the country.

The presidency, on Tuesday, raised an alarm over a plot by some disruptive elements to throw Nigeria into turmoil.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement issued on Tuesday, said the aim of the disruptive elements is to create a situation whereby a vote of no confidence would be passed on President Muhammadu Buhari.

“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,” the statement partly read.


Adesina recalled that 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.
