The Federal Government has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar have plans to overthrow the President Muhammadu Buhari administration through a military coup.
The federal government revealed this via the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed while addressing State House Correspondents shortly after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Buhari on Wednesday.
According to Mohammed, the PDP has already begun hatching the plot towards overthrowing Buhari’s government.
Mohammed said: “The PDP and Atiku are doing everything possible to sabotage the Buhari Administration and generally overheat the polity.
“They want to make Nigeria seemingly ungovernable, especially through their public utterances and their poorly-thought-out press statements before and after the 2019 general elections.”
In his address titled: PDP’s Brand of Opposition Politics Poses Great Threat to Nigeria’s Democracy, said:
“Never in the history of politics in Nigeria has an opposition party exhibited the kind of desperate tactics being deployed by the PDP and its flag-bearer, especially since President Buhari defeated Atiku in the 2019 presidential elections.
“For those who may accuse the government of crying wolf, the pre-election statement credited to the former Vice President, that unless Nigerians vote out the APC Administration, herdsmen’s killings will continue and ultimately spark an irreversible ethno-religious crisis, looks more like a Freudian slip than anything else,” he stated.
