CSO to DHQ: Those calling for coup are benefitting from insecurity

The Advocates for Democracy and Development (ADD), a civil society organisation, says those clamouring for a coup are beneficiaries of the security challenges in the country.

On Sunday, the defence headquarters debunked a viral report which claimed that the guards brigade, a unit that protects the seat of power, has been put on high alert over a purported coup plot, caused by the economic crisis pervading the land. 

Last week, Christopher Musa, chief of defence staff, warned against the clamour for a coup, saying while the “country has been experiencing some challenges”, calls for a putsch were way out of order.

In a statement on Monday, Gbenga Osho, the convener of ADD, described the “coup mongers” as “wicked and retrogressive”, adding that the calls are aimed at derailing the military’s efforts against banditry and terrorism in the country.

Osho said the persons calling for the overthrow of President Bola Tinubu’s government are beneficiaries of the insecurity plaguing the country.

“We are glad that time and time again, the present leadership of the Armed Forces of Nigeria under Gen. Christopher Musa has said the military is loyal to the constitution and President Bola Tinubu,” he said.

“We in ADD urge Nigerians to continue to support the military under Gen Musa who have shown determination to quickly restore peace and stability and remain loyal to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
