Following the heightened insecurity enveloping almost all the geo political zones in Nigeria, Femi Oyewale, President, National Association of Online Security Reporters, NAOSRE, has raised concerns over cautionary comments alluding to an allegation that some leaders are plotting to overthrow the government.
According NAOSRE president, the Presidency, on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 claimed it has evidence to the effect that some elements are recruiting ethnic groups and politicians to convene a conference where a vote of no confidence would be passed on the President.
Reacting, Oyewale emphasized the patriotic efforts made by the immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, who, on assumption of office, recovered all the territories previously occupied by insurgents as well as put in check suicide bombing.
NAOSRE president stated that during Buratai’s period, sanity was gradually retuning to the system and military personnel were pre occupied with engaging the insurgents for a safer Nigeria.
“At no time were there insinuations of attempting to overthrow government because soldiers were happy to defend Nigeria. We were not receiving DSS alert on overthrowing government during Buratai,” he said.
He however wondered how, within few months, the country has been turned into turmoil and insecurity has assumed freighting and disintegrating dimensions.
The NAOSRE President therefore called on the present Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, to deploy Tukur Buratai’s strategies and sustain his efforts.
