The Presidency, on Tuesday, claimed it had evidence to show that some religious and political leaders were planning to convene conferences where a vote of no confidence would be passed on President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to the presidency, the purpose of the move was to further throw the country into turmoil.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, titled ‘Our response to DSS alert, by Presidency.’
The statement read, “The Department of State Services on Sunday alerted on sinister moves by misguided elements to wreak havoc on the government, sovereignty and corporate existence of the country.
“Championed by some disgruntled religious and past political leaders, the intention is to eventually throw the country into a tailspin, which would compel a forceful and undemocratic change of leadership.
“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 in 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.”
