Despite claims by the presidency that some citizens are plotting to hijack the federal government, Primate Elijah Ayodele says God revealed to him that any coup against President Muhammadu Buhari will fail.
According to the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, nobody can overthrow the Buhari administration because God himself endorsed democracy in Nigeria, PM News reported.
He, however, pointed out that the administration will experience some challenges such as economic hardship, protest, and insecurity.
“The Presidency should not be afraid of any form of a coup, there will be no coup. Nobody can overthrow the government though the administration will be marred by anarchy, destruction, and confusion.
”As long as the government fails to work on insecurity in the country but they should not think of coup, it can’t be successful’’
The pastor advised the current regime to listen to the masses and solve the problems in Nigeria.
He said there will be so much imbalance if the government fails to heed the demands of citizens.
Meanwhile, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has warned soldiers and politicians against any plots to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime.
The spokesperson for the DHQ, Brig-Gen Onyema Nwachukwu, gave the warning in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, May 3, PR Nigeria reported.
Nwachukwu said the military learnt about a statement suggesting that current political leadership should hand over power to the military for restructuring.
In a similar report, the Department of State Services (DSS) has warned that those seeking to throw Nigeria into anarchy will be dealt with.
The Nigeria secret police gave the warning in a terse statement published by The Cable on Sunday, May 2.
Peter Afunanya, the DSS spokesman, said the service will, henceforth, not tolerate those whose aim is to throw the country into anarchy.
