- The Buhari Media Organisation has claimed that it alleged that there is a sinister plot being hatched by some opponents of President Muhammadu Buhari
- The group, however, stopped short of naming the alleged conspirators it accused of resorting to unconstitutional change of power
- The BMO disclosed why it is not in support of any planned conference by Nigerian elites from any part of the country
The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has accused a former Nigerian leader of plotting to force President Muhammadu Buhari to resign.
Buhari’s supporters claimed that a former president whose name was not mentioned and some other conspirators are behind the plot.
The group alleged that the conspirators under the guise of eminent persons planned to instigate an uprising to force the resignation of the president.
‘’Our highly reliable security sources have informed us of the determination of the former President to go ahead with a plan to cause disaffection in the country through a planned conference of so-called eminent Nigerians.
‘’While the Conference ostensibly aims to review the state of the nation, we can authoritatively confirm that it is actually a premeditated plan to create confusion in the polity by calling President Buhari to resign after a supposed vote of no confidence.''
The International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR) said the group warned those behind the alleged plot to save the country from avoidable crisis and civil unrest by dropping their plan.
In another news, President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed shock and sadness over the death of Ahmed Gulak, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain.
Gulak, a former political aide to former president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, was killed in Owerri on Sunday, May 30, by suspected gunmen on his way to the airport.
In a statement by his special adviser on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari described the death of Gulak as heinous and vowed that the murderers would not escape the long arms of the law.
