Tinubu accuses Buhari's aides of planning interim national govt
The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Friday, February 3, alleged moves by some people in the corridor of power to foist an interim national government on Nigeria.
According to the former Lagos state governor, the plotters hope to achieve their objective by provoking Nigerians through the crisis arising from the naira notes redesign and the current fuel scarcity.
He said the plotters were working on the theory that the possible unrest sparked by the crisis would force the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the coming elections and proceed to install an interim national government.
