DSS confirm plot to install interim Government, scuttle handover to Tinubu
The Department of State Security Services (DSS) has released a statement confirming reports of a plot to install an interim government in Nigeria and prevent the handover to President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The DSS has identified key players in the plot and considers it a threat to democracy and civil rule.
The planners have considered various options, including sponsoring violent protests and obtaining frivolous court injunctions.
The DSS supports a peaceful and seamless inauguration on May 29, 2023, and warns those organizing to thwart democracy to retract from their devious schemes.
The DSS urges stakeholders, including judicial authorities, media, and civil society, to be watchful and cautious to avoid being used as instruments to subvert peace and stability in the nation.
The DSS will take necessary legal steps against these misguided elements to frustrate their obnoxious intentions.
Below is a statement from the Service signed by its spokesperson, Peter Afunanya (Ph.D.).
“The Department of State Services (DSS) has identified some key players in the plot for an Interim Government in Nigeria. The Service considers the plot, being pursued by these entrenched interests, as not only an aberration but a mischievous way to set aside the constitution and undermine civil rule as well as plunge the country into an avoidable crisis. The illegality is totally unacceptable in a democracy and to peace-loving Nigerians. This is even more so that the machination is taking place after the peaceful conduct of the elections in most parts of the country.”
“The planners, in their many meetings, have weighed various options, which include, among others, to sponsor endless violent mass protests in major cities to warrant a declaration of State of Emergency. Another is to obtain frivolous court injunctions to forestall the inauguration of new executive administrations and legislative houses at the Federal and State levels.”
“The DSS supports the President and Commander-in-Chief in his avowed commitment to a hitch-free handover and will assiduously work in this direction. It also supports the Presidential Transition Council and such other related bodies in the States. It will collaborate with them and sister security and law enforcement agencies to ensure seamless inaugurations come 29th May, 2023.”
“Consequently, the Service strongly warns those organising to thwart democracy in the country to retract from their devious schemes and orchestrations.”
“Stakeholders, notably judicial authorities, media and the Civil Society, are enjoined to be watchful and cautious to avoid being used as instruments to subvert peace and stability of the nation. While its monitoring continues, the DSS will not hesitate to take decisive and necessary legal steps against these misguided elements to frustrate their obnoxious intentions.”
