A renowned Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Dr Olisa Agbakoba, has sent a message to Nigerians.
He asked Nigerians to resist the purported interim government plot.
Agbakoba made the call in a statement on Thursday while reacting to the Department of Service Secret report on a plot to establish an interim government.
He said all Nigerians should refute the Interim Government unequivocally because it is unconstitutional.
Agbakoba said Nigeria’s security agency should punish plotters of an interim government intended to truncate the nation’s democratic process.
He added that despite the challenging circumstances experienced in last month’s presidential election, the president-elect’s emergence should be respected pending the election tribunal decision on claims of irregularities.
“We must all reject this nonsense and respect our Constitution, which has no provision for interim arrangements.
“All leading Presidential candidates have approached the courts with grounds of complaint concerning what they consider as electoral irregularities.
“If the presidential candidates have accepted the democratic process by lodging petitions before the courts, then it is challenging to understand upon what basis anyone considers that an interim government is a viable and legal alternative”, he stated.
