The Buhari Media Organisation has warned that any attempt to disrupt the May 29 inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term will be meet with stiff resistance.
The pro-Buhari group said it gave the warning in reaction to reports of plans by some people to disrupt the day’s proceedings.
It made its position known in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja by its chairman, Niyi Akinsiju; and secretary, Cassidy Madueke.
The group said any plan to disrupt Nigeria’s democracy that was fought for with the blood and sweat of patriotic Nigerians would be resisted and dealt with decisively.
It said, “It has come to our notice that some enemies of Nigeria, who do not respect the outcome of the largely peaceful elections recently held, are desperate to thwart the will of the Nigerian people and scuttle the May 29 inauguration of President Buhari’s second term.
“We are equally aware that security agencies are putting in place measures to apprehend these enemies of Nigeria.
“We wish to inform these unpatriotic persons that Nigerians who overwhelmingly voted for President Buhari would resist any such foolish and tactless move.”
The BMO restated that Buhari was a duly re-elected President.
It attributed what it called the massive goodwill Buhari was enjoying to his government’s projects that, it said, were lifting millions of Nigerians out of poverty.
“No matter where these undemocratic elements are planning and operating from, whether the United Arab Emirates, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, or Cameroon, the moon, wherever, they would be fished out and brought to justice,” the group said.
It added, “When the Peoples Democratic Party gathered themselves like witches in a coven in Dubai, to connive and attempt to seek votes through sinister moves, hideous agendas, and deceit, all their moves failed; they were rejected by the Nigerian people like the case in 2015.”
