The Defence Headquarters yesterday said it has remained loyal to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Mr President and will not be part of move to derail democracy.
This assertion was made in a statement by the deputy director, Defence Information Navy Capt Muhammad Ahmed Wabi while reacting to a seditious public by Nigerian Continuity and Progress (NCP) group calling for support to oust the current government and establish an interim one.
“The Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) wishes to dissociates itself from the rascality and intentions as espoused in a document being circulated by a faceless group named Nigerian Continuity and Progress (NCP) calling for support of a revolution to oust the current democratically elected government and in its place establish an illegitimate interim government,” he said
He added “The AFN outrightly condemns the undemocratic and demonic actions of the author of the document.
“The AFN remains unflinchingly loyal to the Constitution, as well as to President Muhammadu Buhari, President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,”
He reiterated that noted the Armed Forces “ is very mindful of its constitutional responsibilities and will not be misled into any act that will undermine democracy as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.
He therefore called on members of the public to discountenance the content of the documents being circulated by NCP and “equally condemned in totality, the call to derail our hard earned democracy”.
He further noted that all relevant Law Enforcement Agency have been advised to unravel those behind the seditious document for appropriate actions.
