Afenifere Warns Buhari Against Interim Government
The apex Yoruba socio cultural organisation,
Afenifere, has warmed President Muhammadu Buhari against yielding to the ploy to foist an interim national government on Nigerians.
Afenifere in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Jare Ajayi, said the latest call was necessitated by a disclosure by Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State that some elements within the Presidency were scheming to have the President foist an Interim Government on Nigerians.
“We are making this call because of the sacrifices we, along with many other Nigerians dead and alive, have made to ensure that we have a civil rule. We are happy that we have had about 24 years of civil rule and six transitions between one civilian administration to another since 1999. There is no doubt that we can have better administrations and that we are desirous of having a change.
But that change must be through democratic means as enshrined in our constitution. It is in this respect anything that could prompt the change of government through any other means is unacceptable”.
