Balarabe Musa warns military over coup plot


News

Elder statesman and a former Governor of the old Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, has warned the military personnel against hijacking power from the politicians, urging Nigerians to resist any attempt to remove the current democratic government by force.


The elder statesman said the Nigerian Army is a thorough professional, disciplined, loyal and an apolitical institution that has clear constitutional roles and responsibilities.


It will be recalled that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, had last week warned some top politicians to stop “approaching officers and soldiers for political reasons,” a development which people believe could be a plot to overthrow the current political dispensation in the country.


Also Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other eminent Nigerians had issued stern warnings, saying Nigerians would vehemently revolt any attempt at truncating the fledgling democracy.
