Presidency Breaks Silence On Coup Rumors
Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, has urged Nigerians to ignore the media reports on Coup plot, saying it should not be stretched beyond what the military authorities had said.
Mr. Adesina said: “The Army has spoken and let us take that position. What the Chief of Army Staff said was a routine warning that goes to military officers, don’t hobnob with politicians and the army has explained the position.
He went on to praise Buhari’s human rights record.
“Journalists in this country ought to bear testimony on this, there is no single journalist that has been expelled from his duty because he has reported or failed to report, there is no single journalist who is in government detention because they have expressed some views that the government does not like.”
Laolu Akande, who spoke on alleged weak prosecution of corruption cases across the country, said, “The truth of the matter is that our criminal justice system does need a profound and deep reform.
