Adesina speaks on alleged coup plot
Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, has urged Nigerians to ignore the media reports on coup plot.
Adesina said what the Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Tukur Burutai, said about the issue was a “routine warning that goes to military officers.’’
Recall that Buratai, last week, said he received information that some individuals were approaching some officers and soldiers for political reasons.
Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, Director, Army Public Relations, said on the basis of that, Buratai “has warned such persons to desist from these acts”.
According to Adesina: “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.
“Let’s take that position and not stretch it beyond what the military has said, because they are the ones that can give us the definitive position and they have spoken on it.’’
