The Presidency Tuesday urged Nigerians to ignore media reports on a Coup plot, saying there is no need for it to be stretched beyond what the military authorities had said.
NAN quoted Femi Adesina,the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity in a chat with State House Correspondents in Abuja saying that what the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai said about the issue was a “ routine warning” to military officers.
Speaking alongside the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu and Laolu Akande (office of the Vice President), Adesina said only the military are the ones that “can give us the definitive position and they have spoken about it”
He debunked the reports and assertions that the ruling party had failed in fulfilling its political obligations and promises to the electorate in view of the hardships being experienced by many Nigerians. Adesina said it was totally unfair to pass judgment or asses the performance of the Buhari administration within two years.
He said much as people can express their opinions,there is no scientific survey that has the percentage of people that believed that the APC has failed.
“The second point is that, when a government via a party is voted into office, it is voted for a four year term under our own democratic arrangement”
He said “ When You have spent two years using a small part to determine the whole. You can’t write a report card of this administration when it is just hitting the half way mark. That will not be fair”
The Presidential spokesman said “ this administration will take Nigeria far beyond how it met it. If anybody says APC has failed just tell them it is too early because it is a four year term and this is just two years. You don’t reach definitive conclusions in two years”
