The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has faulted the statement by the Federal Government on alleged planned incitement to mutiny, describing it as unhelpful and doubtful fabrication.
The CNG observed that it was the height of ineptitude for an administration that has clearly failed on the manner it approaches sensitive matters such as security of citizens and glaring excesses of the administration’s officials to make such allegations.
“ This confirms the extent of its incompetence and lack of political will,” they alleged.
CNG in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, dismissed the news of an impending coup as a smokescreen intended to divert attention from the failure to acknowledge the huge demands being made for the President to address serious shortfalls in the nation’s policing and security institutions.
According to the groups, “It is a sad commentary that government should choose a time when the verdict from every section of the country is that many things are seriously wrong with our economy, national unity and security to come up with such allegations of a planned military takeover.
