Presidency says Buhari administration will not succumb to threats, undue pressure


The Presidency said administration of President Muhammadu Buhari would not succumb to threats and undue pressure.

Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, said this in a statement in which he was responding to the recurring threats to the corporate existence of the country with factions, giving specific timelines for the President to do one thing or another or else, in their language, “the nation will break up.”

“This is to warn that such unpatriotic outbursts are both unhelpful and unwarranted as this government will not succumb to threats and take any decision out of pressure at a time when the nation’s full attention is needed to deal with the security challenges facing it at a time of the Covid-19 health crisis.

“Repeat: this administration will not take any decision against the interests of 200 million Nigerians, who are the President’s first responsibility under the constitution, out of fear or threats especially in this hour of health crisis,” Shehu said.

He added that the President, as an elected leader under this constitution, would continue to work with patriotic Nigerians, through and in line with the Parliamentary processes to finding solutions to structural and other impediments to the growth and wellbeing of the nation and its people.
