The Defence Headquarters on Thursday has issued a fresh warning to anyone preparing to thwart or disrupt the inauguration of President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu come May 29.
Maj.-Gen. Musa Danmadami, the Director of the Defense Media Operation, disclosed this at bi-weekly press briefing in Abuja.
He said the military had not found any justifications for why the inauguration could not take place.
His word, “As far as internal security is concerned, the police still remain the lead agency. The Armed Forces and other security operatives are only playing a supportive role. I want to reiterate that we’re on standby to make sure that nothing unwanted happens.
“On the issue of threats to the nation’s security and stability, we’re ready to act promptly. Elections have already taken place and the winner has been announced.
“There is a transition committee in place comprising all members of the security agencies, ministries and agencies of government to make sure the event is held successfully and without a glitch.
“We don’t see reasons why there should be a problem during the activity. The inauguration will come and go and nothing will happen.
“We are not going to relent at ensuring there is peace and stability across the length and breadth of the country,” he said.
“Whether we like it or not, sentiment will always come up, particularly when things are not favorable to your disposition. As it is normal in the military, when such allegations are raised, a board of inquiry would be raised to investigate the allegations,” he added.
