Amid alleged calls for a coup in the country, a former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, believes Nigeria’s democracy is redeemable.
DAILY POST recalls that the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) recently insisted that the military is happy and there were no plans for a coup in Nigeria.
Speaking on Friday, the DHQ Director, Defence Information, Tukur Gusau, frowned at reports claiming there were welfare issues within the armed forces of Nigeria, adding that the report in circulation was calling on the military to interfere in the democracy of the country.
However, in a post on his social media platform on Monday, Sani urged countrymen advocating, soliciting or inciting a coup in the country to stop.
Also a social critic, he noted that the struggle for a just, equitable and more prosperous society could still be won within the context of democracy.
He wrote, “Our democracy can still be redeemed or refined. The struggle for a just, equitable and more prosperous society can still be won within the context of democracy. Our Countrymen, pls stop advocating, soliciting or inciting for a coup in Nigeria.”
