Garba Shehu who is the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity has said that nobody can bring down the Buhari-led government down. Garba said this when he appeared on Channels TV ON Friday, March 26th.
Due to the level of insecurity in the country, there have been agitations by secessionist groups calling for the removal of the Buhari government. According to Garba, nobody can bring the government down because it is a government elected democratically.
“I want to assure Nigerians that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is addressing multiple challenges that are facing the country especially in dealing with security and yet we are still making progress in agriculture, economy, anti-corruption.
It is sad for the country that opposition is exploiting some of these things. It is quite unfortunate and I want to assure that the president remains focused in preserving the security and unity of this country.
We accept that dissent is allowed, this is a democracy and people have a right to tell truth to government but we must be careful in doing that. Nobody can bring down the government because this is a government elected democratically.
Government in a democracy come through periodic elections and if we have a government in office as we have, sponsored by political parties to win the elections, it is telling you that that confidence of the public is still there.
People with strong ambitions, wait till four years, in fact, in our case, two more years to go to election and President Buhari will not be a candidate in that election” he said
