Tinubu Revives Coup Fears,Says Some People Want To Abort Nigeria’s Democracy

Former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu on Sunday urged Nigerians to be vigilant, warning that some persons want to snatch democracy from them.



Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said this in his message on Democracy Day and second year of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Tinubu’s comment may not be unconnected with fears that there might be a coup plot.

Recall that Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, less than two weeks ago, said he received information that some individuals were approaching some officers and soldiers for political reasons.

The APC chieftain, in a statement by his media office, said ”Democracy Day and our commemoration of it must be more than an empty ritual. It must add up to more than another reason to have another holiday.


”We, as a people, choose democracy as our preferred form of governance not because it would be easy to achieve or to hold even once we have it.

”We choose democracy because history has taught us that the welfare of the people is best and perhaps only secured by government responsive and accountable to the people. This can only be democracy.

”Many Nigerians have fought and sacrificed to enshrine democracy as our way of governance. We mark this day in honour of these people, many of whom laboured in obscurity and without proper thanks, to achieve this precious thing for the nation.


”We mark this day to keep in remembrance that we must not take this good form of government for granted. We must keep and nurture it, not for democracy’s sake, but for our own sake.

”We must remember that should we fall asleep, there are those who would like nothing better than to take our democracy from us,” he said

Coup bawo?we refuse to be cowed by military men. The worst democracy is better than having the military at the helm of affairs

Thank you!

In as much as military rule is bad some of these political thieves would not have had the guts to steal monies belonging to the masses...

I am told in Ghana market women who sold above control price were flogged between their thighs,though it's barbaric but people need it to reset their brains!

You are right. Very unruly tribalistic beings. Nigetians need iron hand but the only fear is even the military has been compromised.

We honestly don't need this people running this country. They all need to be wipe off from the face of the planet for peace to reign.
Too many people involved in democracy ( house of rep and the senate). And each one of them wants to become a billionaire at the expense of the. country. The military need to please take over and seize over their ill gotten wealth

No matter how compromised the military were, I in comparable to this bunch of rcorruot thieves that we have now. I have never seen a country where the country was so bad that they are begging the military to take over. We need a patriotic Nigerian do for this country what Jerry Rawlings did for Ghana many years ago
