The Nigerian Unity Forum (NUF) and Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition (PANPIEC), have warned against any threat to democracy in the country.
The groups insisted that myriads of security challenges bedevilling the nation were a result of the absence of good leadership in Nigeria.
The groups, however, cautioned against any military coup that could truncate the current democratic system in the country.
They stressed that a military regime was no longer in vogue in the world and advised the military to subject itself to civilian governance.
NUF and PANPIEC gave the warning following the security crisis in the country and calls for a military takeover by a respected lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Robert Clarke.
DAILY POST recalls that a legal luminary, Robert Clarke had berated the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government over worsening insecurity in the country.
Clarke had advocated a temporary takeover and restructuring of Nigeria.
Continuing, the Secretary-General of NUF, Barrister Musa Maigoro and PANPIEC Director of Media and Publicity, Prince Uche Erondu in a statement jointly signed and made available to DAILY POST on Friday, called on Nigerians not to allow any negative tendency to lead to the break up of the nation as such will be devastating to blacks and Africans all over the world.
The sociopolitical groups urged anti-democratic forces to sheathe their sword in the interest of Nigeria.
They posited that Nigeria’s problems cannot be solved through military coups which are no longer fashionable.
The organizations further called on President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to resolve the challenges facing the country especially security and cost of governance.
Meanwhile, the Defence Headquarters in Abuja had said the Armed Forces of Nigeria remained fully committed to the present administration and all associated democratic institutions.
A statement by Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director of Defence Information, noted that the military shall continue to remain apolitical, subordinate to the civil authority, firmly loyal to the Commander-in-Chief, President Buhari and the 1999 Constitution as amended.
