Stop The Joke About Interim Government, Elections Will Hold by presidency: 4:25pm On Feb 17, 2023
Joseph Goebbels, the propaganda Chief of Adolf Hitler said ‘‘Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth’’. This was in the 1930s, before the internet was birthed.

Let us clearly, specifically and emphatically state that there is absolutely no truth to the claim that President Muhammadu Buhari is working towards an interim government or even worse, the truncation of democracy- democracy that he has helped to keep alive not only here at home, in West Africa but throughout the continent.

The talk of interim government and truncation of democracy is way off the mark. Those who peddle it stand to gain nothing- nothing at all -but the creation of panic and the incitement of the public against the federal government.

It is another dangerous dimension by people who are afraid that they may lose their elections.

Everybody is aware that there is a lot of pressure on everyone-all of us- the party, its elected officials, its candidates and law enforcement agencies following the way the currency swap has gone but the way to go is not to panic.

There is indeed a problem and nobody will pretend that it doesn’t exist.

It is precisely because the President is concerned with this problem that he opened several avenues for consultation with leaders and groups across the country, culminating in his broadcast to the nation on Thursday morning.

In line with the speech, his clear and unequivocal directive is that the problem of cash supply must be addressed without delay.

While this is being done, there is no need to panic. We need to work together as leaders; as a people and as one nation. When panic hits, people go into overdrive. Shouting helps no one because no one can listen.

The solution to the problem is not in sending Nigerians into confusion.

Elections, just a week ahead, will hold and Nigerians will vote for the All Progressives Congress, APC, (and any others if they so wish) on the basis of their choice.

Our people want progress, good governance, law and order and will not be swayed by the negative energy that is being expended against a well-meaning currency change.

Finally, to state that: the President clearly has a favoured successor in Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is not in doubt.

The fact that Tinubu has been opposed to the speed and timing of the Naira swap timetable does not mean he is against the idea of Nigeria becoming a cashless society. Of course, Tinubu does support a cashless society: for he is a man of the future.

What should be made crystal clear to the doubters and the speculators and the untruth-tellers is that in no way was the naira swap “engineered” to keep the President in office beyond May 29. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The President looks forward to handing over the reins of power to his elected successor. This will happen on May 29, 2023 as the Constitution requires it.

The days of unelected Nigerian leaders, and those who outstay their welcome by unconstitutionally extending it, have gone.

Mr Femi Adesina, have you seen how the people are suffering to get their money from banks?

I currently don’t have any cash on me to get back home after work today, and I’ve practically walked the whole of isheri, no POS got cash to dispense.

Our banks are overcrowded

Question remains why didn’t Buhari implement this policy early last year, maybe by now the dust would have settled?

Why raise the dust few months to election if truly Buhari had no plans for an interim government?

This is a logical thing sir and you cannot fault people that assume you people had a plan for an interim government.

Same political party pointing accusing fingers at themselves.. .
Then one begins to wonder why those who are not directly gaining/benefiting anything from these people still support them on reasons such as ethnicity and religion...
It beats one's imagination that a couple of days ago some people were hailing Tinubu as having the guts to confront the government based on his stance against the currency redesigning policy and its implementation...as well as the fuel scarcity... That it's solely because of the masses, well, the masses are truly feeling the heat, but it is obvious some are crying more than the bereaved.
Tinubu at a campaign outing in 2023 openly accused the regime of taking exchange rate from N170 something to over N700; fuel from N87 to...
Since when has he noticed the failures of the administration, why didn't he call them out or at least speak out all these years?
Right from inception in 2015,after swearing in, it has been from one blame to the other...
Now some people want us to believe/trust those openly accusing themselves...and to reward them by voting them in again... Funny!
Garba Shehu has now responded, awaiting another from Mallam El rufai again. Interesting times ahead.

There won't be any interim government. Peter Gregory Obi will win his election on 25th February and Sworn in on May 29th. Nothing will stop it as God almighty has already ordained it

Those screaming interim government are afraid of election taking place on 25th February. They are heating up the polity so that the election can be shifted so they can restrategise and possibly mop up some cash for vote buying.

They have to shout because they don't trust Buhari again. He is a Major General for crying out loud. If they trust him they will not be cracking jokes.
Only those who copy MKO Abiola campaign slogan have cause to fear. As it is now they are on their toes.
