lol. There is nothing like the plot thickens because the top military hierarchy always enjoy civilian dispensations more than
military regimes, especially under this APC emilokan government, moreover Nigeria's political elites have the same characters
either military or civilian - they are all corrupt and selfish.
Presently patriotism is a scarce commodity in Nigeria, so who is going to risk his assured comfort zone in the name of coup plots ?

It is not the top heirachy that does coup but mid level using low level officials

It could happen, but I have a strong notion that it would fail. Or rather it could birth something we ain't all prepared for.

It's the surest way to disintegration.. you think North will seize power again through Military coup d'etat and South will keep quiet?.. best they will get is Arewa republic to go and govern themselves.

Please who are they seizing power from, who really is the south. From the look of things only a section of the south will loose power from a military coup

I agree that wild jubilation will erupt if military takes over.

However , what can the people do if their jubilation turns to sorrow quickly if unfortunately military becomes worse than "this useless civilian government of APC" as you called it.

Sometimes , the Devil you know may actually be better than the Angel you wished for.

If you were alive and witness Idi Amin of Uganda, you will know that it is not easy to wrestle power out of the hands of an evil military dictator. No freedom of speech, no freedom of movement, no freedom of protest. No freedom of anything.

I will prefer this democracy in which we can change whoever is there every four years compared with a dictator who can forcefully stay there till he dies.


The western media deliberately demonized Idi Amin for his anti-west stand, the standard of living for the average Ugandan was way better under him, same with Libya and Ghadaffi.

Of what use is freedom of speech to people that cannot provide basic food and medicine for their families, the politicians are heartlessly looting the public treasury, the people are dying in hunger, elections are rigged in broad daylight with thugs armed by politicians, the security agencies look on helplessly as the people's wishes are overturned after elections with losers being announced as winners.




I have lived through 6 military administrations & 7 civilian governments and I can tell you for sure, military administrations are way better than this charade we call democracy, especially this APC brand of democracy

The powerhouse of the whole Nigeria of course.. the South West region of Nigeria.
You think this is 1993 when some group of Northerners in the Army ganged up to annul M.K.O Abiola's election he won fair and square.
There is a reason they said 'once bitten is twice shy'.. Highest Igbos and Hausa-Fulanis will continue their love affair in Nigeria.

One more coup and we should peacefully end the country. A mad man is described as one who does the same thing over and over hoping for a different result.

I agree with you, but the real power house are the oil companies hq in Victoria Island and the bank hq in Victoria Island and marina, once there is a coup detat and the new regime finds a way to relocate oil companies hq to niger delta and banks hq to Abuja then Lagos will be cut to size. The other companies in Lagos are bleeding profusely with mouth gaping losses and are likely to bite soon .mtn, dstv, nestle, Cadbury, Nigeria breweries, Guinness, international breweries are all bleeding, the telecommunications industry is almost dead

You make it seem as if there is one special thing with oil companies having headquarters in Lagos when infact they are in Lagos because of the business friendly and enabling environment put in place by Yorubas in Lagos State.
What stops Niger Delta leaders from utilizing their allocations, 13% derivation funds, NDDC funds etc. to develop their region to have a semblance of what city should be?. Instead they are busy stealing and looting commonwealth of their people while their youths take to militancy and pipeline vandalism.. Who is doing who??

If you have an oil company, I guess you'd prefer to situate your headquarters where militants and armed groups can attack at any time instead of looking for a more peaceful place to avoid stories that touch.

Note that I'm not advocating for breakup of Nigeria, just stating possible scenarios in the event of a coup d'etat.

you don't get the point because those you called mid level are also enjoying some privileges as military officers, that they are not willing to risk in the name of patriotism and coup plots .

Mumu talk.
I am from the southwest and I know for sure this idiot is speaking for himself and his family. If anything happens, all man to himself. And I am so certain 80% of southwesterners(remaining 20% are the agberos, those eating from the politicians tables, and idiots like the poster below) will mind their own business. No politician is feeding me. Let them go bring their family members now living large abroad to defend their stolen mandates

Re: Coups Succeed Because Of Politicians, Bad Governance - Abdulsalami Abubakar by GreenCovering: 5:54pm On Jun 02
The biggest losers in the advent of a coup in Nigeria today are the political opponents of this government. They will never have the chance to even dream of that position again ever. It is the collective responsibility of every Nigerian to defend democracy and let these expired old men know that they have no worth anymore because they are the ones who actually failed us when they had the chance to make impacts.

Meanwhile "Naira is falling, Naira is falling", is it the fault of the present government? Every sincere person who is current with the state of affairs knew six months ahead of the commencement of the present government that the Naira was going to fall and that its true value would be around N1500 to USD1. What the previous government was doing was simply papering over cracked walls repainting N500 to look like the old N200 and N200 to look like the old N100 etc to prepare everyone for the coming devaluation. There was no way out. The country had been bled and was shutting down from the evil of subsidising forex we didn't have enough of. We were in a vortex to self destruct and someone needed to take the hard decision.

It may be tough starting but the developmental projects once they start kicking in will assuage much of these negative feelings. Finally, may I let you know that most of these people who want the present government to go down only play on the peoples' interest while in reality they harbour their own hidden agenda (political, regional, tribal or whatever). Read between their lines.
