Restructuring: We Will Not Succumb To Pressure – Presidency Fires Back At Adeboye

 

The Presidency has fired back on Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God over his comments on the need to restructure the country before it disintegrates.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu in a statement on Sunday said it will not respond to comments suggesting Nigeria is on the brink of disintegration if it does not “do one thing or another.”

Shehu said the President will only work “through and in line with the Parliamentary processes to finding solutions to structural and other impediments to the growth and wellbeing of the nation and its people.”

“The Presidency responds to the recurring threats to the corporate existence of the country with factions giving specific timelines for the President to do one thing or another or else, in their language, ‘the nation will break up.’”

“This is to warn that such unpatriotic outbursts are both unhelpful and unwarranted as this government will not succumb to threats and take any decision out of pressure at a time when the nation’s full attention is needed to deal with the security challenges facing it at a time of the Covid-19 health crisis.

“Repeat: this administration will not take any decision against the interests of 200 million Nigerians, who are the President’s first responsibility under the constitution, out of fear or threats especially in this hour of health crisis.

“The President as an elected leader under this constitution will continue to work with patriotic Nigerians, through and in line with the Parliamentary processes to finding solutions to structural and other impediments to the growth and wellbeing of the nation and its people.”
