Ohanaeze Ndigbo, an Igbo socio-cultural organization, amid calls from some quarters supporting an installation of an interim government, has vowed to support the inauguration of the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said the call for an interim government is Satanic and demonic.
Isiguzoro has called on the Department of State Services (DSS), to arrest any found guilty of supporting an interim government.
Isiguzoro said, “Ndigbo will never be part of any interim government; the DSS should arrest those behind the scene plotting to have an interim government.
“Ohanaeze challenges the DSS to arrest those who are the proponent of the interim government to ensure that unpatriotic elements of doom do not derail our democracy with the evil intent to stall the smooth transition of power from Buhari to Tinubu.
“Ndigbo will not recognize any interim government or be part of any evil scheme and clamour for an interim government. The clamour for an interim government is unconstitutional, satanic, and demonic; those behind the call are trying to plunge the country into an unavoidable crisis and make Ndigbo a scapegoat, as witnessed in 1993.
“Ndigbo will participate in all inauguration and swearing-in ceremony of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu. We caution those working behind the scene for an illegitimate government to use the court to express their grievances.
“We are happy that Atiku and Peter Obi have exploited the legal options in order to recover their legal mandate. We will not allow unpatriotic mortals to truncate the hard-earned democracy in Nigeria.
“Ndigbo condemns both in words and letters the call for the establishment of an interim government and insists that the President-elect should be sworn in by May 29, 2023.”
