Adewole Adebayo, presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the 2023 elections, says the call for an interim government is an act of “treason”.

On Wednesday, the Department of State Services (DSS) warned of a plot to install an interim government to stop Bola Tinubu from being inaugurated as president.

Peter Afunanya, public relations officer of the DSS, said the plot includes violent protests to achieve the declaration of a state of emergency and securing court injunctions against the inauguration.

Reacting on Thursday, Adebayo said the call for an interim government is synonymous with joining a terrorist group.

“Peaceful protest over elections is legitimate, even if unpleasant. Nigerians, especially youths, must avoid treason in promoting any so-called “interim government”, a high crime, on the same scale as joining Boko Haram, ISWAP, or any terror group. All gains will be lost,” he wrote on Twitter.
