The Labour Party (LP) spokesman, Yunusa Tanko, on Thursday, said the party has no part in any insurrection plan.
The party’s spokesman made this known in an interview on Channels Television’s Lunch Time Politics, on Thursday, while responding to the statement released by DSS.
The Department of State Services (DSS) had raised an alarm over a plot to scuttle the democratic process and install an interim government. The agency’s spokesman, Peter Afunanya, in a statement said that the secret police has identified some key players in the plan.
Reacting to the development, the Labour Party’s spokesman explained that the party is not plotting any insurrection and is strongly against any act of conspiracy against the state.
“We are not part of any insurrection plans whatsoever.
“But what I am saying is that we would protect the interest of Nigerian people based on the provisions of the law which provides that where you are hurting, you have the right to protest and that you would do so with the defence and protection of the Nigerian security apparatus. That is what we would do but we would not support any insurrection in any way.” The Labour Party spokesman explained.
