FG debunks report of coup scare in Nigeria

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has debunked a news report of a so-called coup scare in the country, stressing that the report is unequivocally false, and is a heinous act of disinformation.

In a statement released today February 27, the Minister said the report is the figment of the warped imagination of detractors, whose malicious intent is to destabilize the country and undermine the present administration.

Idris said the government would neither be distracted nor intimidated into abandoning the ongoing reforms aimed at rejuvenating the economy and creating a pathway of prosperity for the citizenry.

The Minister said it is now evident that some desperate individuals have resorted to publishing fake news to erode public trust in the government and sow the seed of discord in the country. He added that the Federal government will exercise its rights within the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s laws to contain rogue actions to destabilize national security and the nation’s hard-earned democracy.

He urged the public to exercise discernment and refrain from spreading or amplifying the unfounded report, which is being strategically planted on some pliant and compromised news platforms to subvert the nation’s democracy
