'Nothing will happen'- Military speaks on inauguration of Tinubu

The Military High Command has reiterated that the May 29, 2023 hand over of power from President Muhammadu Buhari to the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, will hold successfully without any disruption.

Director, Defence Media Operations, Major General Musa Danmadami, gave the assurance while answering questions from journalists after the bi-weekly press briefing on activities of the military on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the police and other security agencies were working hand-in-hand to neutralise any possible threat to the inauguration of Tinubu as president.

He added that military officers will forestall any unwanted happening in the country before, during and after the transition billed to hold at the end of the month.

“As far as internal security is concerned, the police still remain the lead agency. The Armed Forces and other security operatives are only playing a supportive role. I will reiterate that we are on standby to make sure that nothing unwanted happens.

“The issue of threat to the security and stability of the country is addressed promptly. Elections have come and gone. For the presidential election, a winner has been announced.

“There is a transition committee in place comprising all members of the security agencies, ministries and agencies of government to make sure the event is held successfully and without a glitch.

“We don’t see reasons why there should be a problem during the activity. The inauguration will come and go and nothing will happen. We are not going to relent at ensuring there is peace and stability across the length and breath of the country,” the DHQ spokesperson stated.
