President Muhammadu Buhari says a rude shock awaits those aiming at destroying the country through the promotion of insurrection and burning down of critical national assets, warning to desist now.

President Buhari said after he received a briefing from the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Mahmood Yakubu on series of attacks on facilities of the electoral body around the country.

The President said: “I receive daily security reports on the attacks, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail”.

“Insecurity in Nigeria is now mentioned all over the world. All the people who want power, whoever they are, you wonder what they really want. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.”

Buhari recalled that he visited all the 36 states of the country before the 2019 election, “and the majority of the people believed me and the election proved it”.

He promised to continue leading the country in accordance with Constitutional provisions.

He said those misbehaving in certain parts of the country were obviously too young to know the travails and loss of lives that attended the Nigerian Civil War.

“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand. We are going to be very hard sooner than later.”

The president said the service chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police have been changed, “and we will demand security from them.”
