Senator Ken Nnamani-led Good Governance Group (3G) yesterday warned against any attempt by the military to intervene in the current constitutional crisis created by the return of ailing President Umaru Musa Yar’adua.
Mr Salihu Lukman, who addressed newsmen in Abuja on the state of the nation, berated the manner in which President Yaradua was brought to the country without proper clearance with the Acting President Goodluck Jonathan who is still the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
The group said the various reported acts of intimidation against Jonathan in the Villa, posed serious threat to stability and national unity, saying ‘no to ‘Illegal’ Exercise of Presidential Power’.
It said those impeding the effective exercise of executive powers by the Acting President Jonathan are violating the constitution and will be made to answer to their treasonable acts.
“Nigerian people will not accept any military solution to a crisis contrived by those who do not want to lose power because they are afraid of being made to account for their misdeeds,” the group said.
We will continue to mobilize Nigerians to insist on respect for the constitution, especially Section 1 of the Constitution.
