The Coalition of Northern Groups has tasked security agencies, as well as anti-graft agents, to go after “destabilising forces” against the handover of government on May 29.
The group, in a statement signed on Thursday by the group’s spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said security agents must ensure that the Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, and other key office holders, do not “sneak out” before the handover of government on May 29.
Punch reports that Expressing concern over reported plans to scuttle the scheduled handover events, the group said the nation’s apex security agencies, such as the Directorate of State Services, the military and the Nigeria Police Force had shown no “visible proactive measures.”
The group requested that key officeholders in the Buhari government clear themselves of all pending corruption and other allegations against them and demanded the cancellation of any study leave granted to the CBN governor in the interest of accountability.
