We’ll Resist Coup Plotters – Tinubu

National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu says the nation will never allow the military to rule again, vowing that coup plotters will be resisted.

Tinubu spoke on Monday at the Special Parliamentary Session to mark Lagos at 50 celebration at the State House of Assembly, Ikeja, Lagos.

He said Nigeria had gone too far to allow a thing like military coup to happen again, as such move would be resisted at all cost.

Tinubu said the news was everywhere that some people were trying to entice the military out of the barrack to stage a coup, stressing that such move would be resisted.

He said those who thought they could scuttle the democracy for which many died and sacrificed their lives for were surely mistaken as Nigeria had gone too far for such a thing to happen.

The APC chieftain said Lagos would never provide a fertile ground for coup plotters to hatch their evil ideas, saying that the state would resist such move.

“Some people have been trying to entice the military out of the barrack. I want to lend my voice to this, those who think they can break democracy for which many died, sacrificed their lives are surely mistaken.

“Nigeria has come too far for that thing to happen, those people will find no fertile ground to plant their seed in Lagos, we will not buy their product, it is a bad product, we will reject it, Lagos will resist it, move away from it,” he said.
