The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) yesterday challenged the Department of State Services (DSS) to name those it claimed were plotting to truncate the May 29 inauguration of the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and enthrone an interim government.
The DSS had, in a statement on Wednesday by its spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said it had identified politicians behind the plot.
In a chat with Daily Trust on Thursday, CDD Director, Idayat Hassan, asked the DSS not to heighten tension in the country.
“It’s worrying to see citizens calling for interim national government, especially close to 24 years of uninterrupted democracy. Actors need to be patient and ensure the full course of the law is served by exhausting all legal remedies.
“The DSS should go ahead to calm tension and avoid heightening tension,” she said.
