…alleges deliberate plot by terrorists’ nations
As preparations heat up ahead of the 2019 general elections, Nigerians have been warned to be wary of some aspirants under foreign influence.
The Coalition Against Terrorism and Extremism’s (CATE), while handing down this warning, alleged that there are deliberate plots by terrorists nations to destabilize the peaceful existence of Nigeria.
National President of the group, Comrade Gabriel Onoja, who gave this warning at a press conference on Tuesday, expressed shocks at what he termed fabulous fabrication of lies packaged and sold to the public.
Onoja said it is sad that while America, Britain, Russia or any foreign country would not accept external campaign funds for any of its Presidential aspirants; some are going round the world, collecting monies from both friends and foes of Nigeria to bankroll campaigns.
“This act alone has signified the intention to mortgage the sovereignty of Nigeria to these nations. No nation on earth tolerates this aberration and Nigerians cannot accept neo-colonialism in this crude form,” the CATE leader lamented.
Continuing, he said: “Nigerians should be aware that there are agents of darkness and evil who have no good agenda for our country, now and in the future. And we shall be making a grave mistake to believe their rantings and campaigns of destruction.
“We must resist Nigerians who reside abroad and turn their backs to realities at home because they have access to foreign funding to set Nigeria on fire through their fabrication of lies and promotion of falsehood to ruin the country. They are bent on instigating uprisings and compounding the violence which is being handled, ahead of 2019 for the sole motivation of truncating the country’s democratic journey.
