The Defence Headquarters on Thursday described the call for interim government by some individuals in the country as unfortunate and unconstitutional.
Major General Musa Danmadami, Director, Defence Media Operations, stated this while addressing newsmen at the bi-weekly briefing on military operations across Nigeria in Abuja.
Danmadami insisted that those calling for an interim government were just trying to be mischievous, saying that the Constitution didn’t provide for an interim national government.
He said: “On the issue of interim government, it is rather unfortunate. An election has been conducted and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced a president-elect.
“It’s not our responsibility to speak on that issue, but I know that several calls have been made from the Presidency that there’s nothing like an interim national government.
“So I think people were just trying to be mischievous. It’s unconstitutional and all of us know that. The Constitution doesn’t provide for an interim national government and that is the point the Presidency has been hammering on and that’s our stand.”
