Insurrection: Count Us Out — Labour Party

The Labour Party has stated that it should not be linked to plans of insurrection following an alarm raised by the Department of State Services (DSS).

In a recent statement, DSS alleged that there is an ongoing plot to install an interim government, with former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode harping on the need to aid the security outfit in its quest to prevent it.

Speaking on the insurrection plan, Labour Party spokesman Yunusa Tanko said the party has nothing to do with it.

“We are not part of any insurrection plans whatsoever”, he stated during an appearance on Channels TV's 'Lunch Time Politics' on Thursday.

“But what I am saying is that we would protect the interest of Nigerian people based on the provisions of the law which provides that where you are hurting, you have the right to protest and that you would do so with the defence and protection of the Nigerian security apparatus.

“That is what we would do but we would not support any insurrection in any way.

“The DSS and the security agencies should come out and protect us even if we are on the streets protesting.

“We are ready to follow the rules and laws of the democratic setting”, Tanko added.
