A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Diran Odeyemi, on Thursday, said the claim by the Department of State Security that some people wanted to foist an interim government on the country was suspicious.

Odeyemi, while speaking with newsmen in Osogbo, expressed concern that more than a week after the claim, the security organisation has not made any arrest or exposed those behind the plot.

He also said such a claim coming from the DSS had made the Federal Government the number one suspect, noting that it may allegedly be a plot by the presidency.

According to him, politicians in the country have shown that they wanted democracy to continue, hence why the presidential candidates that lost at the poll approached the tribunal for redress.

“If after almost a week after which they made that statement, we have not heard of any arrest, or any concrete investigation thereafter, I will advise them not to turn themselves to a political party. Nigerians should watch out for the presidency.

“They might be the ones flying the kit. As it appears, politicians believe in democracy and do not believe in outside constitutional means of changing government which is the reason why all the presidential candidates approach the court and their supporters are dancing around the street in the form of a protest.

“The issue of interim government coming from the DSS is like the Federal Government planning a coup against itself and they should not bring politicians into it. Irrespective of any political party politicians belong to, we still believe in democracy and not any interim arrangement. If the DSS have any contrary view to this, they should bring out the arrest they have made. Their claim appears suspicious,” Odeyemi said.
