The spokesman of the Labour Party (LP), Yunusa Tanko, says the party is not part of any plan to truncate Nigeria’s democracy.
The Department of State Services (DSS) had on Wednesday claimed that there was a plot to derail the democratic process and install an interim government.
Reacting, the Labour Party’s spokesman said the party is not plotting any insurrection, describing the development as a conspiracy against the state.
“We are not part of any insurrection plans whatsoever,” he said on Channels Television’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.”
