Presidency explains why Tinubu will continue intervening in states’ crises

The Presidency has said that President Bola Tinubu’s intervention in states battling political crises may not end anytime soon.

Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, stated this while reacting to recent criticisms against Tinubu’s interventions in Ondo and Rivers.

Ngelale said President Tinubu will continue to intervene in state’s political crisis in the larger interest of the country.

“That has nothing to do with, of course, political development, destabilisation of a particular region or state or subnational entity that could potentially turn into a national conflagration,” Ngelale told ChannelsTV on Monday evening.

“If the President sees that, he is not going to sit by as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and fold his hands and keep quiet. I think that is what he has done.

“That is to say if you are the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and your primary objective is to make sure that the Nigerian people are safe; that they are able to operate in an environment that is stable and does not place them in any form of insecurity, then you know that if a political crisis is devolving into something that is generating manmade insecurity, then the President needs to step in and he took that wise decision to step in,” he added.
