Nigeria’s Hardship: CDS Musa Addresses Calls for Coup


The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa, has revealed that some individuals are calling for a military coup in Nigeria amid the economic hardship the country is experiencing.

Musa, describing such individuals as enemies of the country, assured that a coup would not happen in Nigeria. Instead, he disclosed that the military would pursue those advocating for a coup and ensure they face the wrath of the law.

The CDS made this statement on Wednesday shortly after inaugurating the main entrance of the 6 Division, Nigerian Army, and Officers Transit Accommodation at the Division Headquarters in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

He reiterated the military’s commitment to its constitutional duties of protecting the nation’s territorial integrity and further pledged the Armed Forces’ commitment to safeguarding Nigeria’s democracy.

According to the CDS: “Whoever is making that call for a coup does not love Nigeria. We want to make it clear that the Armed Forces of Nigeria are here to protect democracy. We all want democracy, and we do better under democracy. So, we will continue to support democracy.


Anyone calling for anything other than democracy is an evil person and, I think, does not mean well for Nigeria. They should be careful because the law will come after them. We can see that with democracy, a lot of things are happening in Nigeria. Yes, we are going through trying periods; I mean, in life, nothing is a hundred percent.”

Musa stated that the federal government is focused on addressing the current economic challenges across the country and appealed to Nigerians to exercise patience.

He said: “Everybody goes through a trying period in life, and it is what you do with them. You can see the government putting efforts to ensure that we come out better. When you go through difficulties and come out better, you will appreciate what it is to build a nation.

So, we are going through our trying period, but I can assure Nigerians that it will get better. All we need is for everyone to put our hands together to ensure that we defeat those enemies of the government, those enemies of this country that don’t want us to succeed.


We will surely succeed, and the Armed Forces are here to support the government in ensuring that we develop, we succeed, and to see that there is peace in Nigeria.”
