The military has said that its officers are prepared to prevent any unwanted incidents in the country before, during, and after the transition.
The army warned to plotting to scuttle the ceremony to shelve their plans.
Maj.-Gen. Musa Danmadami, Director of Defence Media Operation, issued the warning while speaking with journalists after a press briefing.
Two weeks prior, the Defence Headquarters had announced its intention to track down anyone attempting to destabilize the country during the inauguration.
Danmadami stated that the military has seen no reason why the inauguration of President-elect Bola Tinubu would not proceed as planned.
Although the police are the primary agency responsible for internal security, the armed forces and other security personnel play a supportive role.
Danmadami emphasized that the military is prepared to ensure that nothing unexpected occurs.
“As far as internal security is concerned, the police still remain the lead agency. The armed forces and other security operatives are only playing a supportive role. I will reiterate that we are on standby to make sure that nothing unwanted happens.”
“The issue of threat to the security and stability of the country is addressed promptly. Elections have come and gone. For the presidential election, a winner has been announced.
“There is a transition committee in place comprising all members of the security agencies, ministries and agencies of government to make sure the event is held successfully and without a glitch.
“We don’t see reasons why there should be a problem during the activity. The inauguration will come and go and nothing will happen. We are not going to relent at ensuring there is peace and stability across the length and breath of the country,” the senior military officer said.
