This is coming against the backdrop of reported attempted coup on Tinubu’s administration due to the current economic hardship.

But, the Nigerian military had dismissed the possibility of such a coup in Nigeria, stressing that they were in support of Tinubu and democracy.

However, Isiguzoro emphasized the critical need for political stability in Nigeria.

In a statement he signed, Isiguzoro said: “We pledge steadfast allegiance to the democratically elected Federal government under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s leadership. Ndigbo has shown unwavering faith in his administration despite attempts to instigate Igbo protests against Tinubu.

“This message serves as a firm condemnation of coup rumours and a stark warning to those spreading disunity, discord, and disruption – elements who fuel hardship and economic sabotage.

“Supporting Tinubu’s success stands as a crucial interest for Ndigbo, known for their self-reliance and resilience. Past periods of political instability saw Ndigbo unfairly targeted, leading to dire consequences.

“Any disruption in governance is likely to usher in an era of anarchy and chaos, exacerbating the already dire situation faced by the Nigerian populace.”

The factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze also commended the military for their loyalty while recognizing their dedication to maintaining peace and safeguarding Nigeria’s integrity against threats like terrorism and insurgency.

“We applaud their rejection of coup speculations and their unwavering loyalty to President Tinubu,” he added.
