The Federal Government has debunked the claim in certain quarters that a Presidency cabal was working toward an Interim National Government (ING).
The minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed speaking on a TVC live programme, “This Morning”, said the claim was the handwork of fifth columnist, planning to destabilise the country.
The minister added that the 2023 elections would be conducted free and fair and the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu would emerge victorious.
“Tinubu will win the 2023 Presidential election. APC will succeed itself and there will be no interim government because we have no intention to stay a day after the end of the tenure of this administration.
“As a matter of fact, President Muhammadu Buhari’ has already constituted a transition committee and by the grace of God, we will hand over to the APC candidate, no matter the conspiracy theories all around,” he said.
