With the increasing calls for the restructuring of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari has stated he would not be intimidated into making any hasty decision over the matter, and he won’t succumb to pressure.

This was contained in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, on Sunday night.

In the statement, the Presidency warned that no action would be taken out of pressure, noting that all attention is needed to tackle the coronavirus at this time.

The statement said: “The presidency responds to the recurring threats to the corporate existence of the country with factions giving specific timelines for the president to do one thing or another or else, in their language, ‘the nation will break up.”

“This is to warn that such unpatriotic outbursts are both unhelpful and unwarranted as this government will not succumb to threats and take any decision out of pressure at a time when the nation’s full attention is needed to deal with the security challenges facing it at a time of the Covid-19 health crisis.”

“Repeat: this administration will not take any decision against the interests of 200 million Nigerians, who are the president’s first responsibility under the constitution, out of fear or threats especially in this hour of a health crisis.

“The president as an elected leader under this constitution will continue to work with patriotic Nigerians, through and in line with the parliamentary processes to finding solutions to structural and other impediments to the growth and wellbeing of the nation and its people.”


  1. Our leaders are our problem not the government, they always clamor for what will only be of benefic to them n not d masses. The country’s economy is down and they are not saying anything to all they do is to call for restructuring.

  2. I don’t think anyone is asking president buhari to make haste decision but rather calling his attention to what he ought to be done in favor of Nigerians. I don’t we are compulsory him to take certain decision rather telling him what it is right to do.

  3. As you said (Garba sheu), he shouldn’t also taking decision that will be a detriment to our lives for instance, hike in PMS, electricity tariff bill and etc. These decisions are affecting more than average Nigerians then what do we call that? Nobody is threatening him or intimidating him but rather to do the needful.

  4. What we are asking or demand from him is to take drastic decision in fighting or curbing Nigeria’s menace so that we live peacefully in Nigeria without intimidating one another.

  5. President muhammadu buhari is not a human being, please my question to ask…. Is this really buhari? If yes….can someone be ruling country like this? No any humans feelings at all.

  6. This man na useless president out of the hole president in the world, he’s just a caretaker in that place. Because I wonder why person go day rule a country like the oga buhari they do am.

  7. Buhari will never succumb to any pressure that will improve security and ameliorate the plight of the hapless and helpless poor masses. This administration is nothing but an accident on human history.

  8. Our Leaders Are Our Problem Not The Government, They Always Clamor For What Will Only Be Of Benefic To Them N Not D Masses. The Country’s Economy Is Down And They Are Not Saying Anything To All They Do Is To Call For Restructuring.

  9. President Muhammadu Buhari Is Not A Human Being, Please My Question To Ask…. Is This Really Buhari? If Yes….Can Someone Be Ruling Country Like This? No Any Humans Feelings At All.

  10. As a man of few words and much action, I know you won’t be moved but rather let your decision be for the betterment of the country

  11. If you are truly a democratic president as you claim to be Sir, you have to listen to the people you are ruling
