Minister of State for Defence, Dr. Bello Muhammed Matawalle, has cautioned Nigerians making inflammatory comments against the government to desist or face the consequences.

A statement by the director of information in the ministry, Mr Henshaw Ogubike, said the minister made the call against the backdrop of utterances from some sections of the populace.

The statement did not state which comment the minister was referring to.

He said such comments are incisive and destructive and could exacerbate tension and lead to violence.

Matawalle said President Bola Tinubu has the capacity and political will and was working round the clock to see that Nigeria is a better and well-secured nation.

The minister highlighted some policies the Tinubu-led government has put in place so far to reshape and modernise the economy and to secure lives, liberty and property of the people.

He said; “Mr. President has given priority to the safety of citizens by equipping the Nigerian military to function optimally while the service chiefs have also been charged to rebuild the capacity of the security services.”

Speaking on the economy, Matawalle said the president understands the nexus between insecurity and poverty and that was why the government is increasing its investment in MSMEs.

Matawalle said President Tinubu is trying his best in tackling the economic challenges being experienced by Nigerians.

While acknowledging the global nature of the challenges, he reassured the public that the president and his team are tirelessly working to alleviate the burdens on the Nigerian populace.
