Femi Falana (SAN), Lagos-based  Lawyer,  yesterday asked  Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo not to sign the 2017  budget until the National Assembly removed the N448 billion added to the budget. This was just as he urged Nigerian authorities to fish out those rumoured to be planning to topple President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration with a view to trying them for treasonable felony.

He also called for the arrest and prosecution of the civilian collaborators of the “coup plotters.”
According to him, it is illegal to jerk up the budget and allocate the chunk of the addition to themselves. He wondered why such should happen at a time when Nigerians are groaning in pains of poverty and non-availability of basic infrastructure.

Falana made the call in Ilorin, Kwara State, yesterday in a paper titled: “Politics, leadership and accountability, the role of the people” which he delivered at a colloquium on Kwara @ 50 organised by The Movement For Genuine Change. He, however, warned the political class to stop playing into the hands of potential coup plotters.
