Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has warned that it would be treasonable for anyone to suggest the idea of setting up an interim government in the country, reports Vanguard.

He said an interim government is unconstitutional and would not be acceptable to regional and international organisations.

President Jonathan, who was speaking at the first 2015 plenary session of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), in Abuja on Sunday, said he would never advocate for the setting up of an interim government having been elected with clear mandate of the people.
