Pereira did not specify the source of the plot, nor the targeted politicians, but seemed to be accusing President Jose Mario Vaz, who removed him from the PM post in August citing Induta’s return as one of his faults.

He told reporters the president had not given any evidence for his corruption and nepotism — the two charges for his sacking.

Guinea Bissau has remained without a government since the dismissal of Pereira and his government on Aug. 12.
Pereira further accused the president of trying to implicate the security and defense forces in the prevailing confusion in the country.

Mario Vaz on Tuesday rejected a cabinet proposed by the new Prime Minister, Carlos Correia, arguing most of the ministers in the proposal were from Pereira’s dismissed government. Enditem
