The Chairperson of the Council of Economic Advisors David Ndii has dared the Azimio Coalition to go ahead and overthrow the government if they can.
Ndii on Thursday said the government will not give in to the demands of the Azimio coalition, adding that they should patiently wait for the next general elections.
"We are not budging. Overthrow the government if you are able, otherwise wait for elections," he said.
He defended the Kenya Kwanza government saying President William Ruto won the elections as he came up with new ideas which challenged how things were being done before.
"We contested and won the election on a platform of upsetting the status quo. I would be very alarmed if the status quo was not upset. Bring it on," he said.
This comes even as Azimio Chief Raila Odinga moved to collect signatures aimed at removing Ruto from office through a digital platform.
The Azimio Chief intends to collect up to 15 million signatures from Kenyans across the country.
On Tuesday, Raila said he had collected up to 1.2 million signatures.
He said the digital platform to collect the signatures is part of a grand plan to force the Kenya Kwanza administration to listen to Kenyans.
"A total of 1.2 million signatures have been collected as of today," Raila said on Tuesday.
He warned that those critical of the legitimacy of the signatures do not comprehend the strength of the people when they come together.
"We don't expect them to understand. They don't understand the people's power as of now, but with time they will understand," Raila said.
