Some Niger Delta advocates on Sunday October 07 examined the various internal security challenges confronting Nigeria, and came up with the verdict that the role played by the Department of State Services (DSS) in the last one year has been excellent.
They also praised President Muhammadu Buhari for revamping the country’s security apparatus and curtailing pressures.
The leaders in a statement in Abuja commended President Buhari for his maturity in using the judiciary to handle sensitive matters in the country.
In a statement signed by its Convener, Engineer Bestman Odibo, and Publicity Secretary, Mr. Christopher Orushani, the group, Delta Enlightened Forum, praised the Director General of the DSS, Alhaji Yusuf Magaji Bichi, for his robust and reform-minded leadership, deep sense of public service, prodigious intelligence, professional excellence and precision.
“We salute you for the service rendered to the country and in particular your concentration on the agenda of the administration and the serious task of building the economy, stamping out insecurity and fighting corruption,” the statement said.
They hailed Bichi for tailoring all his activities in the line of patriotism and stability, adding, “We are inspired by your wisdom, courage and passion for excellence.
“We praise you for promoting peaceful co-existence and mediation as it concerns all spheres of life. We thank you for taking the Department of State Services to an all-time high level since 2018.
“We laud your selfless commitment and the excellent role played by the Department of State Services in addressing the internal security challenges confronting Nigeria in the last one year.”
Stressing Bichi’s qualities, the leaders thanked him for using his humility, great intellectual base and incomparable understanding of the environment to power the country to greater heights.
“We praise the positive attitude of DSS officials and the commitment of the agency to due process rights for the accused.
“We thank you for the feat recorded in deepening and widening the intelligence gathering and conflict management capacity of the Department of State Services,” the group said.
The leaders who lamented the bad image being given to Nigeria by some of her citizens praised Bichi for surpassing the expectations of Nigerians in such a short period.
The leaders also appealed to critics of the government to stop heating up the polity by threats of revolution.
“Combative style, explosive statements and embarrassing measures are against existing frameworks of cooperation. They contribute nothing to unity, stability, good governance and prosperity.
“Only an atmosphere of peace can guarantee development. And without peace, the future will remain uncertain,” the statement said.
