A pro northern group, Northern Youth Network (NYN) has said that the exit of the former director general of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) Lawal Daura and the subsequent appointment of Mr. Mathew Saiyefa in acting capacity will birth national security stability in the country.
Spokesperson, NYN, Haruna Haladu, who disclosed this in a statement entitled: ‘’New DG DSS: A New Era of National Security Stability’’ and made available to LEADERSHIP said security agencies are overstretched and many of those at the top echelon have exhausted idea to correct the anomaly, hence the clamour for an overhaul to inject new ideas in tackling the menace of prevailing insecurity across Nigeria has become a necessity.
Haladu said it is an incontrovertible fact today Nigeria is bedeviled with conflicts and insecurity on many fronts, adding that it is also a fact that the nation’s security agencies are overstressed.
According to him, ‘’The exit of Daura as the director general, DSS and the subsequent appointment of Mr. Mathew Saiyefa in acting capacity provide a window of opportunity that will birthed a new era of overhaul and reorganization of our security agencies.
‘’The appointment couldn’t have come at a better time than now, a thoroughbred professional, a symbol of integrity within and outside the DSS who core values are honesty, hardwork and fair of God.
‘’Saiyefa could be well described as the version of Muhammadu Buhari in the Department of State Security. We believe Mathew Saiyefa will restore the fading glory of the service and supervise a total turnaround of the service to meet up the challenges of the moment.’’
He said most urgent of all these is to rid the service of pervasive corruption and undue political meddlesomeness that the immediate past director general was accused of.
The spokesman noted that the service must instill discipline among its personnel and end all acts of impunity that have become synonymous with the service in recent times.
Haladu said that the appointment of Saiyefa in acting capacity is purely based on merit and it has shown how tolerant he is for appointing an Ijaw man to head the service contrary to how his opponents portrayed him as a fanatic who would have nothing to do with Christians heading security agencies considered too sensitive to his success or otherwise as commander in chief.
He called on leaders of the group across the north to support the new director general by respecting his well thought out choice and for the love of our country.
‘’Equally, we call on all aggrieved persons to give peace a chance and open up a window of engagement with the current leadership so that genuine grievances could be addressed going forward,’’ he added.
