CNPP demands sack of Nigeria Police chief, SSS director

Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary.

The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, has called for the sack of the Inspector General of Police, Suleman Abba, and the Director General of the State Security Service, SSS, Ekpeyong Ita, for allegedly manipulating their organisations for personal gains rather than protecting Nigeria’s democracy.

The group, in a statement by its spokesperson, Osita Okechukwu, on Sunday, said the last week’s attempt to prevent the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, and other lawmakers from accessing the National Assembly complex and the ransacking of the All Progressives Congress, APC, data centre in Lagos, were indications that the security agencies could endanger the survival of democracy in the country.

It specifically said there were insinuations that Mr. Ita might be manipulating the security services for personal political gain.

“We call on President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, to as a matter of urgent national importance, to sack the Inspector General of the Police and the Director General of State Security Service, in order to absolve himself of the insinuations gaining ground that he is manipulating the security services for personal political gain,” the group said.

The CNPP said against all known ethics, the police engaged in double standard by opening the gate for the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, while it locked out the Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal, and other lawmakers, who it sprayed with tear gas.

It wondered who the next victims of the police would be just as it recounted that “former President Olusegun Obasanjo had warned us against the nest of killers in the hands Mr President and his men.”

It said, “Ironically these are the same security agencies three months after showing the world the master-minds of the 23rd July, 2014 attempt on General Muhammadu Buhari’s life are yet to make public the findings.”

The CNPP said it was worried that voter apathy, voter disquiet and voter unhappiness are on the increase election after election as a result of citizens’ distrust emanating from the bad habit of officials of the SSS, which unabashedly demonstrate partisanship.

The group called on the police and the SSS to save Nigeria’s democracy by acting professionally.

It explained that it was making the call on the understanding that the security agencies as well as the Army, Navy, Air force, Federal Road Safety Commission and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps were veritable institutions of democracy.

It said, “Which means that no democracy can survive without security agencies, devoted patriotically to promote, protect and defend the rule of law; we are therefore at a loss of how the Inspector General of Police and the Director General of Department of Security Service are violently descending into the political arena.”

    Mr. Ekpeyong Ita operates the Intelligence arm of the PDP with marylyn Ogar as his deputy. He is known to be very corrupt and an ally of Ali Sheriff, former Borno State Governer. They are only good at framing up innocent people or when called for PDP based missions.
