Fayose threatens to sack SSS officials from Ekiti Government House

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said he will have to reconsider the presence of operatives of the State Security Service at the Government House and other establishments in the state following the alleged invasion of the state House of Assembly on Friday.

He said the SSS under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari was now operating outside its constitutional mandate.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Mr. Fayose said he and the people of the state would not be intimidated by one million armed men of the SSS.

“The government of Ekiti State may have to reconsider the usefulness of men of the DSS in the government house and other institutions of the State government,” Mr. Fayose said.

He said the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government was pursuing a clandestine agenda of truncating democracy in Ekiti State and other Peoples Democratic Party-controlled states like Rivers and Bayelsa.

“If Buhari likes, let him relocate all DSS men in Nigeria with the entire ammunition in their armoury to Ekiti, the will of Ekiti people can never be broken,” he said.

“They will only try, and like they have always done, they will fail because dictatorship has never triumphed over the people.

“Even Buhari’s dictatorship between 1984 and 1985 ended one day and Nigerians will also outlive his present dictatorship.”

The governor said the SSS under Lawal Daura had abandoned its core mandate of providing intelligence for the protection of the internal security of Nigeria as provided in the Security Agencies Act Cap. N74 LFN, 2004.

“Instead of assisting the police, military and other security agencies with classified matters, we now have a DSS that is running after perceived opponents of the president, arresting goat and fowl thieves as well as husbands who assaulted their wives,” he said.

“If the DSS was alive to its responsibilities, we won’t be having Boko Haram insurgents killing Nigerians, all these kidnappings and Fulani herdsmen killings, raping and destroying farmlands in the South-West, South-East and North-Central zones in the country would have been nipped in the bud.”

Mr. Fayose also noted that the same way President Buhari used the National Security Organisation (NSO), headed by Ambassador Mohammed Lawal Rafindadi from Katsina State, is the same way the President is using the SSS, headed by another of his kinsman, Lawal Daura to harass, oppress and intimidate Nigerians.

“It is obvious that democracy in Nigeria is becoming unsafe in the hands of Buhari and his APC and those keeping silent now because of politics may also end up in the belly of this roaring lion that is threatening to consume our democracy,” he warned.

“Therefore, Nigerians and the international community should take special notice of the use of the DSS and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to muscle opposition.

“As for me, I wish to say once again that I am not among those Nigerians that are afraid of harassment by any agency of the federal government.

“I make bold to state that in the overall interest of democracy and well-being of Nigerians, I will continue to speak my mind on issues bordering on governance in Nigeria. I will not be intimidated.”

    Buhari henchmen and evil agents have no business harassing innocent people, the Governor is right to send all of them packing. The wolves should gather at Daura to watch Buhari’s raping relatives.

  • Contact Point

    This man always use a sledgehammer for a fly. Is this what Ekiti people that i know asked and voted for?

  • linkhadj.

    Fayose, I had no respect for your opinion before, but ever since you revealled that there is plan to Islamise Nigeria and our President latter confirmed dragging the country into Islamic Coalition Club, I am having a rethink. Besides, why is it that important Government policies are always brought to Nigerians’ knowledge from our President’s speeches abroad. GMB should pease talk to us here in Nigeria and not from far-of cuntries during his foreign trips.

    Ayo Fayose,is an anti-democracy clown who constantly bringin disgrace and embarrassment to the good people of Ekiti State with his utterances and actions with threats.DSS operatives have the constitutional right to invade and investigate any suspected certificate forgers anywhere including Ekiti State House of Assembly without permission of the arrogant Ayo Fayose.Ekiti State is still under Nigerian state and Nigerian FGN.
