President Buhari has relieved the acting DSS Director General, Matthew Safeyia of his job and approved the appointment of Yusuf Magaji Bichi as the new Director-General of Service.
This came as a shocking news to Nigerians who expressed their dissatisfaction with this act in the social media.
Below are excerpts from various social media posts by Nigerians;
“Buhari was not comfortable with VP Osinbajo’s appointment of a Christian as head of the DSS while he was in a London, then he removed him; this is injustice of the highest order”.
“Bichi’s appointment exposes Buhari’s rabid nepotism” – Southern, Middle-Belt leaders.
“Just because #Seiyefa is from a state where @MBuhari isn’t popular, his career was terminated prematurely and we preach #equity and #justice must it be about the #north always!”
“Buhari’s New DSS DG Retired 6 Months Ago and all the Most Senior Officers After Matthew Safeiya, the Acting DG are all Southern Christians, so he had to go back to a retired DSS officer, is that not an ethnic/religious cleansing?”
“The chances that Buhari will sack all the 7 senior DSS officers from Southern Nigeria is high as the new DG’s assignment is to help Buhari to win the 2019 Presidential election”. – Hope For Nigeria
