A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has knocked the DSS for saying the critics of the President Buhari, are planning to disintegrate Nigeria.
Urhobo Daily had earlier reported that the DSS on Sunday, described Buhari’s critics as misguided elements and accused them of threatening the government, sovereignty, and corporate existence of the country.
Notable Nigerians had flayed the President over his failure to curb the security crisis particularly, the Boko Haram insurgency, kidnapping, and banditry across the country.
But reacting to the avalanche of attacks on the President, the DSS spokesman, Dr Peter Afunanya, said the main objective for the calls was the disintegration of the country.
The DSS stated, “The Department of State Services hereby condemns the unsavoury statements by misguided elements who have continued to threaten the government, sovereignty and corporate existence of this country.
“Notable are the unnecessary vituperations and activities of some religious and past political leaders who have either called for a forceful change of government or mass action against it.”
Reacting in a tweet on Monday, however, Oby Ezekwesili said, “DSS must direct this to @MBuhari, the @NGRPresident, who is their Direct Supervisor.
