Legislators Are The Reasons Behind Our Security Issues – DSS
The Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Bichi, has said that most lawmakers, especially state governors, don’t confide in security authorities and would prefer to go to mystics and local specialists also called Babalawos for insurance.
Bichi said this when he talked at the induction ceremony for approaching governors composed by the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) that held in Abuja on Monday April 29th.
“I joke with politicians that you people trust the marabouts and babalawos more. Once someone tells you nothing will happen to your seat and it happens, you just trust that person in all crisis.” he said
He said there was no absence of Intelligence in the nation yet rather an absence of resolve to battle security challenges.
As indicated by Bichi, a portion of the security challenges in Nigeria is as a result of numerous legislators’ mistrust of security authorities.
