On Thursday, September 13, 2018, President Muhammadu Buhari appointed a newDirector-General of the Department of State Service, DSS. And he is Yusuf Magaji Bichi.
The news of the appointment of the new DSS boss was announced by the President Buhari’s spokesperson, Shehu Garba.
In a statement by Garba, the appointment of Bichi is expected to take off on Friday, September 14, 2018.
Bichi’s appointment is coming over one month after Mathew Seiyefa was appointed as the new Director-General of the DSS on Tuesday, August 7, 2018.
Seiyefa’s appointment was confirmed by the Presidency after DSS former DG, Lawal Daura was sacked following the invasion of the National Assembly by DSS operatives.
Nigerians have taken to social media to voice their concerns about this move by President Buhari.
Presidential aspirant Donald Duke expressed his sadness on Twitter, few hours after President Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, announced the appointment.
In his tweet at about 9:32PM, Duke said President Buhari ‘has proven himself an irredeemable irredentist.
What do you think though?
Yay or Nay? Is President Buhari right to sack Seiyefa and appoint Bichi as DSS DG?
