Southern Leaders Reject New DSS DG, Describe Buhari As Nigeria’s Most Tribalistic Leader

On September 14, 2018 182 Comments

Some elders under the aegis of the Southern and Middle Belt Forum have accused President Muhammadu Buhari of dividing Nigeria more than any other leader in the nation’s history.

In a statement Thursday, the forum condemned Buhari’s removal of Matthew Seiyefa, acting director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The leaders alleged that the act shows his “vote of no confidence in one Nigeria.”

Seiyefa had been appointed in acting capacity after Lawal Daura, former DSS DG, was sacked over the siege at the national assembly.


In the statement, the forum described the removal of Seiyefa, who hails from Bayelsa state and who was the second in command to Daura, as a “disregard for the conditions precedent for a united Nigeria and an inclusive country.”

“The I-don’t-care and in-your-face attitude of the President in restoring Nigeria security architecture to the provocative situation of having 16 out of 17 service chiefs from his corner of the country is a clear demonstration of the fact that Nigeria for General Muhammadu Buhari is no more than his section of Nigeria and the resources and the constitutionally mandatory votes from other sections of the country,” the statement signed by Edwin Clark, among the other leaders, read.

“Since 1960,Nigeria has never had a leader more sectional ,narrow,parochial ,and tribalistic like the current President who went on a global stage to divide Nigeria into “97 % and 5%”.

“We have looked critically at the profiles of the Acting DG who was removed and the one Buhari just appointed and it is crystal clear that Bichi does not come with any experience close to that of Seiyefa.

“The only qualification for this appointment is therefore only the rabid nepotism of the President which has seen him always masking personal and sectional interest as national interest.

“Besides, Bichi is an out-of-the -system man drafted by Mr Lawan Daura in the days of his nepotism rule at the DSS. The next six most senior persons in line of succession at the DSS after Seiyefa are from our findings are all southerners which may explain why the President picked a man who already retired from the DSS to lead because of ethnic affinity .

“That the President went ahead to deep himself further into the cocoon of ethnic irredentism in making this insensitive appointment shows clearly that he does not care a hoot about the unity ,cohesion and oneness of Nigeria.

“We reject this appointment and we do not shy in telling Mr President that he no longer pretends that the country is one under him.”

The forum also questioned the idea of a second term for the president, saying “in the last few days ,there have been fears coming from the international community about the dangers that would come the way of Nigeria if Mr President returns for another term. With his latest action,we add that the country is not safe in the remainder of his first term”.

    Where are my Southern Mumus?

    Yusu Bichi retired from DSS 6 months ago and was brought back to take the job of a southerner.
    The 1st asignment of the newly appointed DG, DSS is to retire the 7 most senior officers of DSS which are 99% Southerners.

    He will then do promotion after this.

    Will he change if re-election? If there is anything he will be worse and many more people will die as a result. It should be a duty to remove him just like his colleagues removed him in 1985 as military despot.

    Buhari hates the south at heart, those from the south that support him are enemies of our people.

    Buhari is not intelligent to do this now he is seeking re-election. Can he be more audaciously bigoted? I first heard the word nepotism after he carried out a coup and removed a democratic government.

    He took nepotism to unprecedented levels. He should be stoned in the south together with those who support him. Wicked man!

    The most nepotic president Nigeria has ever had, president Buhari has displayed his nepotism again. Moreso, Buhari had to bring Yusuf Magaji Bichi that had been out of service, retired after completing 35 years of service, to head the DSS. If it is not appointing the dead into the national posts, Buhari would be appointing retired oldies into service. Nepotism is so natural to Buhari as evil is so natural to the devil. Indeed, president Donald Trump was not wrong to describe Buhari as lifeless. Buhari has shown his undying intentions to divide Nigeria before his own destruction He has already destroyed the unity of this country. Giving him a second term will destroy any fabric of unity left in Nigeria and the country will go bankrupt! The deepest part of hell is reserved for any southerner who in clear eyes supports this President!To all the Northerners and sai barbarians, make sure you catalogue all that’s happening now for future reference. Buhari has set a precedent. If a southerner comes into power, don’t complain if he appoints only Southerners. May God deliver Nigerians and Nigeria from Buhari’s nepotism and division.

    “President Buhari has appointed Magaji Yusuf Bichi the new DG SSS”

    With all due respect to my northern friends. President Buhari is the most nepotistic ruler ever in the history of Nigeria. His ethnic biase and tribalistic tendencies are second to none.

    For crying out loud Yusuf Bichi is retired. How do you bring someone from retirement to head a security institution if not for personal gain and Nepotism?

    Indeed Buhari is a President of the North, by North and for the North.

    Where are those people that thinks that northerners doesn’t count any body that is not a westerners as a biafran? Whether we all likes it or not,the colonial masters had only Arewa,oduduwa and biafrans.When northerners want to get any thing by voting,they will tell u people that u are not biafrans,when things are shared and appointments are made,they will tell u that u are biafrans What amuses me is that u will see someone their women ties two wrappers,those their names are chibuike,eberechukwu,chukwudi,even most moronic deltans will tell u they are delta igbo.Whether u like it or not,we all are biafrans and we never have a home if there is no biafra.We are talking of referendum and actualization of biafra,some idiots are terming it igbo agenda.No matter how loyal u try to be to this hausa/fulani caliphate they will never trust u.For those idiotic,moronic and imbecilic igbos and biafrans in diaspora that thinks that these jihadists would allow them become the president coming 2023 are the most idiotic fools.The earlier we join hands and get biafra the best and better for us.My so called south south people,it would be easier for u people to achieve ur Niger delta republic from biafra than getting it from Nigeria cos hausa/fulani would kill u if u miss the opportunities of following igbos to achieve biafra.Once biafra is achieved,any other region that want to be on their own it would be easier for them,but if u people refuses,biafra will come and u people and ur children will be their slaves forever.A word is enough for the wise

    It Is very clear that the northerners never believe in one Nigeria and they hate Nigeria more than anyone else in Nigeria, if they really believe in one Nigeria , why they are not investing in other region why they are not building houses in other region? If buhari believe in one Nigeria why he can not trust other Nigerians from different region? They love Niger delta oil money nothing else. No oil no one Nigeria.

    So the president should not put someone he will trust in a sensitive area as that abi? Dogs When Seyeifa was appointed as the Acting DG of the DSS, they said it was no big deal, and even pointed out that his compulsory retirement from the service was imminent.
    But now that a substanstive DG from the North has been appointed, it has become a big deal, and the usual talk of nepotism has resurfaced.
    Personally, if I were to be Buhari, and with all the political drama, schemes and subterfuge going on, I wont allow any Southerner to head any sensitive security agency. And even the ones from the North would follow Ngige to Okija and swear fealty to me.Hope we learn with open mind … pls note that what am about to say is not about hailing or supporting PMB’s action on this DSS issue.

    According to the Act that setup DSS, it is a special security outfit to protect the President himself and his family and other VIPs. They are % loyal to the President and not to the country, even though they are setup by the country. They do not work like Police or other military forces. They receive special security training to protect President and defend him and his office. DSS was setup as a measure to counter coup from military forces, hence their loyalty to the President % alone. They are always prepared for any shakeup without reading meaning to it. That’s the nature of their job.

    In view of this, any President is at liberty to choose whoever he deemed fit to head the institution that was setup to protect him.

    For example …

    When OBJ was president … the head of DSS was Col. Kayode Are

    When Jonathan was President, Ita Ekpeyong was the head of DSS.

    Therefore, if OBJ could have someone he trusted from his region and Jonathan chose someone he trusted from his region too, so why do you expect PMB to retain someone who he couldn’t trust to head his personal security team from other region, knowing the kind of politics of hatred and bitterness we are playing in this country? More especially when he was nearly killed in Aso Villa.

    Let’s be honest, fair and sincere to ourselves. Also let’s learn to respect our laws and constitution. That’s what the law says and no ethnic bigotry can change that.
