Breaking News: Buhari Appoints Another Northerner to Head the DSS

President Buhari has appointed Yusuf Magaji Bichi, another Northerner as the new Boss of the DSS. Following the sack of the former DSS boss, Lawal Daura by Vice President Yomi Osinbajo on Agust 7th while acting for President Buhari, a southerner, Matthew Seiyefa took up the affairs of the DSS in an acting capacity.

It would be recalled that while acting, he had some disagreements with the Presidency on some of his appointments which he later had to reverse. He has now been replaced by another northerner.

While announcing the appointment, Shehu Garba said, “President Muhammadu Buhari has approved with effect from the 14th of September, the appointment of Yusuf Magaji Bichi, as new Director-General of the State Security Service (SSS, popularly called DSS).

“The appointee is a core Secret Service operative.

“He attended Danbatta Secondary School, the Kano State College of Advanced Studies and the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria where he graduated with a degree in Political Science.

“The new Director-General began his career in the security division of the Cabinet Office in Kano, from where he joined the defunct Nigerian Security Organisation (NSO), the precursor of the present SSS.

“Mr. Bichi has undergone training in intelligence processing analysis, agent handling recruitment and intelligence processing in the UK, as well as strategic training at the National Defence College.

“The new SSS boss comes to the job with skills in intelligence gathering, research analysis, conflict management, general investigation, risk and vulnerability operations, counter intelligence and protective operation and human resources management.

“In the course of his career, Mr. Bichi has worked as the State Director of Security in Jigawa, Niger, Sokoto and Abia States.

“He was at various times the Director, National Assembly Liaison, (National War College), Director at National Headquarters in the Directorate of Security Enforcement, Directorate of Operations, Directorate of Intelligence, Directorate of Inspection and Directorate of Administration and Finance.

“He also served as Director at State Service Academy.

“Mr Bichi is married and with children.”

Do you expect him to appoint someone that he doesn’t trust, to head his security team? Even for his own safety, what he did was right. The wailing of the wailing wailers can not resist him from doing what he likes to do!

As they campaign vigorously for elections, you would think, they are coming to grow the economy, enthrone justice, breed unity and tolerance, love for one another. No, they are coming to enthrone Hausa Fulani supremacy, to reposition the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replace them with their kinsmen in order to drive their ethnic domination of the south, the Fulani herdsmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter us with impurity and their masters will protect them. They are coming to ensure that my people are enslaved forever. Those who do not believe me will soon see… Read more »

It is with heavy heart and with a deep sense of disappointment to read the appointment of one Magaji Bichi as the new Director- General of DSS. This is a slap on the face of well-meaning Nigerians who believe in Federal Character and the unity of the country. This action is the last straw that is capable of breaking the fabric which holds the country together. It is now clear that Southerners are on their own. My candid suggestion is this; Extreme situations requires extreme measures and response!
