Ighoyota Amori, a former Senator and chieftain of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, has hailed Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for the prompt sacking of Lawal Daura as Director General of the Department of State Service, DSS, following his disgraceful stunt with Tuesday’s siege on the National Assembly.
Sen. Ighoyota, who is also the Political Adviser to National Chairman of PDP, noted that Osinbajo’s timely reaction ended a coup against Nigeria’s democracy.
Speaking on Friday, Sen. Ighoyota said “The prompt sacking of Director-General of DSS by the acting president restored Nigeria’s honour and immediately obliterated the odium the security operatives’ action brought on the country.
“The acting president acted very well in checking that coup against democracy. He did quite well to restore the country’s integrity,’’ he said.
He however advised heads of security agencies in Nigeria to learn from what became of Lawal Daura who, in his words, was overzealous in carrying his duties as head of a security agency.
Sen. Ighoyota further described Tuesday’s incident as a demonstration of partisanship and abuse of power.
He said “what happened in Nigeria on Tuesday was a big shame to the country. They were wielding guns and barring everybody as if they were going to war.
“Imagine the number of members of the international community that condemned the action. It was a minus for the country.’’
He urged the Presidency to take serious steps to check the excesses of the security apparatus, saying “I don’t think that they are doing the APC government any good by their actions.
“The security agencies are more in the news than politicians and government.
“In civilised societies, we never saw what happened in Nigeria there; it is because our own people are not exposed.
“In the UK or U.S., you never heard of an IG or so, but here, every day, the IG, DSS and others are all over the place. It is hardly heard of in any society.”
