A former Minister of Education in Nigeria, Oby Ezekwesili, has knocked the Department of State Services for saying that the critics of President Muhammadu Buhari were planning to disintegrate Nigeria.
According to her, nobody seeks to throw Nigeria into anarchy than Buhari “whose actions and inactions daily dig Nigeria deeper into disintegration”.
The secret police on Sunday described Buhari’s critics as misguided elements and accused them of threatening the government, sovereignty and corporate existence of the country.
Notable Nigerians had flayed the President over his failure to curb the security crisis particularly the Boko Haram insurgency, kidnapping and banditry across the country.
But reacting to the attacks on the President, the DSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, said the main objective for the calls was the disintegration of the country.
The secret police stated, “The Department of State Services hereby condemns the unsavoury statements by misguided elements who have continued to threaten the government, sovereignty and corporate existence of this country.
“Notable are the unnecessary vituperations and activities of some religious and past political leaders who have either called for a forceful change of government or mass action against it.”
Reacting in a tweet on Monday, however, Ezekwesili said, “DSS must direct this to @MBuhari, the @NGRPresident, who is their direct supervisor.
“Nobody else in Nigeria today seeks to throw Nigeria into anarchy than a President whose actions and inactions daily dig Nigeria deeper into disintegration. DSS, please send your boss a query.”
