REVEALED!!! Reason Osinbajo Ordered Sack Of DSS Boss, Lawal Daura
- By Haruna Yusuf Abuja
- The reason behind the newest biggest discussion in Nigeria, the sacking of the Director General of the Department of State Service, DSS, Lawal Daura, has been revealed by a source close to events leading up to the sack.
Information reaching Daily Hint, the source revealed that Acting President Yemi Osinbajo had to make the decision to sack Daura as a result of his actions in the past 24hours.
It all started when no fewer than 30 Senators gathered in the wee hours of Tuesday morning to finalize plan to impeach against Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu, with Daura having knowledge of the meeting.
The meeting was held around 12:30 a.m. at a location in Abuja, the nation’s capital. At the meeting, the lawmakers allegedly met with Daura and All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman.
As part of the plot, Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan (Yobe North) will be picked as Senate President while Hope Uzodinma (Imo West) will emerge as his deputy.
But according to the source who is close to the presidency, Osinbajo was in the dark all along and “only heard news of National Assembly invasion like other Nigerians”.
He said: “The sack of Daura is within the powers of the Acting President. Daura hobnobbed with party officials and some lawmakers as if he was answerable to them.
“What happened today was a breach; a total disregard for the Acting President. If anything had happened to anyone, it would have been on his head. People would accuse him of incompetence.
“The situation embarrasses the country too as some countries through their missions in Nigeria have complained to the presidency that they were worried about what was happening.”
Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande announced Daura’s sack on Twitter.
He tweeted: “Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has directed the termination of the appointment of the Director General, State Security Service, DSS, Mr. Lawal Musa Daura with immediate effect.
“Mr. Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice.”
