BREAKING: Pres. Buhari Sacks SSS Director General Ita Ekpenyong| Appoints Replacement

Published

 on

Ita Ekpeyong

President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked Director General of the State Security Service (DSS/SSS), Ita Ekpenyong, and has appointed a new replacement, Lawal Musa Daura.

The news was announced on Thursday by the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Danladi Kifasi, Premium Times reports.

Daura, is said to be returning to the SSS from retirement.

According to the report:

The removal of Ekpenyong, who was appointed DG of the agency on September 8, 2010, has long been expected.

Under him, the SSS became openly partisan, especially in the run-up to the 2015 general elections.

Rather than gathering intelligence necessary to make the country safe, the agency busied itself more with harassing and arresting opposition figures, ransacking firms and offices with ties to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and appearing on television to disparage opposition politicians and their party.

      Na wa for reasoning o.

      SSS DG is a very sensitive position. The president must trust whoever holds the position. Perhaps you should go down memory lane and see all those who have occupied the position. For OBJ, he chose his person from the south west, Yaradua chose his person from the North East, GEJ chose this Ita Ekpeyong man from the SS.

      You guys need to chill and learn to analyze matter objectively. He isn’t doing anything unexpected. I repeat, the SSS position is VERY sensitive and must be held by someone the President trusts.

      Lets stop all these unnecessary arguments along religious and tribal lines. Nigerians are quite impatient. we need to give this administration a chance. If you guys know the rot that Buhari met, we would be patient.

      God bless Nigeria.

    Is this a joke?
    Is Nigeria made up of Hausas and Northerners alone?????
    Are competent people only found in the part of the country????
    I have watched keenly,chose not to comment hastily but not again!
    INEC,Accountant General,DPR, etc and here again?
    Supporters i hope you don’t over indulge this man?
    Nigeria is made up of over 317 different tribes and please no one should look for trouble.

      When l say the Cow Master is the worst thing to happen to this country, trust me. The reason the Dullard is yet to appoint his ministers is because, there is serious infighting between Tinubu and Buhari. Buhari wants the free hand to appoint certain people into certain portfolios, but Tinubu has a different idea. Tinubu not only wants to nominate people, which is fine but, he also wants to choose portfolio. This is the reason the list cannot be released yet.

      What Buhari fails to understand is that Nigerian politicians are not soldiers who he can command to jump and they will ask how high. Buhari will learn but, he will learn the hard way. All those who think Locomotive is the messiah are mostly delusional. A young Northerner will emerge who will lead Nigeria. Buhari is a time waster. In his thirst for power, Tinubu only helped Buhari fulfil his life long dream since he was rejected by Nigerians through a Military coup.

      If he likes let him appoint tired old men like himself no whahala. When the owner of the seat is ready, Buhari go shift. My anger is that elements in the SS, SE & SW have helped in no small measure to feed the feeling of entitlement by the North.

      People with your reasoning are the reason why most people in leadership think they were elected to plunder communal resources instead of serving the electorate.

      Nigeria will see pepper. Just watch. Only Northerners or Muslims are now going into powerful positions returning to the days of old. They want Nigeria’s resources for themselves. Just watch. You guys think Boko Haram is a small thing………..they know what they are doing. Change…….

    Buhari has Ahmed Joda guiding him.
    Until Tinubu pushed Buhari to Owerri he had not crossed the Niger bridge for Owerri for over forty years exaggerated sha. But found it insulting that Buhari could not say “Igbo kwenu” That shows so much intolerance.

    Buhari cant say ekaro in yoruba and greedy Tinubu wanted power and now he has given it to the power drunk Northerners and has now been stripped by Saraki Northerner. When will South West learn?????

    Hard luck to Tinubu. Karma is real

    If Tinubu can be humiliated like this what will Amaechi fate be?????

    The distribution of position and power appears to be leaning towards a certain group of people. My presido, how far na? I just they watch the names and tribe of the people appointed closely. I would like to believe that he is going to do his research and try find credible people from other tribes that are qualified and honest enough to fill certain positions, as we await the announcement of the ministers.

  12. Someone Naughty

    July 2, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    And guess who he replaced him with? A northerner.

    Notice how the people he’s appointed so far have been northerners.

    Let’s not pretend geo-politics no longer exists in Nigeria. As long as the players remain these same old people, it will remain North vs South.

    Buhari is destroying the unity Jonathan built

    Remeber jonathan-visisted emirs, engaged many projects in the north plus many northern appointments etc.

    Buhari is appointing only northerners, visiting only northern states, Niger&chad-extension of north, removing all benefits from the south, even the Yorubas are not benefiting

    Remember the president of sudan was arrested in the South Africa for war against humanity and almost extradited, when ICC finish their investigation on the 2011 election buhari will eventually be arrested even as a sitting president and extradited

      GEJ, though a good man was ill advised. He was told that if he placates the North, they will “allow” him rule for another 4 years. Rubbish mistake. After all, Nigeria belongs to all of us. Or is it? He concentrated so much on pleasing the North to the detriment of other parts of Nigeria. What he did not realise was that the North is like the devil, you dine with that geo political zone with a looooog spoon.

      Unfortunately, they are not even acknowledging all he did. How can you surround yourself with people who believe they own the enterprise you manage? My heart aches when l remember how that man started well and he just lost it somewhere. Nigeria whahala too plenty.

    If anything, history is there to teach us very vital lessons.

    I hope Buhari has learnt his lessons having ruled Nigeria before.

    The lopsided nature of his appointments so far calls for serious concern. I hope he will not prove those that have kept insisting he is a tribal warlord right?

    This man shd tread carefully before his government spirals out of control. Nigerians do not joke with issues of ethnicity and religion. Those clamoring otherwise are either direct or indirect beneficiaries or are being plain hypocritical.

    Those saying we shd wait for ministerial appointments are expressing warped logic, as those appointments are statutorily bound to reflect federal character.

    It is in appointments such as these, that we can judge who this man really is. A word they say is enough for the wise….

You have to give it to someone with the highest trust value. If i were him gan i will put my blood brother there self. Why are you guys talking as if Nigeria is US or UK. This country is too damn polarized and treacherous, and a naive security slip can cause maximum damage. The Saraki saga is still fresh on our minds

      I was telling a friend that the SW is the fulcrum on which way Nigerian politics swing. If not for Tinubu and his re-branding of GMB, will GMB be PMB? Same thing before the Biafran war. Awolowo visited the SE (on invitation from Ojukwu) and saw the horrible conditions of the internal refugee and heard the stories of massacre in the North. Awolowo promised to organize the SW to also demand independence from the Nigerian government, even only Ojukwu would alert him before Ojukwu secedes… Clearly did not happen. Lol!

Buhari clearly dosent have a plan for his administration and he dosent care what all of you are saying because he understands that Nigerians are full of talk talk on twitter and all the other social media avenues but little or no action .i just pity all of us,the common Nigerian who’s struggling and dosent have connected relatives,i really pity this country. I read somewhere that for change to occur in nigeria,people form ages 10years old and above will be wiped from the face of the earth in nigeria,maybe then I will believe change will come.if not I doubt…we are too greedy and corrupt as a nation.

Miss me with that competence BS. A president of Nigeria is a president of ALL, there are competent people in every region and appointments must reflect our diversity so that everyone feels carried along.

      on the contrary, one of the reasons Nigeria has a twisted and imbalanced structure is because of people like you, the cowardly enablers living in false utopia, People who refused and still refuse to speak up thereby letting certain regions hold the rest of Nigeria to ransom. People like you are case study examples of the Stockholm syndrome (baby geh best believe that you are in my prayers) you will sit in Lagos and Abuja and think that’s all Nigeria is about….leave your comfort zone and feel the dissatisfaction and the disenchantment with Nigeria’s present lopsided structure. tomorrow they will say Director and Radio Biafra is a problem but its this lopsided structure that allows such people to sell certain narratives.

      @ Ada Nnewi no one says you shouldn’t proudly support Buhari, brand your forehead with his name if you like. The issues still remain – unifying Nigeria cos that’s one of our major downfall after corruption, no ministers appointed putting everything on hold, declaration of assets ist step of transparency. Get your bloody head out of the clouds. Change is what we were promised, Change is what we’re demanding.

      Ada nwanne m, some you win, some you lose..accept it, for someone with your eloquence during the election, as i followed your passionate debate for your man bubu keenly trying to convince myself that he will be better than GEJ, you sound uneasy cos down somewhere you know your man, will fall hand..The bubu I know will fall hand, he doesn’t know any Southerner, so all his appointments will be skewed to the north except for the ones tinubu will force on him..It is a rough ride tho..but we continue to watch

      this your optimism is real cute…….vote him out how? with the 1.9 million votes from Kano swinging on his side right. you people allowed sentiments to cloud your judgment when you voted., you all chose the WORSE of the 2 devils offered us. Best believe that you and the other naively optimistic ones CANNOT VOTE him out in 2019 unless PDP presents another northern candidate that appeals to the northern elites. you people were celebrating one false triumph of democracy when those results were announced yeah? I wish I could gloat but unfortunately I’m full blooded Nigerian so na siddon observe I dey…. #HarmattanIsComing

      Exactly! The SW really goofed up by accepting such inflated voting numbers from the North. Kano has more people than Lagos?? Then calculate the level of literacy and exposure of Lagosians compared to average Kano resident. Never mind that Borno (that is under constant siege by Boko) turned out 300k more votes that Enugu! Yet everyday in the news you hear about Boko attacking and burning down villagers. Yet it makes sense that such large numbers of people would aggregate to vote in Borno?

    i am just ready to laugh so hard. I’m sure people like Amaechi and those mumu Yoruba people are regretting badly for supporting Buhari. this your president is the godfather of BH (how can Nigerians forget all he said during past elections?a man that was against killing of terrorists stand today pretending to ask for help to fight what he started? Nothern leaders are responsible for this mess maybe it was just to intimidate us but it got out of hand). I’m not saying this because of GEJ,i hated the fact he wasn’t tough enough but then again we are not all blood thirsty like the Northerners. if it was Fashola it would have been so awesome. Buhari is just too creepy and i don’t see good intentions at all.for that reason alone,i’d vote for GEJ 10x over not this Buhari man.

    Northerners believe it’s their right to rule Nigeria/ they feel they own Nigeria. it is better to trust the devil than any Hausa/Fulani people tbh. they are not it all all.they are just too strange.

    they’ve not started dealing with us and we’ve started complaining lol change abi?una go hear am well well.

    Very good appointment. GOOD ONE! Every president In a very long time have chosen DSS from their side for obvious reasons.

    You have to put someone who you trust Biko. As long as we want to shout one Nigeria. We must also look at things strategically What should be getting uproar (if at all) are other appointments that he put notherners. Not this one! Lmaoo you want him to put someone he doesn’t know well all in the name of being fair? Is his life a “jangilova”?

    PS: the woman he appointed as acting INEC chairperson is very valid. VERY VALID…!

    People really don’t know how Democracy works. 15m of us voted him in to power to try and fix Nigeria, he is constitutionally mandated to choose a minister from 36 states. He MUST DO that. If he wants to fill the other posts up with those he personally can vouch for/trusts that’s his business.

    All we know is that in 4 years he presents himself back to us for vetting, if we don’t like his rule we vote him out. Democracy, its stupid, its annoying and it has not been proven to work for developing countries seeking quick economic development, but its inherently fair.

    You people wasting energy like Buhari will come and read BellaNaija comments, cry and stop appointing who he wants to appoint.

Do you somewhere in your mind understand what federal character is? If indeed you are from nnewi the best your so called change master has done for you is to relocate boko haram cons to a prison close to your home town, pray hard that there isn’t a sinister plan for a jail break oh cos it isn’t even a maximum prison….you should be so ashamed of yourself. You should be hiding your face in shame…. Tufiakwa. It haff reach to spit on you. Just shut up!

Anyway with all the comment above I can see that our beloved country is in trouble if nothing is done to change the mind set of our present youth . Can’t u people for ones forget about ur trip and religion and wish d country d best. What if is an Hausa man , Igbo or Yoruba man that can make it work, won’t u give them d change to prove it first b4 crucifying them . Your ranting and complain is just causing confusion and disunity in d country . Remember a nation that is divided again it’s self can never stand

    What I don’t understand is why people cannot make sound arguments or discussions without being so rude and insulting.
    Many are cowards behind the screen who reveal their true selves and manners that they cannot dare to verbalize to the faces of those whom they insult. Both GEJ and PMB are father figures. Yet you berate them with insultive terms because you don’t like them, why?
    How would you like your dad to be called these words?
    I see now why our country is so messed up. Just read various threads to see the caliber of manners of a Nigerian citizens. I just hope these are our worst and not the majority. #shame #immaturityOnDisplay

Your inability to express your dissatisfaction in a classy way is a reflection of your manners. No need to further converse with the likes of you. Waste of time.

    I am terribly disappointed at the way and manner Nigerians insult one another while discussing topical issues. on social media,. I wonder how and where we lost our moral decorum The right or freedom of expression does not arrogate superficial powers on anyone rather it is a right to exchange information in an unbiased manner and criticize constructively whilst appreciating hard work, The problem of this country is largely the irrational outburst/action of dis-jointed/maligned minds of the overwhelming number of ill-informed Nigerians. We should learn how to articulate our points objectively and avoid whipping up sentiments (for self-glorification purposes) or playing to the gallery. First and foremost, we need to give PMB free hand (to the extent that is guaranteed by the constitution) to run this administration. The performance of Political appointees should be not be judged on tribal or religious lines. class. Rather, their performance should be measured by the quality of their output. Moreover,as citizens of Nigeria we need to step up our thought-process and embrace personal changes and transformation.
