We must not allow selfish people with greedy interest destroy Nigeria – DSS DG
The Director-General of Department of State Services, Mr Yusuf Bichi, has warned not to let the selfish people with greedy interest destroy Nigeria.
Bichi spoke at the graduation ceremony for participants of the Executive Intelligence Management Course at the National Institute for Security Studies, Abuja, on Saturday
“We must not let selfish people with greedy interest destroy our collective heritage”, the DGSS warned.
He noted, “We must not allow unpatriotic elements to bring our country down. So, let us unite individually and collectively to address our challenges, and build a better nation for ourselves, our children and their generation.
“We all have contributions to make in ensuring that Nigeria becomes safe, peaceful and developed.
The criticisms about the security agencies; people don’t appreciate from where we were, and where we are now.”
He, however, assured that that stage in the nation’s history, where citizens were not sure of what to expect as they step out of their homes would never return again.
“Gone were the days that when you enter a mosque or church and find a polythene bag, you are scared. In fact, you will never be comfortable praying with that bag around.
“That is now history, and it is through the combined efforts of the security agencies and other stakeholders, that we were able to achieve that.
“You go to a place of relaxation, and you are scared of explosives here and there. That, now, is history.
“Those calling for dismantling of this country are deliberately not being mindful of what is on their dining table,” he said.
