Some good citizen of Nigerians on social media have reacted to the sacking of the Director General of the State Security Service, DSS, Lawal Daura, by Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the Acting President.
Most Nigerians believe that the sack of the DSS boss was long overdue, adding that he may have sent his men to the Senate without the consent of the Acting President, as the VP’s decision may not be unconnected to the invasion of the National Assembly by men of the DSS on Tuesday.
Reactions of some Nigerians:
@wolexzzo, “He was condoned and emboldened over time by the person who ought to have sacked him long ago. Had that being done, our history won’t have today’s records.”
@Davidadeola 10, “Great move! That’s what we are talking about. We say Buhari has been condoning impunity. Hoping Buhari will not reinstate him.”
@GordonMuero,”Thank you VP @ProfOsinbajo, for getting rid of one of the biggest threats to our democracy. Daura like many others, was a product of nepotism.”
@XixtinTheGreat, “After the DSS carry out your instructions, you turn around and fire the same person who you sent? Just to save face on social media @MBuhari.”
@segunjimoh, “Nice…but we have a BIG question to ask here. Who ordered the invasion of NAtional Assembly complex in the first place? The DG DSS cannot just be a scape goat, he acted on orders but from who? The VP should tell us. We deserve to know as this process is complete.”
