BYE – ELECTION: DSS CALLS FOR VIOLENCE FREE RE-RUN, BYE-ELECTIONS 

The Department of State Services (DSS) has  called  on the electorate and participating political parties in the 3rd February, 2024 re-run and bye-elections to be of good conduct during and after the exercises in the affected States.
This is contained in a statement signed by the  Director, PR & Strategic Communications,  Department of State Services, Peter Afunanya, Ph.D, fsi, mnipr
 The Service therefore  tasks the contending parties to shun all acts capable of causing a breakdown of  law and order. Also, politicians and their supporters must strive to adhere to the electoral act and procedure.
 The DSS enjoins citizens to be patriotic and loyal to the Nigerian nation.  Adding that, Public commentators, social critics and key players in the public space should consider the peace of the country over and above their personal or group interests.
Similarly, the Media, Civil Society and Community Based Organisations are encouraged to shun divisive tendencies and fake narratives likely to undermine national order.
The Service, therefore, advises those engaging in subversive endeavours or desirous of doing so to desist from such; consequently, saying  it will not hesitate to bring defaulters, no matter how highly placed, to face the full weight of the law.
On its part, the Service, in the discharge of its mandate, will work with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), other sister security and law enforcement agencies and indeed all stakeholders to ensure a hitch-free election. Additionally, it will continue to implement proactive measures to achieve the desired stability in the country.
