DSS CALLS FOR PEACE DURING KOGI,IMO AND BAYELSA STATE OFF CYCLE ELECTION

The Department of State Services (DSS) has observed rising trends and patterns of incendiary comments by some personalities of influence and representatives of non-governmental entities within and outside the country.

In a statement by the director, public relations and strategic communications Peter Afunanya states that DSS believes that such action by certain persons will not only heat-up the polity but set the ground for deep-seated animosities and divisions among the populace as will do the nation no good if its own citizens, whether at home or abroad, demarket or subvert her through misleading and false narratives.

The statement added that With the elections and the attendant contentions legally over, it is expected that we should forge ahead in nation building without rancour or acrimony. This is against the backdrop that reckless rhetorics have the capacity to lead to social unrest and instability, which can put the country’s well-being and the general safety of citizens at risk.

The Service urges key players and their supporters in Kogi, Imo and Bayelsa States to conform to the rules of engagement and specifically the electoral law during the 11th November, 2023 gubernatorial elections in the areas.

 

DSS therefore, implores all stakeholders, irrespective of their political affiliations or grievances, to engage in respectful and constructive conversations that promote collective understanding. It has thus become imperative that public commentaries should shift towards unity and peace necessary for national development and security.
