DSS DISMISSES FALSE ACCUSATIONS BY JACKSON UD
The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to some spurious publications by one Jackson Ude on his twitter handle @jacksonpnb, against the person and office of the DGSS, Alhaji Yusuf Magaji Bichi.
In a statement made available to journalists by Director, PR and strategic communications DSS states that the allegations are entirely false and wishes to clarify that neither the DG nor anyone acting on his directive has looted staff subsidy grant.
And no such grant has been made available to the Service and once that is allocated, staff will, as usual, receive what is due them.
Bichi has, in all ramifications, evidently catered for the welfare of active and retired personnel. This is common knowledge and can be verified by Ude.
It added that the so called “goodbye allowance” which Ude accused the DG of granting himself is non-existent and only and imagination of the writer and his sponsors.
While Ude is at his mischief once again and has continued to smear the image of Bichi as well as present him as corrupt, facts at the DSS show otherwise.
Recalled from retirement in 2018 and appointed the DGSS, Bichi is seen as spartan, accountable, transparent and indeed, incorruptible and has remained resolute in running the Service and shown uncommon commitment in the management of its affairs. His top priorities are staff welfare and judicious application of human and material resources.
The statement further clarifies that Any misleading narratives to the contrary are therefore unacceptable.
Notably, the Service is aware of the desperation and antics of Ude and his other hirelings to associate it with unnecessary controversies either during the 2023 Presidential election or the subsequent litigations following it.
In view of the foregoing, the public is urged to disregard the falsehood being peddled by this known fake news merchant whose only stock in trade is to misinform as well as use his platforms to create division and violence. Meanwhile, the DGSS will take appropriate legal steps to seek redress.
