Former President of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Jonathan has urged the Nigerian Department of State Service (DSS) to render similar protection they give to highly placed Nigerians to other citizens of the country.
This is just as ex-President warned the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) not to allow themselves to be used.
He said: “While they are protecting highly placed persons in the country, they must also protect every citizen in the country, and they must not be used against other Nigerians. In America, you will see their police saying their loyalty is to their country, not to their President.”
He gave the warning while delivering the Graduation lecture for the participants of the Executive Intelligence Management Course (EIMC) 14, 2021 at the National Institute for Security Studies (NISS), Abuja, on Thursday.
He also commented on the raid on the residence of Justice Mary Odili and demanded that those involved should be punished.
He said, “One key thing about managing our economy is that people should have confidence in our institutions. In that case, the institutions must be strong. For example, we are talking about the Department of State Service, the DSS must be strong.
