FORMER speaker of Nigeria’s Federal House of Representatives Hon Ghali Umar Na’abba has been invited for questioning by the Department of State Services (DSS) for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari’s security record.
Last week, Hon Na’abba accused President Buhari of turning Nigeria into a failed state, describing him as an irresponsive and incompetent leader of the country. At the moment, Nigeria is plagued with insecurity as in the northeast, Boko Haram is waging war against the government, heavily-armed Fulani cattle herdsmen are slaughtering people on a daily basis and other violent crimes like kidnapping, banditry and armed robbery are rife.
However, it appears that Hon Na’abba’s criticism has not gone down well with the government as he has been summoned to appear at the DSS office in Abuja tomorrow.
National Consultative Front (NCF) spokesperson, Tanko Yunusa, said that the former speaker will honour the invitation and appear in person.
Mr Yunusa said: “Please be notified that on Friday the DSS sent an invitation to National Consultative Front co-chair and former speaker of Nigeria, Rt Hon Ghali Umar Na’abba, after his very profound interview on Channels Television on Thursday in regard to the NCF agenda to bring about a new Nigeria that works for all. Our leader, Ghali Umar Na’abba, has decided to honour the DSS invitation and therefore shall be visiting the DSS headquarters in Abuja on Monday at 12noon.
Mr Yunusa called on all NCF organs, structures and allies nationwide to be on alert, as the current situation called for vigilance. He added that eternal vigilance in the price of liberty which all Nigerians should be ready to pay.
