Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for his appointment of Yusuf Bichi to replace Matthew Seiyefa as the Director General of the Department of State Service, DSS, describing it as “height of nepotism and tribalism.”

Rising from its national executive, EXCO, meeting held in Umuahia, the Ohanaeze youths insisted that President Buhari’s appointments, particularly in the nation’s security architecture, did not encourage the much desired unity in the Nigeria.

The group in a communiqué  by the Acting National Leader, Kingsley Dozie, the National Secretary, Madubuike Uchenna and the National Publicity Secretary, Osmond Nkeoma, claimed the appointment had “shown that President Buhari is a sectional and tribalistic leader.”

“We expect Nigeria to be a country where all citizens, irrespective of their ethnicity, religion or region would have equal access to public office.  The sack of Mathew Seiyefa, a southerner and his replacement of Yusuf Bichi, a northerner, clearly shows that President Muhammadu Buhari is sectional and tribalistic in his leadership. This action is a continuation of the insensitivity of the President Buhari government which is manifesting in most of the loop-sided appointments he has made.”

“The appointment of a person who has retired from service is in bad fate, confusing and dangerous to the service and to the country as a whole. This is because the DSS is supposed to be an internal mechanism to protect the country against enemies, both foreign and domestic. And it’s seen as a service where officers who are experienced and competent are supposed to lead without minding their tribe, religion or region but only efficiency, but when you bring someone who retired to head the service it’s improper. “We don’t have personal issues with any of them but we believe that the idea of picking people in retirement to head a significant intelligence service is not proper; we reject it entirely.

“We see these as a deliberate policy of ethnic-based political domination, the President recalled a retired a Northerner to replace Seiyefa Mathew, a southerner who is competent to head the DSS. We have 16 service chiefs from one part of the country and Mr. President went ahead to replace Seiyefa from the South with a Northerner which we see clearly as a negation of the spirit of oneness. “This shows that the unity of Nigeria means nothing to our President and has shown with this action that he is for some people and against everyone else,” Ohanaeze youths said in the communiqué.
