Acting DG of DSS Reiterates Commitment To Intelligence Gathering
The Acting Director-General of the Department of State Service Matthew Seifa has said that the service will henceforth redouble its effort in intelligence gathering and analysis.
He made this known on Thursday while addressing the media on the services core mandate in protecting National Unity.
He expressed concern over the level of poor partnership amongst agencies in the management of security as he promised to strengthen the relationship.
On the issue of his relationship with anti-graft agency, he said the service will review the situation and come up with new ways of working together.
His briefing is coming days after the sack of the former Director-General Lawal Daura. The former DSS DG was sacked by the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo over the blockade of the National Assembly by the operatives of the DSS on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the new DG, Seifa has said that such things would not happen under his leadership as he called on the staffers to sit tight and be ready to work for the betterment of the state security.
