Ijaw youths berate presidency over alleged moves to replace Seifa

A coalition of Ijaw Youths from the nine States of the Niger Delta region, yesterday faulted the alleged moves by the presidency to remove Mr. Matthew Seiyefa as the Director General of the Department of Security Services (DSS) and reinstate the sacked Lawal Daura.

According to the Ijaw Youths, though President Muhammad Buhari has the power to hire and fire heads of security agencies as the Commander-in-Chief, his power must also follow corresponding federal character principles, which the alleged removal of Matthew Seifa as DG, DSS will violate.

The Ijaw Youths, under the Umbrella of the Ijaw Youths Council (IYC), worldwide through its President, Comrade Eric Omare, argued that the plot against Mathew Seifa and the people of the Southern region, “is unthinkable and an affront on the sensibility of Nigerians for the Presidency to contemplate sacking Mr. Seiyefa and reinstate Mr. Lawal Daura”.
