Mark, a retired army general was quoted in a book, “Against the Run of Play: How an incumbent president was defeated in Nigeria” by chairman of ThisDay Board of Editors, that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) intentionally provided the president with unrealistic voting projections in the north.

DSS Recruitment Scandal: Presidency “Official” Reacts

So it’s now that Muhammadu Buhari and DSS Lawal Daura, both from Katsina, are in charge that the “system” remember to do balancing? In other words they want Nigerians to believe that Ekiti, Akwa Ibom, Lagos, etc has more people in DSS than Katsina and Kano? Sigh!

The presidency, through the back door, responded to report about the widespread lopsidedness in the latest recruitment exercise by the Department of Security Service (DSS).

It was reported on Friday by Premium Times how the DSS loaded its agency with more people from the North than from the South of Nigeria in its 2016 recruitment.

So lopsided was the hiring that more people were employed from President Buhari’s Katsina State alone (51) than from all the South-east states combined (44). Katsina is also also the home state of the Director General of the SSS, Lawal Daura.

A breakdown of the newly commissioned cadet officers on geopolitical basis revealed that 165 are from the North-west, about four times more than those picked from the South-south (42).
