DISMISSES JACKSON UDE’S FALSE ACCUSATIONS

By Vincess Okushi

The Department of State Services (DSS) has said that there is no subsidy grant for staff made available for the service, adding that once it is allocated, staff will, as usual, receive what is due to them.

This was made available to newsmen in a statement by the Director, PR & Strategic Comms Department of State Services National Headquarters, Dr Peter Afunanya on 2nd December 2023

The statement aimed at discrediting spurious publications by one Jackson Ude on his Twitter handle @jacksonpbn, against the person and office of the DGSS, Yusuf Bichi

Dr. Peter said the Service under Bichi’s administration has, in all ramifications, evidently catered for the welfare of active and retired personnel, noting that,

THE SERVICE HEREBY STATES THAT THE ALLEGATIONS ARE ENTIRELY FALSE. IT WISHES TO CLARIFY THAT NEITHER THE DG NOR ANYONE ACTING ON HIS DIRECTIVE HAS LOOTED A STAFF SUBSIDY GRANT. NO SUCH GRANT HAS BEEN MADE AVAILABLE TO THE SERVICE 
THIS IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE AND CAN BE VERIFIED BY UDE. 

SIMILARLY, THE SO-CALLED “GOODBYE ALLOWANCE” THAT UDE ACCUSED THE DG OF GRANTING HIMSELF IS NON-EXISTENT. IT IS ONLY THE IMAGINATION OF THE WRITER AND HIS SPONSORS. BUT ASSUMING THE DG IS PAID ANY SEVERANCE PACKAGE AT THE END OF HIS TENURE, HOW IS THAT UNETHICAL AND OUTSIDE THE ESTABLISHED PUBLIC SERVICE RULE? 
WHILE UDE IS AT HIS MISCHIEF ONCE AGAIN AND HAS CONTINUED TO SMEAR THE IMAGE OF MR BICHI AS WELL AS PRESENT HIM AS CORRUPT, FACTS AT THE DSS SHOW OTHERWISE. RECALLED FROM RETIREMENT IN 2018 AND APPOINTED THE DGSS, BICHI IS SEEN AS SPARTAN, ACCOUNTABLE, TRANSPARENT, AND INDEED, INCORRUPTIBLE. HE HAS REMAINED RESOLUTE IN RUNNING THE SERVICE AND HAS SHOWN UNCOMMON COMMITMENT TO THE MANAGEMENT OF ITS AFFAIRS. HIS TOP PRIORITIES ARE STAFF WELFARE AND THE JUDICIOUS APPLICATION OF HUMAN AND MATERIAL RESOURCES

Dr. Peter therefore urged the public to disregard the falsehood capable of creating division and violence as the DGSS seeks to take appropriate legal steps of redress.
