On Thursday, President Muhammadu Buhari, approved the appointment of Yusuf Magaji Bichi, as the new Director-General of the Department of State Services.
This appointment wasn’t an exactly exciting development as some Nigerians on twitter decried what they termed the ‘lopsidedness’ in the appointment of security chiefs.
Others, however, argued that Buhari has the right to appoint those, he would feel comfortable working with, regardless of their tribe.
Are we 2 assume that all is well in the Presidency?

The most unfortunate people from the SOUTH will soon start to defend this nepotism by Buhari in the appointment of the new DSS DG, I trust them…

If Buhari who needs a 2nd term can brazenly take decisions and make appointments without giving a damn what anybody says or thinks, in Nigeria full of intellectuals and informed critics, if he gets a 2nd term, get ready for Saddam Hussein or Gaddafi. Yusuf Magaji Bichi is DSS DG

DSS DG Lawal Daura abuses office, Osinbajo sacks him & appoints Matthew Seiyefa- the
most senior officer in the DSS as Acting DG.
One month later, Buhari removes Seiyefa and replaces him with another Northerner – Yusuf Magaji Bichi.
Your MCM is an unapologetic tribalist.

With the appointment of Yusuf Magaji Bichi as DSS DG. My pain is that nobody is Aso Rock, not even the VP can look Buhari in the eyes and tell him how stupid & dead wrong he is in his decisions. Shame!

If you think Buhari is an ethnic bigot simply because he appointed his kinsman, Yusuf Bichi as DSS DG over your kinsman, Mathew Seiyefa – then you are also an ethnic bigot too.
OBJ had Are as DSS DG (SW)
GEJ had Ekpeyong as DSS DG (SS)
But PMB is the ethnic bigot.

Buhari fires DSS DG, appoints his kinsman as the new Director-General.
Buhari isn’t here to play with Y’all!
This is what Jonathan failed to do with Jega.

While we tear ourselves over who is DSS DG, Nigeria is heading for bankruptcy and not just due to corruption. The fastest train to bankruptcy is our exploding population! We are replicating at almost twice our GDP. I am not an economist but gross poverty is certain.

It’s a symptom of madness called twitteriosis to have an opinion on everything.
The President was once a victim, he’s right to appoint people he feels comfortable to work with.
Btw, no one remembered to criticise the Ag DSS DG when he was appointed.

Again, all Jonathan’s Chief Security Officers including the DSS DG with exception of Police Boss were from the South. Nigeria did not break. We didn’t accuse him of nepotism. We must do away with ethnic sentiments from our daily affairs. All Nigerian have equal right.

Some people think it’s all bants, but see; if Buhari mistakenly wins in 2019 ehn, this DSS DG drama will just be small play. #BuhariMustGo

On Yusuf Magaji Bichi appointment.
Where are all those people that told us Buhari gave Osinbajo the go ahead to sack former DSS DG Daura?
I can only pity for VP Osinbajo. His role has been reduced to visiting markets to share #Tradermoni. A Prof. and a SAN being ridiculed.
