•IYC Secretary General Alfred Kemepado

The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide has described the rumoured plots to sack the Acting Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Bar. Matthew Seiyefa, as corrupt and evil.

Alfred Kemepado, Secretary-General of the Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, in a statement signed in Yenagoa, said, Bar. Matthew Seiyefa was nominated for the top job based on merit and achievements in service, and that should not be replaced with nepotism as some quarters are already promoting.

The IYC scribe called on Bar. Matthew Seiyefa to shun desperate politicians whose trade is to politicise the nation’s security system. In his statement, Mr. Kemepado said that it is becoming obvious that desperate politicians are working tirelessly to thwart the noble achievements of the new D.G, especially in his re-organisation of the service to fit into its founding principles and values as expected in a democratic society.

He said from Bar. Seiyefa’s inaugural speech, to his actions, has not only shown that he is a thoroughbred, but he is adding value daily to the President Buhari-led government in the areas of respect to human rights, and even more. He noted that within the short period of his service, we have built confidence in him and we are willing to work with him.

“We are calling on President Buhari to totally prohibit the politicisation of our security system and deal decisively with the promoters of such, especially in these days of various political challenges.

“Furthermore, the IYC Scribe thanks President Buhari again for considering a son of the South of Nigeria for the job as it has put to rest to a large extent the agitation of the one-sided appointment of security chiefs,” Kemepado said.

He said those who are flaunting nepotism at the expense of national security for their private gains are not just enemies of democracy, but enemies of the President Buhari administration in these challenging times.

Kemepado called for Seiyefa’s confirmation as substantive D.G and for the urges President Buhari to protect him to concentrate on his good job.
