“For the avoidance of doubt, the Service condemns, in its entirety, the infamous act of Jaja and informs the public to note that he is no longer a member of this prestigious organization.

The Service reaffirms its commitment to professionalism, excellence and the rule of law. The DSS, as usual, rededicates itself to the security of the ongoing electoral exercise and reassures the nation of its sustained transparency and accountability in dealing with citizens.” Peter Afunanya explained.

Nigerians went to the polls on Saturday, February 23, 2019, to choose a president and parliamentary leaders in the 469-member national assembly.
