The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has challenged the Directorate of State Security to produce and show Nigerians the copies of the cards it claimed that APC is cloning in its Data Office in Lagos. The party said that while this has become to deflate the satanic inclination of the DSS to employ state public offices to further the evil plots of the PDP and egregiously lie about it.
In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Joe Igbokwe, the party said that the present leadership of the DSS has turned what should be a viable state security outfit to an attack dog willing and ever ready to do the dirty biddings of the PDP. It said that the party is ready to take up the DSS on its many lies and partisan
“We note that the DSS has been very prominent in the prosecution of PDP’s dirty electoral tasks in both Ekiti and Osun State. The clearly partisan and outlandish statement of its spokesperson, Marylyn, who shamelessly purveys PDP dirty propaganda, immediately after the Osun election leaves Nigerians in no doubt about the obnoxious role the DSS has been made to assume as the desperation of the PDP to remain in power thickens. We note that the DSS was equally prominent in the illegal and c4iminal invasion of the National Assembly last week for the sole purpose of enforcing the illegal and clearly self serving agenda of the PDP and the presidency.
“It is only natural that this shameful affront on the country’s legislature was quickly followed by an atrocious invasion of the APC Data Center in Lagos clearly on the instigation of the PDP and for no clear and concise reason than that PDP’s desire to sow fear and intimidation on the opposition. The laughable explanation of the DSS spokesperson that the Center was being used to clone permanent voters card is not only cheap but only confirms the hatchet role the DSS has assumed on PDP’s dirty ways to retain power at all costs, even with Nigerians clearly fed up with its misrule. We believe that such allegation must be followed up with hard facts and which hard facts could be more convincing than the DSS presenting to Nigerians copies of the cloned cards, directly linked to the APC data. What stops the DSS from immediately availing Nigerians of the cloned cards that supposedly informed its evil attack on the opposition during its press conference? We hereby demand that the DSS present the copies of the cards it was able to impound during its insidious raid to Nigerians so as to justify what is clearly a scandalous political attack by an increasingly desperate and unsettled party and presidency on the opposition. It is certain that the DSS must have started manufacturing its ‘evidences’ after it had gone to town with its smear antic but we assure them that they will fail in this evil mission for the PDP.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the APC Data Center is a legitimate operation by a legitimate Nigerian political party responsible for the digitalization of the membership of the APC and had carried out its lawful operations in adherence to the laws of the country. That the DSS has become a purveyor to the lies and dirty intrigues of the PDP cannot change this fact and we see what happens as far more serious than the Watergate Scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon in the United States.
“We are really baffled at how critical security agencies of the state have been muddled and clearly diverted to partisan influences. The police and the DSS are deep sucked in this infamy that have directly or indirectly led to the worsening of the security of the country while these two agencies go about hunting opponents of the PDP. It is a monumental shame that the DSS has become such a rampaging attack dog for the PDP when it should be working to enhance the security of the nation. It is baffling how President Jonathan and the PDP have turned a critical security outfit into the raging attack dogs of the PDP. Is it any wonder that they have left Nigerians to their fate as insecurity threatens to overrun the entire country while doing the dirty missions of the PDP?
“We expect the DSS to immediately display the cloned cards it alleged the APC were manufacturing in its Data Center and we use this medium to tell Nigerians that the APC will neither flag nor be intimidated in its resolve and desire to end PDP’s reign of corruption, ineptitude, division, impunity and lawlessness.”
