2023 Presidency: DSS Warns Buhari On Muslim-Muslim Ticket
The Department of State Service (DSS), Friday, warned about the consequences of a presidential Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 general election.
The letter containing the warning was sent to President Muhammadu Buhari by the DSS, through the office of the National Security Adviser. The contents were shared by an online newspaper, Peoples Gazette.
The document urged the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to reconsider security implications of his selection before making it public.
According to THE Gazette, “The SSS produced the report and handed a copy to the NSA.
“The NSA looked at the report and added it for security briefing to the president.
“Simply put, our understanding is that the alliance will destabilise Nigeria and embolden attacks on Christian citizens from their fellow Muslim citizens.
“The distrust Christians are likely to harbour against a presidency occupied by two Muslims won’t make our work easy at national security level.”
Leadership.ng quotes a source at the Presidency as saying that, “President Buhari was not involved in the deliberations that led to Tinubu’s announcement of Kashim Shettima as his 2023 running mate to the ire of Christians across the country.”
According to the source, “People can say whatever they like about Mr President, but as a senior intelligence administrator, I can guarantee you he was not involved in Tinubu’s decision at all.”Join our Conversation forums
