Senate To Probe Alleged Lopsided Recruitment In DSS

The Senate yesterday endorsed the move by its committee on Federal Character, to investigate the alleged lopsided recruitment recently carried out by the Department of State Services (DSS).

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Federal Character, Senator Tijjani Abubakar Kaura (APC Zamfara North), had during plenary declared that his committee based on petitions received from concerned Nigerians on recent recruitment carried out by DSS, resolved to probe the exercise considered to be highly lopsided.

He said the probe would go a long way in restoring the confidence of Nigerians in the principles of federal character required for such exercise on the basis of equity, justice and fairness.

 

 

Accordingly, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, gave the Committee the nod to go ahead with the probe and update it with its findings.
Reports from the alleged lopsided recruitment exercise carried out by DSS last month revealed wide disparity in state-by-state allocation of the 479 newly commissioned cadet officers.
