The lies Against DSS DG, Yusuf Bichi and the Truth

By Comrade Oladimeji Odeyemi.

Politics is everywhere and it’s in everything but the bitter aspect of politicking is the Pull Him Down (PHD) Syndrome, a tool used by antagonists to destroy credibility of credible people by spreading unfounded rumours and lies just to smear someone’s image and subject such a person to ridicule in the eyes of esteemed members of the public .

Mallam Yusuf Bichi, the Director General of the Department of State Service, DSS was recently a victim of the PHD Syndrome when a delusional
element, Jackson Ude who on his X (Twitter) handle @jacksonpnb went to the media space to claim that the Director General siphoned an imaginary payment of Thirty-five thousand naira (₦35,000) meant for the payment of wages approved by President Bola Tinubu for personnel of the service.

He also claimed that Bichi would pocket N200million as he prepares to leave the agency he had once retired from and that Bichi’s tenure is the worst in the history of DSS in Nigeria and that the agency’s personnel are angry with him.

This unsubstantiated claims and diatribe against the DG generated controversy in the media space, some gullible element like him who have no idea of how DSS operates deliberately choose to believe him even when the authority of the DSS through Dr Peter Afunaya, Director, PR & Strategic Communications of the Service came to the open to debunk the story and gave an insght into the true situation.

Afunaya, while clarifying the claims said the allegations are entirely false. Part of his statement states, “It wishes to clarify that neither the DG nor anyone acting on his directive has looted staff subsidy grant. No such grant has been made available to the Service and once that is allocated, staff will, as usual, receive what is due them”. Mr Bichi has, in all ramifications, evidently catered for the welfare of active and retired personnel of the service. This is a common knowledge and this could also be verified by the said Ude.

Similarly, the so called “goodbye allowance” which Ude accused the DG of granting himself is non-existent. It is only an imagination of the writer and his sponsors. But assuming the DG is paid any severance package at the end of his tenure, how is that unethical and outside established public service rule?

Recalled Bichi who retired in 2018 from the service, was recalled back and appointed the DG, DSS due to his spartan, accountable, transparent and incorruptible character.

He has remained resolute in running the Service and has shown uncommon commitment in the management of it’s affairs. His top priorities are staff welfare and judicious application of human and material resources. Any misleading narratives to the contrary are therefore unacceptable.”

A foremost traditional ruler in Yorubaland Olowu of Owu Kuta, Oba Hameed Adekunle Oyelude Makama, CON, Tegbosun III, who also reacted to the baseless allegations, tesfified to the credibility of the DG and cautioned against dirty politics against the DSS.

Olowu who stated that the intention of the purveyors of the fake news is to cause disaffection between the officers and the DG, maintained that “BICHI” does not take welfare packages of officers and personnel for granted that’s why many operatives and stakeholders wants President Tinubu to retain the services of the DG. This false narrative is dead on arrival because the Service has been enjoying series of packages even before President Tinubu came on board”

Several other groups and individuals including, the Coalition of Civil Society Groups Against Terrorism in Nigeria in defending the DG opined that the DSS under the leadership of Mallam Yusuf Bichi operates within the bounds of the law and adheres to international best practices because he is an astute and versatile administrator, a resourceful, a highly detribalized Nigerian, an intelligence officer of immense repute and more importantly a transparent and prudent leader, who possesses a high level of experience and exposure that has no doubt repositioned and made the Service one that Nigerians and the personnel are proud of”.

Bichi whose sterling performance and dedication to duty stood him out as an officer served meritoriously in different capacities such as a State Director, Director in the National Headquarter Directorates of Security Enforcement, Operations, Intelligence, Inspectorate, Administration and Finance, National Assembly Liaison and the State Services Academy Lagos, one of the training institutions of the Service.

Mr. Bichi is no doubt an Intelligence Officer of great excellence. Known for his disposition to mentoring young and upcoming officers, the DG, DSS is astute, modest and has a mien that attracts. He is an urbane man and brings his wealth of experience to bear on his job. This constantly fuels his passion for creativity and innovation. Predictably, this has led to several reforms since his assumption of office as the DG,DSS.

I think by now the purveyors of the fake news and their paymasters would have known the fact that tarnishing Bichi’s image to score cheap popularity and political goal is dead on arrival, no one is saying Mallam Bichi is a saint but his records of achievements over the years attested to the fact that Bichi’s tenure is one of the best time in the DSS because of his leadership style and vision.

In reiterating his mission statement, he said, “my vision is to create a friendly working environment, enhance staff capacities through training and welfare, as well as ensure that the DSS remains a democratically-complaint intelligence agency in Nigeria”.

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy Fulfilled As Deadly Flood Hits UAE, Kenya, Burundi (VIDEO)

Niger: One Week After Primate Ayodele’s Warnings, Bandits Attack Nigerian Soldiers (VIDEO)

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy Fulfilled As Deadly Flood Hits UAE, Kenya, Burundi (VIDEO)

If only leaders of nations are committed to listening to God-given instructions and warnings, the world would be a better place free of unnecessary chaos and panic but the incessant ignoramus attitude towards divine instructions by leaders make people become endangered in their own world.

God has blessed us with vessels that he speaks through, he has provided us with prophets like Primate Ayodele who on a daily basis shares the mind of God with mankind. Through vessels like Primate Ayodele, God warns presidents of countries ahead of time against unpleasant happenings but at all times, these warnings are ignored and sometimes, citizens sacrifice their lives because of the obstinacy of their leaders.

There is currently an issue of flooding globally which has led to the death of several people, displacement of thousands, destruction of properties worth billions of dollars and panic across continents but these could have all been avoided if leaders of the countries had listened to Primate Ayodele when he warned them in 2023 and early 2024.

The United Arab Emirates, a nation that had never recorded any heavy rain fall until a few weeks ago, is still counting losses and struggling to get back on its feet due to a deadly flooding that swept through the country.

The rainfall, which flooded streets, uprooted palm trees and shattered building facades, has never been seen in the Middle Eastern nation since records began in 1949. In the popular tourist destination Dubai, flights were canceled; traffic came to a halt and schools closed.

One-hundred millimeters (nearly 4 inches) of rain fell over the course of just 12 hours on Tuesday, according to weather observations at the airport – around what Dubai usually records in an entire year, according to United Nations data.

The rain fell so heavily and so quickly that some motorists were forced to abandon their vehicles as the floodwater rose and roads turned into rivers.

Meanwhile, Primate Ayodele had warned first in 2022 that he foresees climatic problems in the world which would cost a lot of money, lives and properties. He revealed then that the issue of flooding will come up in places that it has never happened before. He called on world leaders not to take climatic problems with levity because it will turn out to be very serious.

These were his words:

‘’I am seeing water and ecology problems, floods in Africa and many places that it hasn’t happened before … .natural catastrophe is imminent in 2023/2024. The issue of climatic problems must be taken very seriously, they must not joke with it….what we are saying will cost the world a lot of money, lives and properties..’’

In his 2024 prophecy to the United Arab Emirates, Primate Ayodele called for prayers against disasters that will cause problems in the country.

These were his words:

‘’UNITED ARAB EMIRATE: The Emirate should pray against any disaster that will cause problems in the country. I foresee an unexpected incident in the Emirate that will require the people to be more careful than ever before.’’

Unfortunately, the prophecy has been fulfilled with the unexpected disastrous flooding that has shut down activities in the highly revered United Arab Emirates.

In the same vein, Kenya is currently battling with the effects of flooding that swept through almost half of the country.

At least 32 people have been killed and two are missing after flash floods swept as a result of the flood. Some 103,500 people in all have been affected.

Kenya has registered heavy rain since mid-March but downpours have intensified over the past week, leading to mass flooding. The Kenyan Red Cross says it has carried out over 188 rescues since the onset in March.

Some roads in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi were closed Wednesday and several neighborhoods remained submerged after another day of heavy rainfall.

In Primate Ayodele’s 2024 prophecies to the nation, he called on Kenyans to pray against flooding and cases of collapsed buildings.

These were his words

‘’KENYA : The spirit of God says Kenyans must pray against assassinations and the killing of any governor. I foresee there will be bomb scares and killings. They must pray against floods and cases of collapsed buildings. The spirit of God says the efforts of the Kenyan President William Ruto will be troubled and not appreciated. He should pray not to encounter a crisis in his government Cabinet. He must be careful against protests even as health workers will go on street protests in Kenya.’’

Similarly, People in Burundi are struggling to cope with flooding after months of heavy rains, with hundreds of thousands being displaced and many homes and schools damaged.

The relentless rain has resulted in the level of water in Lake Tanganyika rising considerably, causing chaos for communities living along its shores.

Lake Tanganyika’s rising waters have invaded the port of Bujumbura, Burundi’s economic capital, disrupting business there and elsewhere in the country.

This has also fulfilled the prophecy of Primate Ayodele warning African countries that there will be flooding and other natural disasters.

Primate Ayodele has always said that he doesn’t celebrate the fulfillment of his prophecies and doesn’t pray that they come to pass but world leaders have to start following divine instructions for the sake of their citizens and in order to avoid calamities like this.

The Chairman of The Mandate Movement, Abdullahi Ayinde Enilolobo, conveyed his gratitude to Governor Sanwo-Olu through a member of the group’s Central Working Committee (CWC), Prince Adewale Arogundade, for spearheading various interventions aimed at mitigating the adverse effects of inflationary trends. A total of 300,000 households are expected to benefit from the inaugural program.

According to Enilolobo, “This holistic approach shows Governor Sanwo-Olu’s commitment to addressing the multifaceted challenges facing Lagosians and ensuring that no one is left behind in the pursuit of progress. Additionally, measures such as free ante-natal care, reduced transportation fares, and support for small businesses underscore the government’s dedication to improving the quality of life for all residents.

“We at The Mandate Movement commend Governor Sanwo-Olu for this initiative put together for the residents of Lagos, which also collorates with the wonders of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration. This clearly shows that the All Progressive Congress (APC) remains a beacon of hope for Lagosians, and Nigerians at large.”

Residents across Lagos have begun to laud the ‘Eko Cares’ initiative, stating that the government has shown determination to prioritize the well-being of its citizens, embodying the principles of empathy, inclusivity, and resilience in the face of adversity.
