May 29th: DSS Warns Against Unruly Behaviours, Non-Adherence To Protocols

The Department of State Services, DSS, has warned against unruly behaviours and non-adherence to protocols by Nigerians at the Presidential Inauguration on Monday, May 29th.

A statement by the Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, DSS, on Thursday, said it would be recalled that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Transition Council (PTC) on 18th May, 2023 held a World Press Conference during which he announced activities for the Presidential inauguration.

The major highlight of the activities is the swearing-in of the President on 29th May, 2023 in Abuja. On the same date, new Governors will also be inaugurated in most of the States.

He added that the DSS is aware of plans by subversive elements to disrupt the programmes in parts of the country. The aim is to undermine security agencies’ efforts at ensuring peaceful ceremonies as well as creating panic and fear among members of the public.

Based on these, citizens, the media and Civil Society Organisations are advised to adhere strictly to security and civil protocols during the events.

The agency also urged Nigerians to shun fake news, false alarms, skewed reportage/narratives and sensationalism that may likely inflame division, tension and violence prior to and after the exercises.

“This is more so that such undesirable acts will serve no purpose other than destroying national unity and cohesion. Additionally, all unauthorised (and unaccredited) persons are warned to stay away from restricted and certain designated areas at the event venues. The Service reiterates its earlier call for the populace to remain calm and law abiding. Meanwhile, it will continue to sustain collaboration with sister agencies to ensure successful inaugurations,” it added.
