The Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has earlier invited the Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS) Lawal Daura into Aso Villa before the news of his sack broke out.
Mystatenews.com earlier reported that the Acting president Osinbajo sacked the Mr Lawal Daura. We also gathered the reasons for his sack and what Osinbajo discussed with him before he was sacked.
Osinbajo grilled Mr Lawal Daura for about 30 minutes before he took his action. He asked the DSS Boss the reason behind the siege of National Assembly Complex and who authorized him to do so.
In his defense, he responded that he was approached by the APC lawmakers to block the access of PDP Senators from gaining access into the Assembly Complex to facilitate the removal of Senate President and his deputy.
the plot, Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan (Yobe North) will be picked as Senate President while Hope Uzodinma (Imo West) will emerge as his deputy.
After he finished his explanation, the Acting President was already furious and told him to go. He was never aware of everything that happened. He only heard news of National Assembly invasion like other Nigerians.
A course close to the Acting President disclosed that “The sack of the Daura is within the powers of the acting President. Daura hobnobbed with party officials and the some lawmakers as if he was answerable to them.
“What happened today was a breach; a total disregard for the Acting President. If anything had happened to anyone, it would have been on his head. People would accuse him of incompetence.
“The situation embarrasses the country too as some countries through their missions in Nigeria have complained to the presidency that they were worried about what was happening.”
