DSS Warns Of Plot To Interrupt Governorship Elections

The Directorate of State Services (DSS) has claimed that there are “orchestrated attempts” by some people to completely destabilize law and order and scuttle the scheduled elections in several parts of the Federation.

DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, in a statement on Wednesday, however, warned the individuals or groups no matter how highly placed they are to abort such plans.

The secret service therefore cautioned political players to be law-abiding as Nigerians head to the polls for the governorship and state assemblies’ elections.

The DSS said it is committed to the safety and security of citizens who may wish to go out to exercise their civic responsibility.

“All and sundry are, therefore, enjoined to abide by the rules of engagement particularly the Electoral Act and extant guidelines,” the statement added.

Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the governorship and state house of assembly elections scheduled for Saturday, March 11.

In a statement on Wednesday night, INEC spokesman, Festus Okoye, said the elections will now hold on Saturday, March 18.
