As for the appointment, its no big deal because even the most Igbo hating government in Lagos will not dare sideline lgbos in the administration of lagos because igbos are If not the largest, the second largest ethnic group in Lagos.no wise government can afford to ignore them cos he will need their numerical strength in times.of election.

It appears like this government is only interested in photo-ops. We didn't elect them to pose for camera. They are to initiate and implement policies to arrest this BH scourge (which they are clearly not doing). Baba should remember his promise to end the insurgency on or before 29 July, 2015.

He was surposed to do that on 30th June but instead he went to visit the governor.

Lol, the cowardic fool already got the message and is so shaky. The fear of Aba boys.lol

The Aba crusade will be on the 4th of July.

I challenge you and folks to attempt an attack on Kumuyi, and watch the whole world desend on you.
You probably don't realize Kumuyi is an international preacher.

Your write-up speaks volume about your level of Ignorance, the Bone of contention here is who is saddle with the statutory responsibility of protecting the President as it is practice world wide, not about superiority.
Please, try and develop your self by reading and doing a lot of research so that you won't mock your self again in Public.


The President decide who protect him.

The operations of the State Security Service may arise out of tasking directed personally by the President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces; the National Defense and Security. Council; the National Security Adviser; the Intelligence Community Committee (ICC) or the Joint Intelligence Board (JIB) subject to ratification by the President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed .Forces where considered necessary or desirable.

Oludulicious:


You are missing it by wrongly assuming that the military is superior to the DSS or any law enforcement agency for that matter. Each agency has its specialised role and none is superior to another. It's better you don't delve into "an unfamiliar terrain than mis-inform people ". For your information, the Instrument No 1 that confers power of VIP protection know DSS originated from General Abdulsalam Abubakar, when he was military Head of State, before it became a law by an act of the parliament in 2004! For a military President to give such powers to DSS speaks volumes. The directive by the ADC suggests two things; it's either he is ignorant or he is acting a script. I will go for the latter though. It want to believe the ADC is acting a script and working under the instructions of some powerful forces. Or how do you explain having military personnel as Presidential bodyguards in a democratic government, which has never happened before? That might be setting the stage for the unimaginable. We all know what the military is capable of.

Yes the Military(armed forces) is superior to the DSS/Secrete Service, Police and every Paramilitary force in any country.

The military is the only security organisation the can operate within and outside the borders of any country, as Police, Guards, Secrete service and armed forces.

That is why the President is also the Commander in Chief of the Armed forces.

Most Presidential bodyguards are mixed with Military Elite forces and Secrete Service guys.

Yes the President calls the shots not his ADC.

The ADC should stand down and let the DSS carry out its constitutionally prescribed responsibility.

How can the Aide-de-camp to the President Stand down.

Where do you think he is getting his instructions from?

You probably don't know that the ADC is also the Personal Assistant to the President.

The President's orders to the DSS will go through his ADC, since the ADC coordinates every movement around the President.

Almusatapha was CSO to Abacha.

ADC don't go the barracks for troops, the DHQ assign all the military personnel to the president.

The banking/Private sector the CSO is the internal security staff from the Bank, while the Police commissioner assign special guards to the banks.

Most bank CSO's are SPY Police members, this help them blend well with normal policemen.

Truth be told, the president's ADC has no authority to write a memo...not to talk of issuing directives to SSS. His job is just an orderly to mr president. The head of all security in the villa is the CSO...chief security officer. This is the man who has the power to arrange all the presidents journey, map security network and movement around the president and screen visitors. The current CSO ...AbubAkar mani...has been with Buhari for a long time now and is even more loyal than the ADC who was only handpicked few weeks to swearing in.

But if u look at it we'll, the CSO doesn't necessary have to be whoever is the head of the SSS team in the villa. So, the ADC sees himself as head of army team in the villa and feels he could also be CSO after all, no formal appointment has been made of a CSO.

This whole confusion boils down to the fact that Buhari is yet to appoint a Chief of Staff. The chief of staff is the head of govt of Aso rock presidential villa....he is the only one that all departments must listen to. He is the one to organise the villa activities. Right now , what we see is a show of power...how can the ADC sideline the supposed CSO....are they mates?

I hope there won't be a shootout at the villa.

The CSO is a Paramilitary Personnel, while the ADC assigned by the DHQ is a Military personnel.

The Military is superior to every Paramilitary organisation in Nigerian, Police,DSS, e.t.c

Due the superiority tussle among the GUYS, the other Presidents usually bring in Retired Military personnel (from DMI) to head the DSS, this way the DSS/SSS guys will blend easily with the military guy.

The Head of the DSS under OBJ regime was a Retired Military Officer from DMI.

The comment above gives me hope that some Nigerians still think critically.

Op, I'm sorry I disagree with some parts of the article.
The ADC has no power to do what he did, he was acting on the instructions of his boss. Who gives a lieutenant colonel power to deploy troops to the.presidential suite, is that not done by the Army high command ?
This crass show and total disregard for our constitution was done by a man who wants to destroy what we have been building for 16 years. BUHARI IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC LEADER AND THIS ACTION SHOWS WHERE WE ARE HEADED.
The bolded conveys my thought exactly.

Wrong the ADC has power to control and coordinate all the security Personnel around the Person(President,Governor e.t.c) he is protecting.
The Military high Command has automatically delegated the role to him?(ADC) immediately the President choose him.
The SSS are still protecting the President and his Family in the Villa but not within the President close-ring.

Oh, that one? grin There was no combat there - that was just basically miscommunication between the MI6 operatives and their spooks in Benghazi, and they never had enough intel before landing there. I'm sure you do know that those who caused the uprising in Benghazi were MI6 spooks and the folks who arrested them were a bunch of ragtag folks and if they were actually in danger, they would've killed those people with ease. grin

Don't let me post videos of how the Taliban destroyed over 10 US Navy SEALs twice in Afghanistan; the black hawk down in Somalia; and the recent US Navy SEALs mission in Somalia and how they ran for their lives against Al Shabaab. Please, you can NEVER compare anything US in terms of troops to the UK - even folks in the US army don't do that - they know what time it's. But the US has bigger and better weapons though.

Can you tell us the last time British Forces engage in any crisis.

As at today US special forces are actively engaged in crisis in Europe, Africa and Meddle- East.

It's a known fact that Retired US special forces personnels, are always recruited by the Private military contractors.

Even the Russians don't take the British serious when it comes to Battle, because most British equipments are manufactured aboard and personnel are trained in joint operations.

Lol. I think you're overrating the effects of fighting weak nations on combat readiness. Using football analogy: that's more or less like saying cos Brazil hasn't lost any game against minnows in the last 12 games or so after the world cup - this Brazilian squad is as balanced/competitive as the German, or even the Belgian team. The only thing you achieve while fighting minnows is to test the impact of new weapons but you don't get the necessary test for combat. The big guns are a different kettle of fish entirely and you won't know what it's like till you get into the "ring" with them. I also believe that's why a few heads in the Pentagon always get carried away sometimes and they tend to underestimate a lot of countries like what happened during the Georgian war and the utter shock of the swift and near perfect Russian response - despite all the money, equipment, and military personnel they rinsed there. Ditto the on-going Ukrainian crisis - and how the Russians took them by surprise with the perfect tactical/strategic capture of Crimea without firing a single bullet. Israel with all its noise and bullying of the Palestinians got its arse handed to it by the well-trained Hezbollah troops in 2006.

Big countries won't fight asymmetrically - it's going to be a conventionally war, with all cards on the table, and hopefully, without nukes. Advanced tactical strategy is the name of the game - and the morale/fortitude of the troops would be highly important. However, US soldiers aren't the most mentally tough out there, and they've an habit of breaking down when they face adversity - that's an open secret. [/b]Also, the US conventional war doctrine is based mostly on air superiority and air cover for the troops - once you take that away, how'll they be able to hack it against troops whose mentality is death before breaking and who dares, wins? And best believe all those military bases and whatever advantage the yanks have in reach would be targeted all over the planet with ICBMs as soon as it kicks off - and the field is going to level up faster than you think.

[b]Don't talk about the US marines - they're average at best. They can't even compete with British Army and Royal Marines, or any of the regular European forces. Everyone knows that and it's evident in all NATO exercises. As for Delta Force, Green Brets, and Navy SEALs - they're all just one under different banners -
just normal Special Forces like every other country has, but two are just less efficient than the SEALs. That's like SBS and SAS in the UK. In a real war situation - I don't even think NATO can defeat Russia (the new Russia) in continental Europe and most military analysts will tell you that. And if the US and China were to go at it in the Pacific - I won't be on anyone. But if it were to start dragging, I'd give the Chinese the upper-hand. However, if it becomes a global things - then the permutation would change depending on how balanced the allies on either side are. Also, during war time - money would be available to everyone cos that's how banks make their money. And all these countries have more than enough raw materials to build whatever they want in abundance, to build to keep fighting the war for at least a decade or more.

You lot read too much yank sabre-rattling - wars and capabilities aren't televised on TV by MSM nor are they scripted in Hollywood. When you see folks like Henry Kissinger begging the war hawks in Pentagon for caution, you should know it's deeper than rap. grin
LOL,
I have noticed you always undermine the US when it come to international Relations and Military might.

But the US seems to be the only Country fighting wars for the past 20 years till date, even when other countries are pulling out.

And don't compare the NAVY SEAL or Marines to British SAS, the same SAS guys that were disgraced in Libya.

Only the Russian Spetsnaz can confidently challenge the US NAVY SEAL or Marines.

I noticed that your account of the story was not exactely what happened. I would have chose to overlook it when I saw it on nairaland, but for prosterity sake I would say the real truth.



That was not true, he was attending to an elderly man and there was a queue before you which you jumped (I was the 3rd guy on the queue). Yes he ignored you for few seconds, but you didn't tell us that you were the one who snapped at him first not the other way round.



Totally false he NEVER called you a goat, or fling any card at you. I was there, you snapped at him first saying that he should answer you first before following the queue, and the reason you gave was that you had been looking for him since yesterday although he raised his voice at you, while trying to explain to you to follow the queue.



True.



That was not the reason he gave. He said he won't apologize to you because he was not wrong.
.


Lies.

Please, please I understand you are hurt cos you weren't attended to on time but that does not mean you should go about spreading falsehoods and whining like a spoilt selfish kid. There were people you met at the bank follow the queue and you will be attended to, you are not more special than the rest of us.

Honestly she sound like a spoilt selfish kid. angry


@OP, You lied,

She came to the bank for ATM pin and you for BVN, and there is no way both of you can be on the-same queue.

And for you to acknowledge she called the head office and the guy refused to apologies, means you work in that Bank.
