Presidency Orders Withdrawal Of Security Personnel From Politicians by Omooba77: 9:45pm On Apr 06, 2015
The presidency has reportedly ordered the immediate withdrawal of all security personnel attached to politicians and individuals believed to be close friends and associates of the first family and top government functionaries.

Nigerian Tribune gathered that the security personnel involved include the military, police, Department of State Services (DSS), armed squad of the para-military like the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Customs, Nigeria Prisons and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) officials, among others.

It was gathered that when the electioneering campaign was to kick start, the security personnel were massively deployed to individual politicians, who were in support of the re-election of President Jonathan and PDP in general.

The security personnel, especially soldiers and men of the mobile police force, otherwise known as anti-riot policemen served as escorts and personal guards in the convoys and private residences of the individuals close to the President in Abuja and their country homes.

 Roads leading to the homes of these top personnel were said to be barricaded by these security officials and paid with tax payer’s money.

More armed and plain-clothed security agents were also reportedly deployed to the services of some key officers in PDP presidential campaign organisation team, as well as some of the party’s candidates in states such as Rivers State.

One of the soldiers attached to a known politician from the South-South, residing in Asokoro District, Abuja who spoke under condition of anonymity, told Nigerian Tribune on Monday, that all of them have been directed to report at the base with immediate effect for further briefing.

According to him, “we saw our withdrawal coming since the President, having lost the election. We have been with our Oga since, on the orders from the presidential villa and now going back to base.

“We don’t know our new posting yet. One of my friends attached to an ex-militant leader in Bayelsa State phoned me to confirm this, so the tea party is over for us and the politicians. We will now have time for real work,” he declared.

 Nigerian Tribune, on Monday, gathered that all the heads of the security agencies have been duly informed and the need to comply with the presidential order, with immediate effect.

Ok
Yet some people will still be calling Jonathan an Hero... Hero my foot. Imagine giving mere politicians security to intimidate there local communities just because they are supporting his bid for re-election...
In an election that he was beaten flat, yet some people are calling him hero...
For your information, Kayode Fayemi conceded defeat to Fayose not body called him hero, actually that was the normal thing to do, nothing special
Thank God for returning sanity to Nigeria....
