cool


This man is Highly Intelligent

he once gave a lecture at staff college Jos and i was marveled by his knowledge and Intellects, he is one of Kanuri's finest

After he came on board as DSS boss from a director, detained suspects got better treatment, no torture , good food and better sleeping kit.. this Elzakzaky , Sowore and Hanah's Sim Card guy all testified to, his reform lasted years after him... this guy introduced the P90 riffle after refusing the Ak47 and Civil war riffles (the long guns used by Customs)

As far as I am concerned, all these useless institutions like National institute for State Security, National institute of Policy and Strategy, National War College etc, should be scrapped!! They are nothing but drain pipes to the country's purse.
Defence Think Tanks that are yet to formulate a comprehensive strategy towards containing a decade long insurgency are nothing but useless

Buhari remains a terrorist whose only achievement in office is to gallivant round the world and take pictures while the masses suffer in penury..

Hanan Buhari is just following in her father's footsteps

Re: Afakirya Gadzama Appointed Chairman Governing Board NISS by Confirmedzombie: 3:03pm On Jan 14
I'm just worried. Is there no competent southerner to be appointed.

It's sad that no southern is occupying any security position under this government.

This is condemnable, I condemn it.

This noisemaker has resumed his duty. Any thread that hints on Buhari you will see all the veins in his neck flexing hard.

In the foolishness of his post he could not see the man is Kanuri and not from the core north plus he is impressively qualified for the position given.

My prayer for you this 2020 is, "that high blood pressure that is about to kill you because of anything Buhari, may it not succeed in Jesus Name".
