INAUGURATION: DSS warns against unruly conducts,Non-adherence to protocols …. urges media to shun fake news,skewed reportage

The Department of State Security Service DSS has warned Nigerian residents against unruly behaviours and non-adherence to protocols during inauguration activities,the service also advise those who are planing to disrupt inauguration activities holding across Nigeria on the 29th May ,2923 to have a rethink or face the consequences.
It would be recalled that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Transition Council (PTC) on 18th May, 2023 held a World Press Conference during which he announced activities for the Presidential inauguration. The major highlight of the activities is the swearing-in of the President on 29th May, 2023 in Abuja. On the same date, new Governors will also be inaugurated in most of the States.
The Service, however said it has uncovered plans by subversive elements to disrupt the programmes in parts of the country.
DSS said “the aim is to undermine security agencies’ efforts at ensuring peaceful ceremonies as well as creating panic and fear among members of the public.
The service therefore urged citizens, the media and Civil Society Organisations to adhere strictly to security and civil protocols during the events.
DSS further urged media to shun fake news, false alarms, skewed reportage/narratives and sensationalism that may likely inflame division, tension and violence prior to and after the exercises.
“This is more so that such undesirable acts will serve no purpose other than destroying national unity and cohesion. Additionally, all unauthorised (and unaccredited) persons are warned to stay away from restricted and certain designated areas at the event venues”DSS added.
The Service therefore reiterated its earlier call for the populace to remain calm and law abiding, assured that it will continue to sustain collaboration with sister agencies to ensure successful inaugurations.
