Eventful In Partnership with FirstBankThe Former Nation Security Adviser (NSA) Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd) has been picked again by The operatives of Department of State Service (DSS) to their office in Abuja.
This occurred after some of his aides during his reign under the administration of the immediate past president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan were arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly involving in the ongoing investigation of a $2 billion weapons contract scandal attached to Dasuki.
Dasuki, who has been under pressure from law enforcement authorities for allegedly playing a role in the theft accusation, recently denied ever receiving any formal or informal invitation to appear before an Investigative Panel on the Procurement of hardware and munitions in the armed forces.
While responding to a statement from the Presidency he said he was never been invited formally or informally to appear before the panel.
He added that: “For the record I am proud to serve my nation with the best of intention and ensuring the recovery of more than 22 local government councils from Boko Haram terrorists.
“Because of the pride on how we tackled terrorism and defeated Boko Haram terrorists through our gallant troops and partners in the twilight of the previous administration, that is the reason I have insisted on open and public trial of my stewardship rather than secret trial in the court as being canvassed by my prosecutors.
“I wish Nigerians will go back and reflect on what we did with even little or no supports from some countries, we performed miracles before the emergence of this administration. I even though the committee was to investigate procurement from 2007 to 2015. Yet only my name is always being mentioned even when some of the issues were before I came into the government.
“I leave Nigerian to judge”Dasuki concluded.
