‘DSS Director-General not our member,’ APC denies PDP’s claims

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had alleged that Daura was a card-carrying member of the ruling party hence his appointment as DSS DG could not stand.

Director General of the Department of State Service (DSS), Lawal Daura

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied reports that the Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS), Lawal Daura is a member of the party.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had alleged that Daura was a card-carrying member of the ruling party hence his appointment as DSS DG could not stand.

The APC’s denial was contained in a statement released by National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed who called on the PDP to prove its claims.

The statement reads in part:

“After all, it is trite that he who alleges must prove. In the absence of that, the PDP must call another press conference to publicly apologize to all Nigerians for engaging in barefaced lies.”

“We know that the psyche of the PDP has been badly affected by its loss of power at the centre. Even the party itself has admitted that much. That situation has now been compounded by the fact that the party is broke.”

“It is therefore not a surprise that it is no longer able to think straight. The reality of its new situation is just beginning to dawn on it but we warned the PDP early on that being in opposition is not a walk in the park. We warned that while the party was used to eating its bread with butter on both sides, it will now be lucky to even have bread to eat.”
