DSS invites former speaker Na’aba over ‘new Nigeria’ plan

Ghali Na’abba

The Department of State Services (DSS) has invited a former speaker of the House of Representatives Ghali Na’aba for questioning.

Mr Na’aba recently formed a new political movement called NCFront alongside a former presidential candidate and founder of the Lagos Business School, Prof. Pat Utomi.

Na’aba, according to a statement on Saturday by the group’s spokesman Yunusa Tanko, was invited on Friday and is to honour the invitation on Monday.

The invitation for questioning is believed to be based on his interview on Channels Television on Thursday regarding the agenda to bring about “a new Nigeria”.

Tanko’s statement reads, “Distinguished Compatriots! Please be notified that the DSS on Friday sent an invitation to NCFront Co-Chair and former Speaker of (the House of Representatives) Nigeria, Rt Hon. Ghali Umar Na’aba after his very profound interview on Channels Television on Thursday in regard to the agenda of the NCFront to bring about a new Nigeria.

“However, our leader, Ghali Umar Na’aba has decided to honour the DSS invitation and therefore shall be visiting the DSS Headquarters in Abuja on Monday at 12noon.

“All NCFront Organs, Structures and Allies nationwide are, by this notice, put on the alert as ‘eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.'”
