Information available to us indicated that the failed attempt by the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party to instigate Nigerians against President Muhammadu Buhari using the debunked phone tapping scandal was aimed at portraying the government as a repressive and autocratic regime ahead of this year’s World Press Freedom Day which comes up on May 3.
According to our intelligence, the move was part of the grand plan by the PDP and the fifth columnists within the Buhari’s government to start the demonization campaign against his government which will be celebrating two years in office on May 29.
For Example, in their accusation, they claimed that the Department of State Service as an agency under the Ministry of Interior has started the recording and saving of phone conversations among Nigerians in
its system as well as monitoring and censoring of all Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp chats and comments in the country.
We must state that the PDP and the promoters of the false report were not smart enough as the DSS as one of the three intelligence organisations that were created out of the old National Security Organization in 1986 is not under the Ministry of Interior but under the Office of the National Security Adviser to the President. In other words, it is under the Presidency and not the Ministry of Interior as
Hence, in our analysis, the latest claim is a forerunner to the planned misinformation and campaign of calumny which they have designed against President Buhari but feared the security operatives may come after them for committing a felony against the state.
Therefore, we are calling on Nigerians to be wary of plans by PDP and the fifth columnists to deceive them ahead of Mr President’s two years anniversary in office on May 29.
