Investigators at the State Security Service (SSS) are set to grill former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Gha’ali Umar Na’aba, for calling on all “Nigerians of conscience” to join the NCFront, a pressure group, in rescuing and saving Nigeria from “the anarchy and fear of an impending doom”.
Alhaji Na’aba, had also appealed to Nigerians to join forces with them in creating a new Nigeria that works for all.
Na’aba, is the co-Chair of NCFront and spoke during a global press conference, organized by the conveners of NCFront, last Monday.
He said the way governance is conducted in the country currently suggests a high degree of irresponsibility at all levels.
He had said at the press conference: “For the avoidance of doubt, our only interest lies in creating inclusive democratic governance which is a sin qua none towards the provision of a decent living condition for the people and also the facilitation of prosperity for every Nigerian citizen.
“It is our desire to rescue our fellow citizens from the viper-like grip of poverty, while creating jobs for our teeming youths and masses, majority of who are roaming the streets of our country rudderlessly and hopelessly as we speak”.
However, the SSS forwarded a short telephone message to the Head Public Affairs Bureau in NCFront, Dr. Tanko Yunusa, according to PRNigeria, stating: “Please be notified that the DSS on Friday sent an invitation to NCFront Co-Chair and Former Speaker of Nigeria, Rt Hon Ghali Umar Na’aba after his very profound interview on Channels Television on Thursday in regard to the NCFront agenda to bring about a new Nigeria that works for all.”
Yunusa has however explained that Na’aba has decided to honour the SSS, and therefore shall be visiting the DSS headquarters in Abuja on Monday at 12noon.
He advised: “All NCFront Organs, Structures and Allies nationwide are, by this notice, put on the alert as eternal vigilance is the price of liberty”.
