In a statement released on Thursday by the service’s spokesman, Peter Afunanya, the DSS urged citizens to adhere to the protocols established for the nationwide events.

The statement read in part, “It is to be recalled that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Transition Council held a World Press Conference on May 18, 2023, during which he announced inauguration activities. The most important event is the inauguration of the President on May 29, 2023, in Abuja. In the majority of states, new governors will be inaugurated on the same day.


However, the Service is aware of plans by subversive elements to disrupt programmes in certain regions of the country. The objective is to undermine the efforts of security agencies to ensure peaceful ceremonies and to create panic and fear among the public.

On this basis, citizens, the media, and Civil Society Organisations are advised to strictly adhere to security and civil protocols throughout the events.

Advising Nigerians to avoid false information that could incite violence in the country, he urged unaccredited individuals to avoid the inauguration venues.

He added, “They are also urged to avoid fake news, false alarms, skewed reporting/narratives, and sensationalism that could likely incite division, tension, and violence before and after the exercises. This is due to the fact that these deplorable actions serve no purpose other than to undermine national unity and cohesion.

“Furthermore, all unauthorized (and unaccredited) individuals are warned to stay away from restricted and designated areas at event venues.

The Service reiterates its earlier request for the population to maintain order and peace. In the meantime, it will continue to work with sister agencies to ensure the success of inaugurations.”
