Following the widespread condemnation of the Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulrahaman Dambazau (retd) for allowing his orderly shine his shoes during a public event, a group of Northern youths- under the aegis of North-east Youth Peace Development Empowerment Initiative- have supported his action.
According to the National President of the group, Alhaji Kyari Abubakar, the Department of State Services officer was simply carrying out his job description.
In a statement released in Lagos on Monday, Abubakar said: “I don’t think the minister has done anything wrong by allowing his Orderlies to clean his shoe during a public function in Abuja recently.”
Abubakar revealed that Dambazzau had earlier attended a function that made his shoes get dusty and when the official attached to him noticed it, he decided to clean it without the request of the Minister.
The group said those who understood the responsibility of the job of Orderlies ought to know that the officer didn’t do anything strange.
“If you are enlisted into the job of a body guard, it is your duty to ensure that your boss dresses properly in public and when you notice something wrong in his dressing, you correct it immediately.”
