The Department of State Services (DSS) has been experiencing new changes lately and it has entered another phase during the week, with new postings and a series of reversals.
DSS spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, who was until recently, DSS deputy director, public relations, was transferred to Maiduguri, Borno State.
However, the posting has been put on hold, following insinuations that it was “punitive.”
According to Leadership, Ogar, who as spokesperson was responsible for defending the activities of the agency in the media is believed to be paying for some of her pronouncements, notably in the face-off with the Bring Back Our Girls movement and the DSS raids on the Lagos office of the All Progressives Congress (APC) last year.
She has already lost her promotion, following the nullification of the recent exercise. “Right now, she is just hanging around in Abuja, awaiting the next order,” a source said.
Also, about 45 new state directors who were promoted under Jonathan, have lost their new ranks as their promotions have been reversed.
Buhari refused to swear them in last Thursday, an indication that the promotion exercise had been annulled. Daura has also ordered the sack of fresh graduates who were recently employed after an eight-month training.
