The Mahatma Ghandi Peace Foundation Nepal has said the strategic intervention of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) has nipped in the bud several issues that could have truncated the peace and unity of Nigeria.
The Foundation in a statement signed by its executive director, Dr Richard Oduma explained that there was need for the Service to be encouraged so it can do more especially at this period of uncertainties across the globe.
Consequently, the statement noted that the organisation acting on the recommendation of a civil society organisation, Save Nigeria Movement has presented an award of “Effective Crisis Management” to the Service based on its antecedents.
The Foundation explained that it had to take serious the recommendation of Save Nigeria Movement considering its pragmatic efforts of championing activities that guarantee peace and stability of the nation through various interventions.
“The organisation has noted the commitment of the department of state security service to ensuring the peace and unity of the nation under your leadership.
“This award is only symbolic and we hope to hold the service to further task to continue to do more”, the statement noted.
It would be recalled that the State Security Service has severally exposed plans of enemies of the country to cause disaffection and crisis. It has also played a leading role in sharing information and synergising the various security agencies in the country to enhance the peace and unity of the nation.
