NFF crisis: Dalung slams DSS over Glass House siege

| |

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Barrister Solomon Dalung has described the siege on the the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) headquarters by the operatives of the Department of Security Service, (DSS) on as impunity overstretched.

Speaking in similar manner on the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) programme ‘Tuesday Nite Live’ anchored by Cyril Stober, Dalung told the nation late Tuesday night, “I will remain a lawyer when I leave the office as minister so I owe it a duty to obey the court at all times, no matter how frivolous the order is.”

“The impunity prevents the anti graft agency from going after the corrupt people in the country. It also creates an enabling environment for corruption to thrive.

“And that is why i am calling on president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to mobilise his armour tank to wield out those in that abuse power while in office to provide sanctuary for corruption and until that is done the efforts of the honest people in government will be thwarted.”

“We have three arms of government; the legislature, executive and judiciary. The judiciary is the only competent arm that can vacate the court orders. And if government assisted in a way that breaks the law the citizens have no business obeying the law of the land made by the system.

“So, there is no arm of government this that will be involved in the disobedience of court order under President Muhammadu Buhari. So, what is happening at the NFF by the taking over of the Glass House by the officials of the DSS is impunity overstretched.”

Solomon Dalung said the impunity displayed by many people in power has come to an end.

Staffers of the Glass House quipped “at last, peace has returned to the Glass House, we can now work without fear and under duress. The last three weeks have been hell in office’. A top official of the NFF said.
