The new DG of the DSS, Yusuf Magaji Bichi, admitted that he met with President Muhamamdu Buhari for the first time yesterday, as the President asked him if they have ever met before.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday in Abuja met, for the first time, with the newly appointed Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Magaji Bichi, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
 
It was reported that, when Bichi was ushered into the president’s office by protocol officials, he was asked by the president if they had met before.
 
The new DG, however, 'confessed’ that he was seeing President Buhari face-to-face for the first time in his life. It was reported that the meeting of the president and the DSS boss went into a closed-door session.
 
President Buhari on Sept. 13 appointed Bichi, as new Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS).
 
Bichi, who replaced Lawal Daura, the former DG of the DSS, is a core Secret Service operative, said Malam Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the president on media.

Pray, who is in charge of Affairs in this Country, the President or some faceless Northerners. If the President of the Country does not know who his Chief Spy is, then we are in trouble. I know President Buhari's remark as to who the new DG DSS was, should be a deliberate ploy to deceive ignorant Nigerians that he did not influence the Appointment. I have a feeling the President is scared of his position, if not he would have attempted bringing in some retired personnel of the Armed Forces to run lhe Armed Services as he is now doing in the Customs and the DSS. I have a feeling the President is being held hostage by some powerful elements, else he would not have gone down this low.
