The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied involvement in the reinstatement of Mr Abdulrasheed Maina into the Federal Civil Service. DSS in a statement on Monday said it is not investigating Maina nor handling any matter connected him and that there was no correspondence between the DSS and the Head of Service with respect to Maina.
The service in the statement also explained that Maina is a civil servant and if any disciplinary action needs to be taken against him, it is the responsibility of the Civil service, not the DSS. President Buhari on Monday ordered the immediate dismissal Maina from the Federal Civil Service calling for a probe of his reinstatement. The office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF) in swift response denied approving the reinstatement of Maina into the Federal Civil Service.
