Be Of Good Conduct For Public Peace And Order; DSS Tells Nigerians

1 min read

The Department of State Services has called on Nigerians and residents alike to be of good conduct for public peace and order ahead of the yuletide season. According to DSS spokesperson Dr. Peter Afunanya, the Service pledges to work with all stakeholders to maintain law and order throughout the country.

He also called on community, religious and political leaders “to preach peaceful coexistence, tolerance, and unity as well as enlighten their members on safety measures during and after the season. This is necessary because criminal elements may want to take advantage of the festivities in order to wreak havoc or harm unsuspecting members of the public.”

Similarly, the DSS also urged political actors, while carrying out their campaigns to play the game according to the rules of engagement and shun fake news, hate speech, violence, and acts inimical to national security.

The DSS also urged players in the socio-economic sector to avoid manipulative tendencies that could result in undue price hikes, artificial scarcity of products/goods, and situations that may lead to heightened tensions.

On the side of the media and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the Service urged them to be objective and patriotic in the discharge of their roles, as they should understand that the practice of their trade(s) could be more result-oriented in an atmosphere of peace.
