Why Dogara promises to reduce SSS powers


Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara on Wednesday said the invasion of houses of judges by operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) was unconstitutional.

Dogara said this during the inauguration of a committee charged with investigating the clampdown.

The Speaker expressed concerns over the activities of the SSS since the beginning of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
He charged the committee to “make relevant findings of fact that will enable the National Assembly initiate the necessary amendments to the National Security Agencies Act.”

Dogara said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was already in charge of corruption charges.

“It is untidy, it seems, to have multiple agencies exercising similar functions. The EFCC already handles issues of corruption and economic crimes in Nigeria,” Dogara said.

“Should the State Security Service also be charged with the same functions?”

He added, “It is in this regard that I enjoin this Committee to make relevant findings of fact that will enable the National Assembly initiate the necessary amendments to the National Security Agencies Act —and even the Constitution where necessary— to ensure conformity with the constitutional design and framework that envisage that federal legislative power should be domiciled in the National Assembly and not shared with the executive in the manner provided under the Act.”
