The Director General of the State Security Service, Mr. Yusuf Magaji Bichi has commended the President of the Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu for helping the Government in building peace and unity across the country.
Mr. Yusuf Magaji Bichi said this through the DSS Spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya who represented him at the grand finale of the 2020 Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge, a business development training and grant competition for Nigerian youths held in Abuja, recently.
According to him, “we shall continue to identify with and support groups like the Ugwumba Leadership Center who are using their programs to empower Nigerian youths as well as build peace and unity across the country. As an institution of the Government, our mandate is to prevent crimes in the country to ensure that we live in peace and in harmony with each other.”
He further said that development is only possible in an era of peace. He urged Nigerian youths in attendance at the Summit to remain law abiding and not allow themselves be used as tools for destruction of lives and properties, since violence does not achieve anything good for anybody.
He concluded by saying that “We are better off as a united country. We are better of as the pride of Africa. Therefore, as Nigerians, we should begin to spread the gospel of unity everywhere we go.”
