A group of Northern youths under the aegis of North-east Youth Peace Development Empowerment Initiative, NEYPDEI, has exonerated the Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulrahaman Dambazau (reted.) over what happened in Abuja recently when an official of Department of State Services attached to him was allegedly caught on a video that went viral on social media, cleaning the minister’s shoe in public.
National President of the group, Alhaji Kyari Abubakar who made the statement in Lagos said: “I don’t think the minister has done anything wrong by allowing his Orderlies to clean his shoe during a public function in Abuja recently,” he said.
Abubakar stated that those who understood the responsibility of the job of Orderlies would know that what the officer did was part of his normal routine job.
“If you are enlisted into the job of a body guard, it is your duty to ensure that your boss dresses properly in public and when you notice something wrong in his dressing, you correct it immediately,” he said.
Abubakar noted that before the cleaning of the shoe, Dambazzau had attended a function where his pairs of shoe became dusty and when the official attached to him noticed it, he decided to clean it without the request of the Minister.
He frowned against online media and bloggers criticizing the Minister to properly understand the functions of the DSS official which was assigned to him (Dambazzau).
