The senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has congratulated the newly appointed Director-General of Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi.

President Muhammadu Buhari replaced Matthew Seiyefa with Bichi on Thursday.

But the appointment of Bichi, a northerner, did not go down well with a group of southern leaders who accused the President of dividing Nigeria more than any other leader in the nation’s history.

Seiyefa, a southerner, was appointed in acting capacity after Lawal Daura was dismissed for ordering the laying of a siege to the National Assembly.

And Sani, while congratulating the new DSS boss, chose not to talk about his ethnicity.

Instead, the lawmaker set a seven-point agenda for the DSS DG to think about.

”Congrats to Yusuf Magaji Bichi; 7 Agenda for the New DSS Boss; Professionalism, Respect for rule of law & Obey Court orders, End kidnappings & rescue abductees, Avoid partisanship, asphyxiate & annihilate terror groups, Improve welfare of operatives, Use gloves when shaking politicians,” Sani wrote on his Twitter handle on Friday morning.
