DSS Pledges to Make Nigeria Safe for Business
By Aduragbemi Omiyale
The Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Mr Yusuf Magaji Bichi, has assured companies that it would do its best possible to ensure that Nigeria was safe for business.
Mr Bichi gave this assurance during the groundbreaking of a state-of-the-art museum complex at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja donated by Lubrik Construction Company and Craneburg Construction.
The project, which is expected to be completed in 16 months and will meet all international standards, is being jointly carried out by the firms as part of their Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSRs).
Present at the ceremony held on Thursday, July 15, 2021, were senior officials of the DSS and directors of both construction companies.
Speaking at the event, Mr Bichi thanked the managements of Lubrik Construction and Craneburg Construction for the gesture and assured them of the agency’s commitment to making Nigeria safe for companies to do their business without any form of intimidation.
The Chairman of Lubrik Construction Company, Mr Nasiru Haladu Danu, who is also on the board of Craneburg Construction, said the project would be fully funded by both construction companies.
He urged private organisations to encourage the security agencies by carrying out projects that would help and motivate them.
Recall that the same companies carried out a similar project for the Nigerian Army by constructing a world-class club house at the Guards Polo Club, Abuja which is currently at its 80 per cent completion stage.
