Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services, DSS, has said it will screen candidates running for public offices in Cross River State ahead of next year’s general election.

This was disclosed in a letter addressed to the State Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Mr. Alphonsus Ogar Eba, demanding that the candidates under the party standing for elections in next year’s polls should make themselves available for the screening exercise.

The letter dated 10th June 2022 with reference No. S. 275/1468 and signed by E. C. Okoye, for the Cross River State Director reads in part:

“In line with the requirements that all prospective candidates aspiring for elections into public offices undergo a mandatory security screening, I am directed to request you to inform all the party’s candidates from State House Of Assembly, House Of Representatives, Senate, and Governorship who were successful in the recently concluded primaries to report for the above screening exercise.”

The exercise which is scheduled to be held on the 22nd and 23rd of June, 2022, will happen at the premises of the DSS office in Calabar, according to the letter.
