DASUKI Verses GUSAU
THE REAL STORY – President Goodluck Jonathan has appointed ex of many titles Gen Aliyu M. Gusau into his cabinet and duly cleared by the Nigerian Senate as Minister of Defence.
From diverse articles online – one will wonder how the Nigerian people would continue to take such measures in support or against.
According to our reliable sources in Nigeria, NSA Sambo Dasuki and Gen Aliyu Gusau (rtd) are in-laws.
Our sources highlighted that Aliyu Dasuki was a cousin to Dasuki the NSA. The name Aliyu Dasuki cannot be forgotten easily in Nigeria. He was the businessman behind Hold Trade Air which was involved in airlifting pilgrims and some other services in Nigeria. He died in 1992. He was survived by three children- two females, one male and his wife, Hajiya Jamila Dasuki.. When Aliyu Dasuki died, his widow, Jemila got married to Gusau.
The, then, Sultan, His Eminence Ibrahim Dasuki,, in his wisdom nominated one of his sons, Ahmed Dasuki, the immediate elder brother to Jamila Dasuki, and a cousin to the deceased himself in a close knit family, to be the administrator of late Aliyu Dasuki estate. he was said to have traversed various countries, after which proper inventories of the deceased’s properties were made. Ahmed Dasuki was said to have done a thorough job. Jemila, not content went to court and lost.
The job of Minister of Defence and NSA are quite distinct. The NSA in line with the National Security Agencies Act is the coordinator of all national security agencies in the country and also Chairman of Joint Intelligence board. The Minister of Defence concerns himself with policies in the Ministry. Did Gusau kowtow to any minister when he was NSA?
It will be recalled that as a former NSA many things the country is facing today started from Gusau’s term in office – http://www.vanguardngr.com/

It would be recalled that sometime ago, terrorists were having a field day in Abuja, Suleja, Kaduna, Kano and some parts of North Central Nigeria. It must be reiterated that terrorism is not a war that can be won in a day as it takes time to subdue. Terrorism is an affront on all Nigerians. There is call for the Nation’s security agencies to be encouraged to do more while observing rules of engagement. The state governments should be encouraged to embark on poverty alleviation programs by establishing small and medium scale enterprises in order to keep jobless youths off the streets.
Let all Nigerians not keep aloof; a little intelligence information will make a big difference.
We call on the Presidency to advise them to stick to their job specifications.
