Abdulrahman, a retired senior SSS official, in an exclusive interview with Premium Times, said he left the DSS because of the scale of corruption and abuse in the agency.

In one of earlier meetings he suggested that we should request for one billion to start work. Where will Buhari see one billion to give us?” Abdulrahman also accused Daura of producing fake reports about his predecessor, Ita Ekpenyong. “When he (Daura) was appointed he kept putting pressure on me and Maikano, the current AO (admin officer) at the presidential villa to come and work with him as SA. He assured me that what I will get under him, I cannot get even as a minister.
“He said he wants the two of us to stabilise the service for him. Daura was receiving money from everyone including the president’s enemies.” Mr Abdulrahman said when they resumed, they always closed late at work, often at about 2am. “What are we doing was mostly: receiving Ghana must go filled with cash brought by enemies of government to him. The rate of corruption on that fourth floor was too much and the president doesn’t deserve this. He will go and get information on plans for (Senate president) Bukola (Saraki) and then leak it to him.”
