A new chief security officer (CSO) was appointed for the president-elect as part of security arrangement ahead of his swearing in on May 29.
An operative of the Department of Security Service (DSS), Abdulrahman Dauda Mani is the new security chief of the president-elect.
Mani’s appointment was announced by the director general of the DSS Ita Ekpenyong last week when he paid a courtesy call to Buhari.
Mani’s appointment also came with accelerated promotion by the secret service.
Mani was deployed by the DSS as a security detail to Buhari in 2011 weeks before he launched his campaign that year.
Daily Trust learned that security has been beefed up around the president-elect a day after he was presented with a certificate of return by INEC.
