Fair use rationale for Image:Nigeria coa.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Nigeria coa.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 16:27, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

why is sss not recruiting online is very bad[edit]

please i want to use this opprtunity to inform the state security service that despit the fact that they are trying their best in this country but is very unfortunate that their not recruiting online please find solution to this thanks.

WHY IS THE SSS NOT RECRUITING STAFF ONLINE.

It very sad to note that The Nigerian SSS does not recruite its staff online despite the fact that we have both the human and technological resources.

Recruitment applications should be made public and done online for our youths to be able to have eaqual oppurtunities at the recruitment exercise.

I HAVE A JOB WITH A FEDERAL MEDICAL CENTRE AS A MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENTIST, BUT MY PASSION TO SEE OUR NATIONAL SECURITY BE SOMETHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT COME 2020 IS BEYOND MERE GETTING A JOB. CAN I STILL WORK FOR SSS UNDER COVER AND STILL KEEP MY JOB? WE NEED TO OVERHAUL THE SECURITY SYSTEM OF THIS NATION AT ALL COST. WE ARE NOT TERRORISTS.

I will love to speak with the Director General of the State Security Service as soon as possible. My name is withheld for now. I'm sorry for my choice of words. You can reach me on this number. 07036077761

Security situation[edit]

Good morning Marilyn Ogar,

I appreciate what your office and other security agencies are currently doing in the country to checkmate the ugly security challenges the nation is currently facing. Honestly you guys need more than intelligence to combat this ugly trend, and so May the grace and wisdom of God be with you guys.

Madam, I wish to call security attention to all the people that appear in our eyes as beggars but deep within me considering the mood of the nation are potential standpoints for violence and mayhem. particularly, there is a man that stays almost opposite the Fed. Min. of Tourism, Culture and National Orientation, just a little down after the Foreign Affairs Ministry. Such kind of people could be used as spies but they appear as beggars but releasing electronic information to their principals, i was observing him, he sits up, lies down, sits up and lies down with face down. Pls check it and other strategic areas especially in FCT. Also, these boys that go about carrying dirty bags and begging for alms in traffic especially in FCT, they pose serious security checks, they could be carrying bombs but appear to be begging for alms. Please look professionally into these areas and take necessary steps to stamp out violence in our nation.

God be with you, we are praying for you guys, God will surely frustrate their plans to be spilling innocent blood on account of parochial and selfish pursuits.

thank you.

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: confirmed already executed move to State Security Service (Nigeria), State Security Service being now a dab page. Favonian (talk) 18:29, 20 March 2012 (UTC)


Department of State ServicesState Security Service – The article is about the Nigerian internal security/intelligence agency. The proper name recognized by the law establishing the agency and delineating it's functions -National Security Agencies Act of 1986 (Decree 19) and the the SSS Instrument I of 1999- recognizes only the name "State Security Service". The name, "Department of State Services" is a cover name used by operatives of the agency but which cannot be used to refer to the agency in legal terms. DIREKTOR should have used a disambiguation page instead of moving the page to another name, he hasn't done any of this to advance knowledge but only selfishly to advance his "Yugoslavia" interests. Lamodele (talk) 15:22, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Support moveback - Lamodele, in a case like this where a controversial move has been performed without discussion (which is what it appears, correct me if I'm wrong) you don't have to undertake a RM, but could have reverted to status quo. Anyway, support, although State Security Service (Nigeria) may be better as most GBhits are to the old East German State Security Service, a few more to Georgia and other places. Small caps state security service doesn't need to redirect anywhere. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:45, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
  • rename to State Security Service (Nigeria) , "State Security Service" is overly ambiguous, so should be a disambiguation page per IIO. 70.49.126.147 (talk) 05:12, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Can't agree that it will be helpful for readers looking for the article or any variant thereof. The title "state" can, and usually does apply to any state. If anything, "State security service" should redirect to Security Service. --Ohconfucius ¡digame! 08:55, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Support move to State Security Service. If you google State Security Service -wikipedia the top result is a private company using this URL. But the next three results are for the Nigerian agency. State Security Service is currently a redirect to a Yugoslavian agency, but no result on the first page is Yugoslavia related. Kauffner (talk) 13:17, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep it at State Security Service (Nigeria). I cannot belive that no other country uses or has used the title State Security Service, which should be a dabpage. Peterkingiron (talk) 13:21, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
