New IGP: Presidency Will Not Be Driven By Sentiments




The presidency has spoken on calls from a section of the country for President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint the next Inspector-General of Police (IGP) from the southeast.

Speaking with journalists on Monday, February 1, Garba Shehu, a Presidential Media aide, revealed the calibre of person the president will choose to succeed Mohammad Adamu.

Shehu said President Buhari will not be driven by ethnic sentiments or affiliations in his choice of the next police.

Rather, he said the president will only appoint someone who will ensure the security of Nigerians better than what has been recorded.

The presidency said President will choose a new IGP who will make Nigeria safer.

He revealed: “I haven’t spoken with the President but if I read his mind correctly, the president would rather have an Inspector General of Police who would make you and I safer, who would protect lives and property than one who is more pronounced by his tribal marks.”

Shehu added that Buhari will make the appointment upon his return from his home town, Daura in Katsina Sstate.
