The Federal Government has reacted to agitations and calls from a section of the country for Nigeria Leader, President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint the next Inspector-General of Police (IGP) from the southeast.
Garba Shehu, a presidential media aide, in a conversation with journalists on Monday, February 1, revealed the caliber of person the president will choose to succeed the current IG Mohammad Adamu.
The presidential media aide said President Muhammadu Buhari will not be driven by ethnic sentiments or affiliations in his choice of the next police chief, in line with what he did while picking the new service chiefs.
Garba said the president will rather appoint someone who will ensure the security of Nigerians better than what has been recorded.
“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.”
The presidential media aide also added that President Buhari will make the appointment upon his return from his hometown, Daura in Katsina state.
Meanwhile, the former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, said the worsening insecurity in the country was responsible for the low patronage from foreign investors.
The former president made this disclosure on Sunday, January 31, during a virtual interview with academic and historian, Toyin Falola.
The former Nigerian president said investors are being chased away and discouraged because of the rising atrocities of the dreaded militant group Boko Haram and banditry in the north.
Olusegun Obasanjo also stated that Nigeria, unlike many other countries in Africa, has chances “but squandered those opportunities” due to poor leadership and greed in the current government.
