Why Buhari confirms Adamu as Inspector General of Police  


The Police Council has confirmed the appointment of Mr. Mohammed Adamu as the Inspector General of Police.

The council is headed by President Muhammadu Buhari.

It would be recalled that Adamu was appointed by the president on January 15 after the retirement of Ibrahim Idris.

The confirmation was announced by the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Thursday when he spoke with State House correspondents shortly after the meeting of the council at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

His words:  “The Council looked at the records of the Acting Inspector-General of Police, who has been on the saddle now since January 15, 2019.

“A cross section of members of council was very clear that given his passion and commitment, professionalism and his extensive experience locally and internationally, his acting inspector-general of police was approved.

“And, it has been confirmed (to) permanent appointment by the Police Council in accordance with the provision of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.’’

Fayemi also disclosed that members of the council spoke well of Adamu.

He said they recognised the challenges Adamu would have to cope with and promised to give him the needed support.

“We will have to do a little more because many of these challenges are socio-economic in nature and need to look at the sociological underpinning of crime.

“It is not just being tough on crime but also being tough on causes of crime by addressing these causes most fundamentally.

“Council acknowledged that we will give the IGP the support that he deserves. Already, at the state level, many of you are aware that state governors are supporting the police in many ways and we are not tired of doing that,’’ he added.
