President Buhari to Appoint New Police IG
President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to appoint a new Inspector General of Police (IGP) as current IGP, Solomon Arase is set to bow out of office on Tuesday.
Arase is the 18th indigenous IGP and was appointed in April last year by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to The Nation, officers and men of the Force are anxiously awaiting President Buhari’s choice of successor.
“The IG’s tenure will end today and we don’t know who the next IG will be as I speak," Police spokesperson Olabisi Kolawole said. “Even the IGP does not know but maybe he will know later today (yesterday) or tomorrow (today) but as we speak now, we are all in the dark. I am sure we will know tomorrow and will communicate it to you.”
