The People’s Democratic Party have reacted to the appointment of Adamu Mohammed as the New Inspector General of Police.
In a statement on it’s official handle, the PDP urged for an immediate re-engineering of the Nigerian Police.
Read the statement below..
The PDP charges the acting Inspector General of Nigerian Police, Adamu Mohammed, to immediately commence the re-engineering of the Nigeria Police to restore professionalism and adherence to rules of engagement in the Force.
The party berates the outgoing IGP Ibrahim Idris, for a shameful and partisan tenure, which destroyed professionalism in the Nigerian Police & compromised the lives & security of Nigerians, adding that he must be held accountable for all the atrocities he committed while in office.
Ibrahim Idris will be remembered as the only IGP in our political history, who surrendered the responsibilities of his exalted office to the whims and caprices of politicians who share courtesies with the Buhari Presidency.
Former IGP, Ibrahim Idris defied the need to secure troubled areas and watched carelessly while an integral part of our nation was engulfed in bloody clashes.
Idris will also be remembered as that Nigerian Police Officer, who had a penchant for framing innocent Nigerians with ridiculous allegations. Throughout his inglorious tenure, he functioned as the commander of the militant wing of the APC, just to retain his office.
The PDP therefore urges the new Police boss to learn a lesson from the shameful end of Idris as IGP by immediately setting up the process of re-orientating & insulating the Force from partisan politics, while subjecting it to the tenets of democracy &the rule of law.
The PDP urges the Nigerian Police chief to avoid the pitfalls of the last IGP, who has gone down in history as the most corrupt, devious and reckless police officer to hold the post of the IGP in Nigeria.
The party further advices the new police boss to remove all templates of election rigging contained in the hand-over note that will be presented to him by Idris Ibrahim.
The new IGP must also urgently take steps to address the bastardization of promotion in the Nigerian Police under the last IGP, where officers due for promotion were denied and only those endorsed by a cabal or who have enough money to buy their way through were promoted.
