Buhari Extends Mohammed Adamu’s Tenure As IGP For Three Months

1 Mins read

This is the position of the Federal Government after President Muhammadu Buhari approved the extension of the tenure of the police boss by three months.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, will continue his duty as the nation’s police chief despite the completion of his tenure.

The Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Dingyadi, announced this on Thursday while briefing reporters at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

He explained that the decision to extend the tenure of the police chief was to give the Federal Government ample time to select the appropriate person to succeed him.

While the minister announced the tenure of the IGP’s extension, the police chief decorated some newly-promoted officers elsewhere at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

The Principal Staff Officer (PSO) to the IGP, Idowu Owohunwa, and the Force Education Officer, Rabi Umar, were decorated with the rank of Commissioner of Police.

Also decorated were ACP Adegbite Tunde Titus, ACP Chinonyerem Welle, and DSP Aderoju Olagunju, amongst others.

Adamu, whose tenure as the Inspector-General of Police elapsed on Monday, held the position for two years.
