Group tells Buhari to extend tenure of Police IG Idris

The Police Community Relations Committee has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to extend the tenure of office of the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris.

Idris, who has already clocked 35 years in service, would also attain the mandatory retirement age of 60 on January 15.

The Deputy National Chairman of PCRC, Alhaji Sanusi Ajiya, made the call on Monday in Abuja after a peaceful march to the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in Abuja.

He was represented by Professor Nick Eze, National Vice chairman of PCRC.

He said that Idris had recorded unprecedented achievements in the area of security, adding that tenure extension of any official was the prerogative of the president.

“We appeal to President Buhari in the interest of Nigerians to extend his tenure of office, we need him at this critical time in the country,“ he said.

Ajiya said that those campaigning for the removal of the IG were enemies of progress, adding that extension would allow him to do more for the country.

He said that under the leadership of Idris, kidnapping, armed robbery, cattle rustling among other crimes have been checked.

He said that it was on record that this extension was not the first time as other police chiefs have enjoyed the same benefits.
