Ohanaeze General Assembly Urges Buhari To Consider Igbo For IGP Position

Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to consider an Igbo man for the position of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

The group’s call was contained in a statement issued by its President-General, Onyeachonam Onuorah on Wednesday.

Onuorah lamented that the newly appointed service chiefs do not include an Igbo man.

“There is no Igbo man among the newly appointed Service Chiefs. Those who claim that the newly appointed Chief of Defense Staff Maj Gen Leo Irabor is an Igbo man should tell us if Irabor is an Igbo name,” the statement read in part.

“As the Inspector General of Police is due for retirement and fast getting ready to exit the police apex position, we call on the APC- led Federal Government to consider an Igbo man for the position of the Inspector General of Police.

“If there is no Igbo man or woman qualified for the job of the IGP, promote the Igbos next in line in the Police Force to fit in.”

Onuorah, however, hailed Buhari for replacing the erstwhile service chiefs.

He said the President did well by yielding to the long-time expectations of Nigerians for the change of the security architecture of the country.

The president-general charged the new appointees to justify the confidence reposed in them by taking up “this onerous task and daring challenges of insecurity in our country.”
