The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has congratulated the new Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) Adamu Mohammed on his appointment.
This was disclosed in a statement on Tuesday by the Director General of the NGF Secretariat, Asishana Okauru.
Governors expressed optimism that the new Acting IGP would bring professionalism and true leadership to policing in Nigeria.
The statement reads in part: “The Nigeria Governors’ Forum Secretariat believes that the appointment is well deserved, considering the personal accomplishments of the man.
“We can attest to his solid pedigree and rich experience. He is, arguably, the most qualified serving Police officer in this time to occupy the very sensitive office of the I-G.
“The NGF sincerely wishes that the new top cop will harness his experiences from previous offices, at home and abroad, with dexterity to curb crime, ensure peace in the entire country and once again propound the policing principles that will lead Nigerians to believe that police, is their friend.”
