POLICE COUNCIL CONFIRMS USMAN ALKALI AS NIGERIA’S IGP
The Police Council has confirmed Usman Alkali Baba as the Inspector General of Police, two months after President Muhammadu Buhari approved his appointment.
Usman Alkali was confirmed on Friday during a meeting of the council in Abuja presided over by President Buhari.
The Minister of Police Affairs Maigari Dingyadi who confirmed the development urged the IGP to justify the confidence entrusted to him by reducing the rising menace of insecurity ravaging the nation.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo physically attended the meeting which was billed to take place last week but postponed to honour the late Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru and ten other military officers who died in a plane crash on May 21.
Others who physically attended the council meeting include the Chief of staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; National Security Adviser, Babagana Munguno; Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Musiliu Smith; Ministers of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola; Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi.
