Reactions As Buhari Extends Retired Mohammed Adamu, Inspector General Of Police Tenure By Three Months.
President Muhammad Buhari has extended the Inspector General of police tenure by three months. Mohammed Adamu who is set to have retired from the Nigeria police by 1st of February had his office extended for three months.
However, this has caused reactions from Nigerians as eye browns are raised. The big question Nigerians are asking is that, are there no other officers of the Nigerian police that are good enough to assume that office? Was the president not aware that Adamu was due by 1st of February? Does the president who claims he fights corruption not aware of the legal implications of his action?
This particular act by the president only confirms how his administration had always been reactive instead of been proactive. It’s indeed shameful that such action was taken by the president who claims to fight corruption and injustice.
Adamu has served the Nigerian police for 35 years and was due for retirement on the 1st of February. But the president decided to extend his office by three months; constitutional lawyers have argued that in the face of the law, Nigeria has no Inspector general of police, that Adamu’s instructions should be neglected and discarded because he does not have the backing of the constitution.
