Calls for the Removal of Force PRO Jimoh
A Non Governmental Organisation- Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has on Tuesday, described the exit of the immediate past Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Ibrahim Kpodum Idris from the force, as good riddance to bad rubbish.
This is just as it noted, that the exist is perhaps the finest opportunity for the emerging hierarchy of the Nigerian Policing Institution to have a rebirth and change the ‘tragic comedy, that policing became under the last leadership which lasted three years from 2015 to January 15th 2019.
HURIWA, in a statement by the National Coordinator, Emmanuel onwubiko, asked the incoming IGP to sack the spokesman of Force headquarters Mr. Jimoh, ‘the rapidly promoted Assistant commissioner of police, picked by Idris Kpodum Ibrahim, for bringing public odium to the media and public image of the Nigeria Police force.
“The Force PRO under the past IGP is everything but professional because that office elevated double, speak falsehood to a religion in the Nigeria Police force”, it said. “Alhaji Ibrahim Kpodum Idriss is so far the worst Inspector General of police in Nigeria’s recorded history. He elevated executive rascality to it’s stinking peak”.
The group, also charged the new acting Inspector General of police Alhaji Abubakar Adamu, to hit the ground running by first and foremost changing the public relations dynamics of the Nigerian policing institution from the global notoriety it garnered for itself as a lying policing force to become a people’s friendly police that will focus on comprehensively enforcing the laws effectively, efficiently and professionally in absolute loyalty to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria of 1999 (as amended) and to change the face of the police from a highly compromised agency that carries out politically motivated hatchet jobs for the highest bidders and the political party in power and become a truly Nigeria Police Force that will serve Nigerians creditably.
According to Onwubiko, “The police in Nigeria has become the most untrustworthy institution in Nigeria and swims in the illegality of bribery and corruption. NPF now stinks of impunity and crass indiscipline”.
HURIWA further said: “We wish to recommend to the new IGP to adopt a 1 point agenda which will revolve around turning the currently corrupt and politically compromised Nigeria Police to a Professionally effective and efficient Policing institution that will be administered in absolute compliance with the Rule of law and in total obedience to the Nigerian Constitution and all relevant law enforcement statutes”.
HURIWA, however condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s aversion for appointment of non Moslems into strategic internal security posts just as it stated, that the concentration of all internal security appointments in the hands of Northern Moslems is unconstitutional and a shameful worship of the goddess of nepotism and favouritism by President Muhammadu Buhari.
