Buhari Speaks On Expiration Of IGP Idris Tenure

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally broken silence over the expired tenure of the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, adding that he will take action on him soon.

The President who spoke during a recorded interview aired on Arise TV was reacting to growing demands for the IG, who has reached the retirement age of 60, to step aside.

Naija News reports that there have been speculations that the President is considering extending his tenure till after the elections.

When asked his next line of action, Buhari burst into laughter, mocking those who had threatened to take action against him if he refused to sack Idris.

He, however, said he was not afraid of the IG and would take a decision soon.

The President said, “I don’t think I am afraid of him. And I don’t think I have asked him to mount roadblocks in place such that I’ll lose revenue (if he goes). But I’ll take action.”

Buhari, however, said removing service chiefs or the IG during a time of insecurity is a sensitive matter.
