The presidency has reacted to agitations and calls from a section of the country for President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint the next Inspector-General of Police (IGP) from the southeast.

Shehu said President Buhari will not be driven by ethnic sentiments or affiliations in his choice of the next police chief, in line with what he did while picking the new service chiefs.

Rather, he said the president will only appoint someone who will ensure the security of Nigerians better than what has been recorded.

He revealed:

“I haven’t spoken with the President but if I read his mind correctly, the president would rather have an Inspector General of Police who would make you and I safer, who would protect lives and property than one who is more pronounced by his tribal marks.”

Shehu added that Buhari will make the appointment upon his return from his home town, Daura in Katsina state.

Meanwhile, Olusegun Obasanjo, a former Nigerian president, said the worsening insecurity in the country was responsible for the low patronage from foreign investors.

The former president made this disclosure on Sunday, January 31, during a virtual interview with academic and historian, Toyin Falola.

Obasanjo said investors are being chased away and discouraged because of rising atrocities of dreaded militant group Boko Haram and banditry in the north.

He also stated that Nigeria, unlike many other countries in Africa, has chances “but squandered those opportunities” due to poor leadership and greed in the current government.
