IGP Idris Visits President Buhari in Aso Rock
PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed doors with the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The IGP, who was reported to have clocked 35 years in service of the Nigeria Police Force on Jan. 3, was sighted dressed in his official uniform moving straight towards the president’s office.
Speculations going around is that he might likely have his tenure extended till after the February elections.
An aide very closed to the IGP, who preferred not to be named, told NAN that the IGP’s visit to the villa might not be unconnected with the issue of his extension.
“We are hopeful that the tenure of our IGP has been extended by Mr President because you can see him today in his official uniform even though the media said he was to retire yesterday (Thursday).
“But all will be known after this meeting,” the source said.
Idris, the nation’s 19th Inspector General of Police, was appointed by President Buhari on 21 March 2016
