The Presidency on Monday revealed that no date has been fixed for the appointment of a new Inspector-General of Police.
Candidreporters.com earlier reported that IGP, Mohammed Adamu, was expected to leave office on Monday, having attained the statutory retirement age.
However, Adamu was in office till past 6pm on Monday and attended to a large number of visitors.
Findings indicate that he did not hand over to any senior officer as expected.
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu has said he was not aware of the imminent announcement of a new police chief.
His words: “The President returns to Abuja (from Katsina) on Tuesday. He should be on his desk by Wednesday. I don’t know when he will do this. One thing I can assure you is that in places sensitive like that, there is no vacuum that will subsist, so therefore, the system will take care of itself.”
“The President will rather have an Inspector-General of Police who will make you and I safer, protect life and property than one who is more pronounced by his tribal marks,” he noted.
