Opposition parties have resolved to begin nationwide protests from January 15 over continuous stay of retired police.
The IGP’s office has been vacant since Idris retirement after serving for 35 years and has ceased to be policeman since January 3 after his long years in service.
This means that the IGP is constitutionally barred from being retained or reappointed as an Inspector general of police as he is no longer a serving police officer.
The affiliation has said that the nation’s constitution did not make provision for a former police officer to be an IGP.
The affiliation of United Political Parties have resolved to begin nationwide protest from January 15th inother for President Buhari to appoint a new inspector General of police.
A spokesman said that his continued stay in office is illegal and an act of impersonation as there is no legal evidence or documentation backing up his stay as Inspector General.
The uncertainty in the leadership of the police in such auspicious moment emboldens persons with sinister motives and demoralizes senior officers of the force as a result of this unlawful and abrupt halt to their career progression.
