A pro Atiku Abubakar Ex-militant leader, Eshanekpe Israel, a.k.a Akpodoro, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing Abubakar Adamu as the new inspector general of police.
The appointment of IGP Adamu, Akpodoro said in a statement issued to newsmen at the wake of an elaborate meeting of critical stakeholders in the Niger Delta Wednesday, didn’t come to him as a surprise noting that the police boss deserves the appointment on account of his outstanding performance and professionalism he has exuded in his career over the years.
Akpodoro, who doubles as the president of the National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators, NCNDE-A stated that this singular appointment will go a long way to pacify the people of Nigeria in a seeming assurance that all will be well in terms of internal security.
He stated further that unlike what the nation was served under the former IGP, Ibrahim Idris, Mr. Adamu, he noted will serve the nation much better without the rascality of the past.
Akpodoro commended the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for putting the police institution on the edge by ensuring that Mr. Idris’ tenure was not extended as wished by President Buhari who he noted half-heartedly appointed a new IGP to serve the nation but was quick to commend the president’s choice of Mr. Adamu.
As an Ex-militant leader who has been on the corridors of the nation’s security establishment, Akpodoro stated that he had known Mr. Adamu as a quintessential gentleman with high moral discipline and professional excellence which he said were needed by the head of the police to better the security situation in the country.
He urged the IGP to see his appointment as a call to serve the nation judiciously without preference for any person or group of persons adding that he has the forthcoming general elections to show to Nigerians that he is a thoroughbred police officer as the nation expects superlative performance from him.
Additionally, the Urhobo – born former warrior who is the National Coordinator of the Urhobo Youth Forum for Change, UYFC hailed the new IGP for the appointment of Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP Franc Mba, as the Force Public Relations, FPRO. He noted that Mr. Adamu has opened a new vista in the nation’s police force by “ending a regime of lackadaisical approach and gross ineptitude in the force.”
He noted that Mba is a communication expert who knows his onions and can hold his own anywhere in the world stressing that the era of an image maker “stammering” in the middle of speech making was gone with Mr Idris
