Buhari begins search for Arase's replacement

16 June 2016, 21:38

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari is currently shopping for a replacement for the Inspector- General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, reports NewsDay

Arase is expected to bow out of service next week.

By virtue of his date of birth (June 21, 1956), Arase, who is the 18th indigenous IGP, will be 60 years on Tuesday, June 21; the mandatory age of retirement from service.

Arase, who was appointed on April 21, 2015, would have put in 35 years in the Police by December 1.

Already, those jostling for Arase’s position now spend more time in Abuja lobbying some powerful forces in and outside the government.

Buhari  is under pressure from about three different interests, who are pushing forward their preferred choices, New Telegraph reports.

Two of the forces are rooting for two Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs).

The third force which is however, considered to be the most powerful, is projecting the candidacy of a serving Commissioner of Police (CP) from the North, who is holding a command position in a strategic state.
