Police Reform Bill: Why Ibrahim Idris Rejected Senate Confirmation of IG of Police

The Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris rejected a new provision in the Police Reform bill that requires a Senate confirmation of Inspector Generals of Police.

He said this during the Senate Public Hearing for the New Police Reform Bill. According to him, this will lead to the politicizing the Nigerian Police.

“Again, the police is of the view that the requirement of the confirmation of the Senate for the appointment and removal of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) will tend to politicize the office Inspector General of Police.

“This will be a disadvantage to the police in its efforts to fight crime in the society.

“It is therefore suggested that requirement for the confirmation of the appointment and removal of the Inspector General of Police be removed from the Bill”.

The New Police Reform bill that is up for amendment will ensure efficiency, accountability and respect for human rights by the Nigerian Police.
