Senate Declares the IG of Police, Ibrahim Idris Kpotum unfit to hold a public office, “persona non-grata”.
This all started when the IG was summoned to appear before the senate on 2nd may because of the security situation in the country. Especially the Zamfara state situation and the drama between Senator Dino Melaye and the Police.
He could not make it because he was part of the president’s entourage to Bauchi, he was later supposed to re-appear on Thursday the next day, but also the IG was around for the session. He was not given a chance to be represented, therefore he had to be there in person.
The meeting was actually rescheduled for Wednesday 9th may, but the IG was still absence.
The majority leader of the house senator Ahmad Lawan described the non-appearance as “unusual and unfortunate” some other senators also expressed their anger and sadness on the issue.
The senators had to have a closed-door session, where they resolved to declare the IG personae non-gratas, and not fit for a public post. The drama is building, let wait and see what the next action of the IG will be. What do you think about this, drop your comments below.
