Osinbajo: Why Buhari Appointed Usman Alkali As Nigeria’s New Police Chief by Liposure: 8:13pm On Apr 07
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said this Wednesday in Abuja while decorating Mr Alkali as with his new position.
By Nasir Ayitogo
President Muhammadu Buhari appointed Usman Alkali as the Acting Inspector General of Police because he was the most senior among those qualified to hold the position, an official has said.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said this Wednesday in Abuja while decorating Mr Alkali with his new position.

Mr Buhari, who appointed Mr Alkali, is currently in the UK for medical treatment.

“Your selection by Mr President follows a rigorous process where all eligible Deputy Inspectors-General of Police and Assistant Inspectors-General of police were considered. The president then appointed you as the most senior qualified and eligible officer,” Mr Osinbajo said.

Read the full statement by the vice president below.

Let me once again offer my congratulations to you, new Inspector-General of Police on your appointment. Your selection by Mr President follows a rigorous process where all eligible Deputy Inspectors-General of Police and Assistant Inspectors-General of police were considered. The president then appointed you as the most senior qualified and eligible officer.

“This is a departure from the past when the selection of the new Inspector General of Police often meant the immediate retirement of a cohort of senior police officers whose vast experience and training would no longer be available to the country.

“This appointment, which is largely on the basis of seniority and competence, will ensure that you have access to professional and experienced officers to support you in your new role.

“Before I go on, let me thank the outgoing Inspector General of Police. I want to thank you for your services to this nation. And for your innovative work carried on through your years as the Inspector-General of Police; thank you for your services to Nigeria. IG, you are assuming office at a very turbulent time in the life of our people. There are multiple threats to law, order and public safety.

“The role of law enforcement and particularly that of the police force as primary agency charged with maintaining law and order has never been more important. The police is our institution of first resort, the first line of defence against crime and anarchy and the first sign of the strength of the state.

“Last year, Mr President signed the new police act, the first police reform legislation to be enacted in almost 50 years. The Act is the centrepiece of our commitment to reinventing the police as an institution that we can all be proud of. It articulates this administration’s vision of the modern competent police force as an institution committed to the preservation of human rights and human dignity and protection of the public against all criminal threats. The challenges before you are indeed onerous and will test your mettle, the organisation you are leading is one that is itself facing several challenges. Your officers work still in extremely difficult conditions. And some face the threat of physical harm by terrorists, hostile non-state actors while in the line of duty but they have lived up to expectations.

“There is no question at all that there is a lot that needs to be done. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. Under your leadership. The police must now rebuild in some ways also the broken bridges of trust to the public and regain the confidence of the citizenry. This is an ongoing challenge, it is an ongoing task that the police force and all of the senior members of the police force must take on as a responsibility, that of the continual process of building trust with the Nigerian people.


“One of the ways you can do this is by implementing the community policing policy which had already taken off and reconceptualizing policing as a task carried out in partnership with local communities and by officers who are members of these localities. Under your leadership, the force must live up to all of the highest standards of professional conduct and compliance with the rule of law. It must significantly improve the welfare and working conditions of its officers while rapidly scaling up its forensic, logistical, logistical and operational capacities.

“To meet today’s challenges. You must stamp out the excesses and abuses and the culture of impunity, demonstrated by some elements of the force which provoke public outrage against institution. In short, your mission is nothing less than the restoration of dignity and high repute of the policing professional and the continuous oiling of that machinery of the police force that enables it to be one that is respected by the populace and by the international community.

“The testimony of your pedigree and your career thus far is that you are up to the task. The administration stands ready to work with you to reposition the NPF and take it to unprecedented height of professionalism, competence and excellence.

“I, therefore, welcome you as a key partner to this administration’s comprehensive programme of reform aimed at repositioning the Nigeria Police Force as a modern, responsive and citizen-centred law enforcement service. We all expect that you will justify the confidence that Mr President has reposed in you, enable you to lead the force in these times. I congratulate you once more on behalf of Mr President, and his cabinet. I wish you all the very best in your tenure. Thank you.”

Osinbajo was the salesboy and marketer of the “Roadmap to a New Nigeria.” What started as a sales role for the APC has continued as a public relations role for the Buhari- Osinbajo led government.His role under the government had shifted from explaining economics and policies, to that of a helpless official who only showed up where crisis occurred. He seemed to play the role of the government’s pacifier to the nation.

For every disaster that happened in the country, Osinbajo’s face was there to offer condolences and brief the president, followed by photo. On social media, there were more apologies. The question people asked and and is still being asked is this, why not resign? How does a professor of law, a pastor, not see the contradiction of his presence in a government that has clearly failed to live to its promises?


In Osinbajo’s case, his credibility has been affected by his constant role of playing government apologist. If anything, what Nigerians will miss when this government is voted out is the well curated pictures that tell a story of incompetence, irresponsibility and inaction. Osinbajo’s more painful legacy will be that he served under a two time dictator and had no integrity to leave before the bell tolled.

They will tell you a good servant is his reward.
What is osibanjo's reward for reducing himself to nothing because of these cabals?

While on official duty with IG, he was replaced. Isn't this humiliation of the highest order?


And here he is glorifying the new IG as he was mandated to do.


Had this been the other way round, no topic will be enough in the next one week about this national humiliation.

See as they quietly grazed over it as no big deal.

For God's sake a president should consider every region in his appointments irrespective of whatever because he is constitutionally bound to do so as his oath of presidency remains.

The overt bigotry, nepotism, clannishness, favouritism and the actively ongoing ethno-religious domination in his government have ended up polarizing the divide in Nigeria beyond imagination.

I hate Buhari because he is not what a president should be in a multi-polar nation like Nigeria in a 21st world.It is because of this kind of reasoning that made the president sees Nigeria as his fiefdom that he can rule anyhow.

can you appoint someone that will destroy your government?
I can never appoint a man that want to bring me down.
If buhari appoint a man that will sabotage his government, people like you will start blaming the president.
I cannot appoint a security chief that will be taking orders from a terrorist(namdi kanu).

And how has the well known fellow clueless, incompetent and corrupt people he appointed in the past 5 years helped the course of this bastardized nation today? Politics is all about diplomacy to accommodate all interests irrespective of whatever.

However, what has the bigoted president done? The only unique thing this government have instituted is widespread irreconcilable divisions with its attendant consequences.

I hope you are clapping for general TY Danjuma for what he did to ironsi.
Jonathan never appointed a northerner as chief of army staff through out his 6yrs.
Jonathan even appointed a man from the same state with him as chief of army staff, but buhari has never appointed one person from his state (katsina) as one of the service chiefs.
There are more than 300 tribes in Nigeria, why is it that anytime an igbo man is not appointed then we start hearing the so called "nepotism"
No matter what buhari do the igbos, they will never like him. For your information, the present igp is not a Fulani man.

Of course this may not be true. How Osinbajo is comfortable as a pastor serving in a government headed by the assistant chief devil himself remains a mystery. Buhari is only next to the devil in terms of evil.

The Bible says "no man can serve two masters..."he will definitely love one more than the other.

Sometimes i wonder what will happen if someone from SE or SS becomes the next president and adamantly refuses to give anyone from NE or NW appointment. Even Ministerial Appointments, give them Minister of State.

How will the North Enjoy it?

Why would "Pastor" Osibanjo open his mouth to offer such explanation. The narrative has changed because someone of his extraction was well in position to take over. What happened in those years within his tenure and those of his kinsmen when the most qualified were compulsorily retired to bring up a joker to the ranks.

He slaughtered intelligence and credibility to call up his Fulani brethren.

Osibanjo you are lacking words...wind up!!

You don't know the reason and no one is asking you, we have seen all the love you have for the Police, you were part of the hatred for the Police, that is why even the salary increase promised by the President out of consideration during the endsars you frustrated, as nothing paid till date to the Police, you did not bother about the family of the killed Policemen or what they are going through right now. You don't have power to appoint but to frustrate
