  1. Abbah is an illiterate IG. He is not refined at all. He is so good at eye service. Have u all forgot that this same Abbah was the one that withdrew Security personnels from the speaker of the House of Rep because he decampd PDP for APC. I do not know if Abbah is knowledgable enough to know that Nigeria Police Force is not for any political party as potrayed by his action. I also do not know if Abbah knows that the security personnels attached to the speaker is not because of him Mr Tambuwa as a person but the office he occupies. What ever we do people are watching u. Buhari’s good name of 1983-85 is speaking for him till today. Good name should be our target what ever office we occupy.

  2. He’s a good riddance to bad rubbish,after all he’s has complete his task for GEJ and of no use to him again. My question now is: what legacy has he left behind?

  3. GEJ didn’t act well by sacking Abbah bcos he has really compromised his actions in favour of him. I wonder d gossip that has charged GEJ against Abbah it must b an expensive type.
