Buzzing Today: Why Buhari may not sack IGP Idris

President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered Ibrahim Idris, the current IGP  to relocate to Benue and ensure law and order in the land, following the death of innocent citizens at the hands of Fulani herdsmen. Rather than do this, Idris didn’t spend up to 24 hours in Benue. Nigerians have expressed their annoyance and called on the president to fir Idris for flouting his order. Well, according to TheCable, Buhari might not let Idris go, for the following reasons;

Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, was the commissioner of police, who supervised the security apparatus for the controversial Kano presidential election of 2015, where President Muhammadu Buhari got nearly two million votes. After the elections, Idris was promoted to assistant inspector general (AIG), and in a few months, he was named the acting inspector general of police to take over from Arase.

Could it be that IGP Idris offered Buhari a favour during the 2015 elections in Kano? Is there a 2019 outlook to this? Or like Femi Adesina, the presidential spokesman said, Idris sins are still “in the realm of allegations?”


What do you think???
