Sack IGP "Abba" for Rubbishing Tambuwal; He’s Too Partisan


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the Inspector-General of Police Suleiman Abba is presiding over the most-partisan police force ever in the history of Nigeria.

A statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said it was also condemnable for the police chief to dare to say he does not recognize Aminu Tambuwal as House of Reps Speaker.

“As the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Tambuwal is the symbol of authority of the House and our country’s number four citizen. By saying he does not recognize him as the Speaker; the IG has also indicated he does not recognize the entire House of Representatives. For a man who was not elected by anybody to make this impertinent assertion about elected representatives of the people is tantamount to treason.” 

“Mr. Abba is presiding over perhaps the most-partisan police force ever in the history of our nation. He has thrown professionalism, neutrality and fairness to the wind and made the police a willing tool in the hands of a frenzied executive. He cannot be trusted to ensure a level playing field for all parties at the next general elections; hence he should be removed immediately.”

Following last week’s “invasion” of the national assembly complex by the police, the statement also queried why the Senate President was allowed to enter the National Assembly just like the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives but attempted to stop Speaker Tambuwal.

“One wonders why the police was so concerned about the security of the National Assembly that it engaged in selective granting of passage to the principal officers of the Assembly. The Senate President was allowed to enter without qualms, just like the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives. But when the Speaker came, he was locked out. That speaks volumes about the intention of the police,” APC said.
