“It's Unjust And Unfair To Sideline The South-East" - Ohanaeze Fumes as Buhari Appoints Usman Alkali Baba as Acting IGP

 “It Is Unjust And Unfair To Sideline The South-East" - Ohanaeze Fumes as Buhari Appoints Usman Alkali Baba as Acting IGP
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, in a swift reaction, has condemned President Buhari for appointing a Northerner in the person of Usman Baba, as acting Inspector-General of Police, saying it is unjust and unfair.

The group said the injustice of the Federal Government was responsible for the growing agitations and insecurity in the South-East. 

Ohanaeze National Publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, stated this in an interview, where he added that it is most unfortunate that the President had chosen to sideline the people of the South-East in his recent appointment of service chiefs and now in the appointment of an IGP. 

He said;  

“It is unjust and unfair to sideline the South-East in the security architecture of the country. Injustice promotes insecurity; it promotes all forms of crisis and problems. With injustice, there is no peace anywhere. 

“What is happening in South-East today in form of agitations is as a result of injustice. So, we the elders are put in a great dilemma because the younger generation is attacking us and we have been telling them to hold on believing that the president would have a change of mind. 

“We thought that the president would be concerned about the level of injustice, agitations and crisis we have in the South-East and would try to ameliorate these things but unfortunately, he is not thinking towards that direction. It is most unfortunate and Ohanaeze will come up with a stronger statement.”

Meanwhile, the Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, who disclosed this to State House correspondents in Abuja, said that issues of professionalism, competence and years of service were considered before the appointment.

The Acting IGP was born on March 1, 1963, in Gaidam, Yobe State, and enlisted in the Nigeria Police on March 15, 1988. 

He was until his appointment a Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Force Headquarters. 

He holds a Teacher’s Grade II Certificate (TC II) from Teachers College, Potiskum, Yobe State, in 1980, obtained a BA (Ed) Political Science degree from Bayero University, Kano, in 1985. 

The acting IGP holds a Masters Degree in Public Administration, MPA, from the University of Maiduguri, Borno State, in 1997.
