NBA faults extension of IGP’s tenure
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has faulted the decision by President Muhammadu Buhari to extend the tenure of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu.
The association has consequently sued at the Federal High Court in Lagos to compel the reversal of the purported tenure extension.
NBA in the suit, marked FHC/L/CS/214/2021 as defendants: The President, Federal Republic of. Nigeria; the Police Service Commission (PSC) and Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, The Nation reported.
The NBA’s contention, in the suit is that the IGP ceased to be a member of the Nigeria Police Force when he attained the milestone of thirty-five years of service.
“Therefore, the President’s extension of Adamu’s tenure by three months, in the NBA’s respectful view, is unconstitutional”.
