The Presidency has said no date had been fixed for the announcement of a successor to Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu who reached retirement age on Monday.

Presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said on Monday during a Channels Television programme that he was not aware of any imminent announcement.

He said the appointment of the next IGP would not be based on ethnic considerations.

“The President returns to Abuja on Tuesday. He should be at his desk by Wednesday. I don’t know when he will do this. One thing I can assure you is that in places sensitive like that, there is no vacuum that will subsist. So, the system will take care of itself.

“The President will rather have an IGP who will make you and I safer, protect life and property than one who is more pronounced by his tribal marks.

“If you are going to appoint the service chiefs from every ethnic group in this country, you are going to have more than 250 IGPs, 250 Chiefs of Army Staff, 250 Chiefs of Naval Staff. It’s not going to work like that. And they have their own systems of producing leadership.
