The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has decorated Usman Alkali Baba with the rank of Inspector-General of Police (IGP).
This followed President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval of Baba’s appointment as Acting Inspector-General of Police on Tuesday.
The appointment which was announced by the Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, took immediate effect.
The Acting IGP replaced Mohammed Adamu whose tenure expired February 1, 2021, but had it extended for three months.
Until his appointment, Usman Alkali Baba was a Deputy Inspector-General of Police. His appointment will be in acting capacity pending his confirmation by the Senate.
