The Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi, has stated that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba, will not be retiring midway into the general elections.

Dingyadi made the disclosure to State House Correspondents after the first Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting of 2023, noting that the IGP already has an appointment letter extending his term in office.

He explained the Police Act 2020 has changed the rules for an IGP’s retirement.

Responding to a question from correspondents on whether or not the IGP would be retiring indeed as expected, Dingyadi said:

“I don’t know where you got your record but let me say that by the provision of the Police Act 2020, the IG is now supposed to have a kind of four-year period and Mr. President has already given him a letter of appointment in that regard.”

There have been speculations lately that the Police Chief, who clocks 60 years on March 1, 2023, will honour the rule that mandates public servants to go on retirement at 60.
