A civil society organisation, Citizens Action for Good Governance (CAGG), has defended President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to extend the tenure of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, by three months.

The National Coordinator, CAGG, Nazir Galadanchi, while addressing a media conference on the reactions that trailed the tenure elongation, stressed that there was nothing wrong with the president’s action.

Galadanchi, who insisted that the president has the prerogative to do so, added that there were precedents of such tenure extensions in the country.

“We have deemed it necessary at this point to salute the wisdom and foresight of our father, the Commander-In-Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR), for extending the appointment of Mr. Adamu Mohammed, for another three months as the Inspector General of Police.

“This action by President Buhari is welcomed by us because you don’t change your winning team in the middle of the game, and we in Citizens Action for Good Governance (CAGG) appreciate and support this action.
