Buhari to IG: Nigerians have high expectations for you

President Muhammadu Buhari on his return from his two-week medical trip charged Acting Inspector-General (IG) Usman Baba to not disappoint the expectations of Nigerians.

President Buhari returned to Abuja on Thursday after a 16-day trip on medical check-up.

While responding to questions from reporters at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, the President recalled the process that produced Baba as acting IG, noting that he had been part of the system all along and has the required experience to secure the country.

He said: “Well, we went through the system. There was a committee by the Minister of Police Affairs. They gave me some names and he happened to be the one chosen.

“He knows his job, he has been in it for a long time, he went through all the trainings, he has the necessary experience. So, we have high expectation from him”.

On the performance of the Service chiefs, the President said they have so far tried their best to relieve the country of the security crises, expressing the hope that their best would be enough to stabilize the country.

Buhari said: “Oh yes, they have been in the system all the way; they know what is wrong; they know what is right and I think they are doing their best. I hope their best will be good enough for Nigeria”.
