Opinion: This New Police IGP is The Right Man To End Gunmen, IPOB & ESN Crisis in Nigeria

It's no longer news that we have a new Acting Inspector General of Police in the mould of Usman Alkali Baba who was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari a few days ago. President Muhammadu Buhari decision to replace the former IGP Mohammed Adamu with Usman Alkali Baba came as a surprise to many.

Although, Mohammed Adamu's tenure initially expired and was extended by the President as he source for a better replacement. Maybe the President wasn't satisfied with Adamu's effort or how Gunmen attacked and freed over 1500 prisoners was the reason he decided to replace Adamu and tried another man.

No doubt Usman Alkali Baba assumed the IGP post with high expectations from the federal government and Nigerians, and the primary assignment would be to restore peace in the country.

If you have been following activities in the country for the past few weeks, you'll realize that a lot needs to be done towards reuniting the nation. I congratulated the President for making the right choice by appointing Usman Alkali Baba as the acting IGP.

If you have been observant you would have noticed that things have improved since the President replaced the service chief (Navy Head, Airforce head and Army head) some months ago. The newly appointed service chiefs have brought a different ball game in the right against insurgency, banditry mad crime and I can tell you they are making a big difference at the moment.

Sometimes, change is necessary when it seems nothing is working at the moment that why welcome the appointment of Usman Alkali Baba as the acting IGP and I believe he is the right man to handle the recent Gunmen, IPOB and ESN crisis in the country

At the moment there is an ongoing agitation for secession in South East who are agitating for a sovereign state (Biafra Republic) and in the Southwest who are agitating for the creation of the Oduduwa Republic.

The New IGP duty is to checkmate and control these agitations currently being led by Nnamdi Kanu for Indigenous People of Biafra Sunday Igboho for the Oduduwa Republic.

For Nigeria to move forward, the control must Unite and hence the new IGP, Usman Alkali Baba must use his power to enforce peace, safeguard lives and properties in the country.

I strongly believe that if the new IGP has what it takes to bring to an end this recent outbreak of Gunmen attack, IPOB and ESN Madness in the South East and as well end Oduduwa Republic agitation.

Do you agree with my submission? If you don't, then let us know what you think should be done?
