It's no longer news that Usman Alkali has been appointed as the new inspector general of police in Nigeria. A few hours ago, he was decorated by the Vice President, Osinbajo as the new Inspector General of Police.

However, Usman Alkali's appointment means that Nigeria has now had 12 different IGPs since the civilian rule in 1999. Usman Alkali who is from Yobe state is the first person to be appointed as an IGP from the North-Eastern part of Nigerian.

In this post, I have made a compilation of IGPs from 1999 up to date. From the list, the Southwest and Northwest have had the highest number of IGPs. I hope that this list confirms that the geopolitical zoning has been fair. Beyond this, the presidency is known to work on merit.

From, the compilation above, all Geo-Political Zones in Nigeria have had a representative as the IGP.

However, many people have been complaining about the appointment and I must say that since 1999, Usman Akali is the first person to be IGP from his geopolitical zone.

In conclusion, no one needs to complain.

Thanks for reading this article.
