Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo General Assembly Worldwide has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to consider naming Igbo as the next police inspector-general (IGP).

The party responded to the President’s appointment of new chiefs of command.

On Tuesday, Femi Adesina, Presidential Speaker, declared the resignation of the Chiefs of Staff and the recruitment of new individuals to fill their positions.

The current service chiefs are Fortunate Irabor, Chief of the Security Staff; Ibrahim Attahiru, Chief of the Army Staff; Awwal Gambo, Chief of the Naval Staff; and Isiaka Amao, Chief of the Air Staff.

Reacting to the developments in the statement on Wednesday, Onuorah Onyeachonam, the group’s president-general, said that Buhari had removed Igbo from the nomination.

He requested the president to nominate the highest-ranking Igbo native to force as an IGP.

Onyeachonam asked the new service chiefs to take up the task and combat the “daring challenges of insecurity in our country”.

“There is no Igbo man among the newly appointed Service Chiefs. Those who claim that the newly appointed Chief of Defense Staff Maj Gen Leo Irabor is an Igbo man should tell us if Irabor is an Igbo name,” he said.

“As the Inspector General of Police is due for retirement and fast getting ready to exit the police apex position, we call on the APC- led Federal Government to consider an Igbo man for the position of the Inspector General of Police.

“If there is no Igbo man or woman qualified for the job of the IGP, promote the Igbos next in line in the Police Force to fit in.”
