Former IGP Usman Alkali Reacts to His Dismissal by President Tinubu

Former Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali, has said he has no resentment regarding his removal from the position following President Bola Tinubu’s compulsory retirement directive.

Abujapress reports that President Tinubu mandated the retirement of Mr. Alkali on Monday, along with the heads of the Nigerian military.

Kayode Egbetokun, a Deputy Inspector General of Police, assumed the position as Alkali’s successor.

After completing his handover to Mr. Egbetokun, Mr. Alkali shared his thoughts on his departure. “It’s a natural progression in one’s career. You come, you work, and eventually, you step aside. I am content knowing that I am passing the baton to someone I trust to continue the leadership from where I left off,” he stated.

When questioned about his familiarity with his successor, Mr. Alkali replied, “We have a longstanding professional relationship. We have worked together closely, and I have even been his superior during my time as IG. He has served under my command twice, and I am confident in his ability to advance the objectives of the police force.”

“Today, as I receive my decoration, I eagerly anticipate assuming my new role tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. Words cannot fully capture my present emotions, but I can tell you that right now, I feel a ferocious determination within me, akin to a tiger, ready to combat crime across Nigeria. At other times, I sense the strength of a lion, prepared to vanquish all internal adversaries of our nation. Such is my sentiment at this moment,” Mr. Alkali concluded.
