Jonathan sacks IG of Police, Suleiman Abba; appoints replacement

Acting Inspector General of Police, Solomon Aranse

President Goodluck Jonathan  has fired Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba.

The sack was announced by the president’s spokesperson, Reuben Abati, in a statement on Tuesday.

No reason was given for the sack.

A Deputy Inspector General of police, Solomon Arase, was appointed to act in his stead.

Mr. Abba’s removal and the assumption of office of his replacement are with immediate effect.

Mr. Abati’s statement read in full, “President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has relieved the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba of his appointment and duties with immediate effect.

“President Jonathan has also appointed Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, as Acting Inspector-General of Police, also with immediate effect.

“Until his appointment as Mr. Abba’s replacement, Mr. Arase was the Head of the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department.

“Mr. Arase holds Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Law, as well as  Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Political Science and Strategic Studies.

“He is also a Fellow of the Nigerian Defence College.”

Mr. Abba, 56, became acting Inspector General on August 1, 2014 following the retirement of his predecessor, Mohammed Abubakar, after 35 years of public service.

He was confirmed substantive IGP on November 4, 2014.

Mr. Abba was until that appointment an Assistant Inspector General, AIG, in charge of Zone 7 command, a position he occupied since May 25, 2012. He was also a former Aide-De-Camp, ADC, to the wife of a former military Head of State, Maryam Abacha.

With his removal, Mr. Abba will proceed on forced retirement four years before he attains retirement age.

He enlisted in the Nigerian police as cadet inspector on December 31, 1984 and is actually due for retirement on March 22, 2019.

    That is good ! Just few days ago, the IG used his office to terrorise innocents thinking he is serving his boss ! Come May 29, the new IG will also be sacked !! We are having a 5 weeks IG ! Jonathan !! Jonny ooooooh !!! Completing madness !!!!

    • Parasitic foolani

      Just watch will happen between now and May 29th. Nigerians and the whole world would be shocked. The Prediction of the West about the dissolution of this fake country called Nigeria in 2015 is still on course!

      • Festuso

        Doomsday prophet! Why don’t you look at your crystal ball to see what the stars have in store for you before wishing calamity on millions of Nigerians? Everything is cool….Jonathan must shift to Otuoke or he will have nowhere to call his village after May 29….you think you can mess with Nigerians at this stage?

THERE CAN NEVER EVER BE ANY SAFE HAVEN OR ANY HIDING PLACE ON THIS EARTH FOR LOOTERS, BOTH PAST AND PRESENT IN THE IN COMING ADMINISTRATION OF BUHARI. IF YOU CAN NOT DO THE TIME THEN DO NOT DO THE CRIME

  • Guguru

    Nothing is more poisonous than the vindictiveness of Jonathan.

  • dudu

    This is why it is good to discharge one’s duties professionally with the fear of God. When he was busy invading the National Assembly with his undisciplined bunch of police thugs with Executive impunity, he thought there was no tomorrow. Alas, tomorrow is nearer today. I have no sympathy for him. He should be grateful to GEJ, to save him the anguish of being kicked out by the incoming administration.

  • Ramatu Jijitar

    sulaiman Abba you see yr life? used & dumped at the very last minute! Abeg go ask for Allah’s forgiveness. Istigfari oooooo

  • This is becoming interesting!

  • Bib Fodio

    IG Abba might have payed the price for not corporating in the alleged plot to kidnap Jega during the Orubebe episode. It was said that that was the only step hat saved the country from plunging into unimaginable crisis.

  • hummm

    Donothing is acting as if he is not leaving on the 29th of May. He keeps making various appointments that will be reversed. Now he fired an IGP knowing fully well that his current IGP appoitment is irrelevant. Something is very very strange here and ppl need to watch whats going on. He is still playing games/plotting something sinister not to handover when the time comes.

    • Nwa _ Africa

      Not really because Solomon Arase will be on acting capacity….

  • Truthometer

    Mr. Suleiman Abba should “orubebe” Jonathan’s decision of sacking him, in front of Aso Rock or National Assembly. That would be fun!

    • Mohstone

      Ah!!! Make him no try that one o!!!

  • Olawale

    This sack is suspicious. President – elect and APC and Nigerians should wash out. I know, Mr. President did not willingly congratulate GMB. He did it with the pressures from Western Nations. Nigerians demand to know while the IGP who has less than two months in the office should be sacked now. Is it an indication that the man did not rig the election for PDP or he did not support Orubebegate? Time will tell.

    • Festuso

      This is a master-stroke by the President. The new Police boss has come with impeccable credentials. Buhari cannot fail but use him at least for some period before attempting to change him. Any attempt to change such a well-qualified professional Intelligence Officer by a President who claims to be fighting corruption will be seen by many as purely based on tribal or religious factors and not merit. Buhari will be obliged to make use of Arase….at least to make EFCC effective for his anti-corruption war!

      • Mr Igbo Sanity

        Any person appointed by GEJ is persona non grata for Buhari. 100% clean up of anyone or anything touched by GEJ is the first step to clean this nation. The acting IG is acting until Buhari assumes power and appoints his man. period.

  • Action_Nigeria

    NDI-IGBO SHOULD BOYCOTT BUHARI’S ILLEGAL PRESIDENCY THAT MAY NOT BE

    Nigerians know that Buhari was not eligible to contest the 2015 Presidential election and I am very convinced that Buhari may not be sworn as President with his forged WASC.

    In this regard, Ndi-Igbo should not join the Yorubas to trample on our Constitution and on the Electoral Act 2010 as amended which disqualify Buhari from contesting the 2015 Presidential election.

    Igbo Kwenu !!!

      Hahahaha wetin be ndi-Igbo? $, N, ¥ or £

    • Festuso

      You think because you are hiding behind a computer you can write rubbish against Buhari and get away with it. I advise you to think again. Even in a democracy, he can still find ways of dealing with people like you. Read below and shut your gob:

      Decree No 4 of 1984 (Protection Against False Accusation) Decree under which two Guardian journalists, Tunde Thompson and Nduka Iraboh, were tried and convicted. The decree was made by the Gen. Muhammadu Buhari administration which at the time did not hide its disdain for the press. At the inception of his administration, Buhari made no pretentions of his hatred for the press and he backed up the threat with the promulgation of Decree No 4.

      Section 1(1) of the decree states that ‘’ Any person who published in any form, whether written or otherwise any message, rumour, report or statement or report which is false in any material particular or which brings or is calculated to bring the Federal Military Government or the government of a state or a public officer to ridicule or disrepute shall be guilty of an offence under this Decree.

      Section 3(1) states ‘’in any prosecution for an offence under this decree, the burden of proving that the message, rumour, report or statement which is the subject matter of the charge is true in every material particular shall notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any enactment or rule of law lie or the person charged.’’

  • Akanji92

    So Jonathan hates Solomon Arase? GMB cannot retain an IG appointed by outgoing presient, GEJ at the tail end of his administration. Certainly, by June 2015, Solomon Arase will be replaced. President Jonathan why cut short this man’s career.

  • Nasir

    I have no sympathy for him. he has become use and dump former IGP

  • Onyedikachi122014

    The road is being cleared for GEJ’s kinsman who is a DIG at the moment

    • SBA

      That doesn’t guarantee he will be IG because he can be retired. I can bet you the APC government won’t appoint him if he is next in line

  • The appointment of this new IG is to prepare the way for the eventual disappearance of Goodluck from Nigeria, before the 29th of May, 2015.Most of the Ministers will watch the handover from far off from the UK and US. After God, the fear of Buhari is the beginning of wisdom to the PDP looting pack.Both Diezani and Dr Okonjo Iweala had already taken off for effect.Buhari might end up handing over power to himself since Goodluck had already suggested May 28 as the handover date. Who wan die or go to prison for 300 years. A Minister told me privately that the sight of Buhari alone on television gives him epilepsy.

    Jonathan under pressure to sack IGP

    April 18, 2015

    Written by Yusuf Alli (The Nation Newspapers)

    There were indications yesterday that the Presidency is unhappy with the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba, for alleged security and protocol breaches.

    Some forces in government have started mounting pressure on President Goodluck Jonathan to drop the IGP, but the President was said not to be interested in taking any disciplinary action against Abba.

    It was learnt that Jonathan has made up his mind to leave the fate of the IGP to the incoming administration.

    Investigation revealed that there had been disquiet in the Presidency over certain steps Abba took during the recently concluded presidential election and since Jonathan conceded defeat to the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

    Some forces in government were disturbed that with the exception of Rivers, Delta, Cross River, Ekiti, Akwa Ibom and the entire South-East region, the Nigeria Police did not act the election script written for the force in strategic states like Lagos, Oyo, Ondo, Ogun, Osun, Borno, Kaduna and Kwara.

    The IGP was said to have instructed the Divisional Police Officers in Lagos to comply with the directive of the Commissioner of Police in Lagos and not any Assistant Inspector-General of Police.

    It was gathered that upon the ‘failure’ of the police in the strategic states, the Presidency was angry that the IGP was at the presentation of certificate of return to the President-elect by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, contrary to the norm.

    The Presidency had also noted that Abba was at the airport at a time to receive the President-elect.

    But a source said that what really “pissed off” the Presidency was the alleged leakage of the presidential directive to redeploy Assistant Inspector-General Tunde Ogunsakin from Rivers State on the eve of April 11 governorship poll.

    The covert decision was said to have been taken in the Presidency by three officials, including the IGP.

    A reliable source said: “There is disquiet in the Presidency on whether or not to drop the IGP for certain missteps. Some forces are angry that the police failed to back the status quo in some states during the recently-concluded poll.

    “I think the IGP chose a neutral position and opted to live up to his oath of office during the general election.

    “The IGP’s presence during the presentation of certificate of return to Buhari left many presidency officials dazed because it was alleged not to be within his official “mandate.”

    “The presence of the IGP at the National Collation Centre with Buhari was rated as a partisan move and a provocative initiative.

    “Some forces in the Presidency believe that Abba should be asked to step aside. The leakage on the redeployment of AIG Tunde Ogunsakin from Rivers State on the eve of April 11 governorship poll has fueled the demand for IGP’s sack.”

    It was however learnt that the President is not disposed to the exit of the IGP.

    Instead, he was said to have left the fate of the IGP and service chiefs to the President-elect.

    Another source added: “The President might not bow to the demand by some forces to drop the IGP because he is not a vendetta person. He has decided to leave the fate of the IGP and other service chiefs to his successor.

    “The fact that a former President sacked some public officials few days to his exit does not mean that Jonathan would follow in his footsteps.”

    A police source said: “You see, the IGP made sure that the police force was non-partisan throughout the election period, and this was a departure from the practice in 1983, 1993, 2003, 2007 and 2011 polls.

    “Naturally, some government officials, governors and politicians will not be happy at all. This IGP is professionally inclined and he has been enforcing this.

    “If you look at his antecedents even when Rivers State was volatile, he made sure that he was non-partisan. Up till today, the people of Rivers State still celebrate Abba for his professionalism.

    “He remains loyal to the President irrespective of the outcome of the election. To the best of my knowledge, he has not eroded the confidence reposed in him by the President. He keeps official secrets and he has never leaked any. Since he came on board, signals or information flow had become more compact.”

    Responding to a question, the source added: “How can any IGP ignore the President-elect at any airport? Is Gen. Buhari not a former Head of State? Does he not deserve respect as an elder statesman? All these issues they are raising are petty.”..

        Please can you share the link where Nigeria military made the claim.

        In any case, the original certificate is for Buhari, so he should collect it from them if your assertion is true and deposit same with INEC and possible make it public before declaring his assets.

      • Ken

        Where was it found? If we want to be just, Buhari would be sacked by the court. let us see how the case goes.

    • Zaiyol

      Jonathan is wickedly and criminally trying to plant mules into the incoming administration to help retard APC’s change agenda and to cover-up his criminal records of financial malfeasance. This is totally unacceptable. General Buhari will proceed immediately to remove the new IGP. He has a right to appoint members of his own administration and not Jonathan. Jonathan has lost the election and is in no position to be appointing executive officials for the in-coming administration. This criminal fiat will not stand.

  • Ahmad

    Abba, go beg Tambuwal to intervene nah?

  • Amir

    Thank God this administration has been sacked by Nigerians, otherwise they are disgusting. Nigerians are dying in South Africa, but all that this government is interested in is political appointments.

    • sawston

      Not political appointments but political retributions.!!

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    What is the rational behind the sacking and replacement of the IGP Suleiman Abba with with new IGP Solomon Arase when may 29,2015 is the hand-over date to a newly elected president Muhammadu Buhari by president Ebele Jonathan?I think president Ebele Jonathan as usual must have some hidden plot under his sleeve by rushing the sacking of IGP Abba and replacing him with Arase.

    • tundemash

      It is payback time for the corrupt Abba since he didn’t rig the election well enough for Dumbo !

  • Amir

    Jonathan sacks any officer that disagrees with his incompetence. Without excusing Abba, it is practically very difficult for any trained officer to work under a mediocre president. Jonathan is the problem not the other way round. 10 replacements won’t increase his capacity to govern or his determination to fail.

    • Tunsj

      My thoughts exactly. Have a good day.

        Burning Spear is probably a criminal handle of Ms. Alison Madueke – the embezzling petroleum minister – now hopelessly seeking asylums in more than a dozen countries in order to evade prosecution. There is nowhere to hide with GMB on top of political matters in Nigeria. Jonathan MUST accordingly account for his official and unofficial actions when he was in office for the past six and half years. All monies stolen and uncounted for during his term of office must be properly and duly returned to government Treasury – the peoples Treasury. He faces a long jail term if this does not happen.

Imported kids from Chad, Mali etc as you claimed can be substantiated with what? your guestimation I guess. When Abba tear gased Tambuwal and other law makers, when Abba interpreted the constitution and withdrew the security details of Tambuwal, he was a good man. right? and what he did was correct but now that Jonathan lost, he is a traitor, he is a sell out, he hated jonathan like hell etc. Wake up man. Not even a primary school pupil should reason like this.

        Ignore the frustrated bastard. He has been ranting all over the places since Jonathan told them to return the N2tr election money they all shared but refused to perform.

Although it would have been better not to dignify you a response, maybe, just maybe, there might be a ray of hope for you to rescue you from a sad end!

    The Nigeria President has few weeks in office and he replaces the Inspector General with another person why?
    Mr Suleiman Abba is just too young to be forced to go on retirement, this is another way Nigerian money is being wasted. The new President Buhari will definately remove Solomon Arase and equally send him on Pension because he will need to build his own security chiefs.

      Why don’t you tell him to vacate Aso Rock forthwith just because their is a president-elect…

    All those local and international people praising jonathan for conceding the elections are really ignorant of the true character of this worse Nigerian president. jonathan is an evil man who is so corrupt and does not deserve to be a councilor in bayelsa state. Because Abba did not rig election for him and also that he lost the North woefully, he is telling the North that he does not like them at all. Every decision jonathan has made during his six years inglorious presidency has been based on political, ethnic and religious considerations. GMB will appoint his own IG who will rebuild the illiterate Nigerian police to a more technological police force. jonathan is a shameful despicaple, cruel and evil lower animal.

      Bola Ahmed Tinubu: The Most Corrupt Man In Nigeria–can Buhari investigate –buhari and tinubu

      Before 1999, Tinubu had none of these:

      1. Oriental Hotel
      2. Falomo Shopping Complex
      3. First Nation Airline
      4. Lekki Concession Company
      5. Apapa Amusement Park
      6. Maiyegun Land Project
      7.The Nation
      8. Renaissance Hotel
      9.Tejuoso Market (Joint ownership)
      10. Ikeja Shopping Mall
      11. TV Continental
      12. Converted Lagos Poly land for TVC
      13. Owned NNPC Office building in Lagos
      14. Radio Continental
      15. Owned School of Nursing building in Lagos
      16. Tax Collector of Lagos State (Alpha
      Beta)
      17. Wife is a member of the National Assembly 1
      8. Son-in-law is a member of the National Assembly
      19. Daughter is the President-Gener al of Market
      Women Association in Lagos
      20. N4 billion government financed property for self at Queens Drive, Lagos.

      Tinubu acquired all of the above and many more not listed after he became Governor of Lagos State, first in 1999 and won his second term in 2003. He remains Governor Emeritus of Lagos, controlling the State’s treasury through his protege Governor Fashola. He is greedy and may forfeit all, if he doesn’t play ball. You read me right,
      people! He may lose everything if he declines to play ball with
      President Buharis certificate saga which he forged for him- Everyone knows Tinubu used Obj–Jega and the CIA to impose Buhari on us–so Buhari should commence his anti-corruption crusade with tinubu–for all to see–.

    did he really expect his Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba will pull
    away from his kith and kin in a 2015 election regarded by northerners as
    a holy war? Now, Jonathan is replacing Suleiman Abba after the northern
    mass rigging and damage have been done! Did Jonathan ever believe that
    if instructed Suleiman Abba will truthfully investigate this simple question, viz:

    One of the biggest mistakes Jonathan made–was the appointment of Dasuki as the NSA—both the previous IGP of police—–the outgoing one—never worked for the interest of Nigeria–they were all there—–to help the Fulani North assume the mantle of leadership—The president left himself open to all sorts of abuses the very day he sacked Azazi——-The hawks jumped in–and because they all knew Azazi was one the best intelligence officers–in Nigeria they arranged with the CIA to have him assassinated–Because were he to be alive——he would still have been passing on information to Jonathan——The president was a loner right from the word go—–Every being in aso rock worked against him——From David Mark to tambuwal—They sold him to cheap–to the outside world——–The NSA is there to advise the president on the various areas of our national security policies———but dasukli was there to misdirect the president—-See the trouble with appointments in government is that most of them—-are sponsored by the emirs-sultans and obas—-including the former heads of state like IBB— in d case of dasuki—-obj gusau———and co———-But Jonathan did not know that none of these former heads of state ever wanted to see his tribal marks in aso rock—

      Thanks for calling PT ‘s attention to this important point. Freedom of speech is circumscribed by the DUTY to respect other people’s right to their dignity and good name. A huge libel action may end up being initiated against PT for its wanton failure to exercise editorial diligence in preventing utter rubbish without a scintilla of evidence being posted and reposted unduly on this site. Someone like burning -burnt up- spear should be prevented from continuing his jaundiced maligning of other people when it is obvious to discerning people that he must truly have critical mental issues that require extensive neuro psychiatric hospitalization.

    Solomon Arase, Sir, although I do not know the politics behind sacking Mr Suleman Abba which warranted your recognition and elevation, one thing I have come to know since today is that diligence, hard-work and honesty do not and will not go unrewarded. Although it may tarry, God never allows the possessor of those qualities go unrewarded. In my own little corner, I have since the announcement been inundated with the news that you are hardworking, diligence and honest bu,t unfortunately, have always been bypassed for elevation at the due time. With this, I thank God that He has elevated you to the pinnacle of your career and that you go home with all the appurtenances due you as Inspector General of Police. Given your enviable record of service and academic excellence, I hope and pray that President Jonathan confirms you in earnest, at least, before he exits office. Congratulations, Sir.

    The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has have linked the current hate attacks on Africans living in South Africa by the locals to Muhammadu Buhari and Shagari, who gave the same treatment to Africans, mostly West Africans in 1984.

    They claimed that the ‘Ghana-must-go’ policy against Africans was Muhammadu Buhari’s Legacy to Africa in 1984.

          @constitutional defenders:

          The 1999 constitution says nobody must submit false certificate to INEC. Buhari defied the law.
          He submitted FALSE certificate to INEC through declaratory statement verified on oath saying
          he obtained WASC in 1961. That is intentional violation of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria.
          He must be punished for it under the law of the land. That is what democracy means.

          The 15.4 million people who voted for Buhari (representing 8.65% of Nigeria’s population)
          wasted their votes because everybody is presumed to know the law. Those 15.4m voters
          were told since December 2014 that Buhari has no proof of WASC. The 15.4m people still
          went out in the sun to vote for Buhari – as if they are too illiterate to know the consequence.

          By irresponsibly daring the country’s Constitution, the punishment for their own stupidity is
          nullification of all those 15.4 million votes to make them void. That is what the 1999 Constitution
          says must compulsorily happen next.

        NO JUDGE OF ANY COURT IN NIGERIA HAS ANY RIGHT OR POWER
        TO AWARD MUHAMMADU BUHARI A WASC CERTIFICATE WHICH HE
        DOES NOT HAVE. FOR UNDER THE 1999 CONSTITUTION, AS IT IS,
        THE JUDGES IN ALL COURTS ARE COMMANDED TO DIS-QUALIFY
        MUHAMMADU BUHARI FORTHWITH FOR HIS VIOLATION OF

        SECTION 31 OF THE ELECTORAL ACT.

          Ask the rogues in the Army Hqs that stole and then returned President-elect Buhari’s credentials.

          Meanwhile, please, show us Dumbo Dumbo’s PhD thesis. The Ole of Otuoke may not have long to stay there. Jail is his next home for criminal forgery.

    I am glad good things were said about Mr. Suleiman Abba. No one is perfect, but I think that he was a good man and a good police officer; in deed one of the best in our world. All his good works speak for him otherwise why was he promoted from the rank of an AIG to the rank of an IG skipping DIG? I believe that he was one of the best IGs, if not the best that Nigeria has ever produced (just like IG Onovo, IG from Cross River States in the middle 80’s and their very few likes). But you know, such good people don’t last long in office. Why would he be sacked but those above him in office (like in the PSC and other related ministries, etc spared? Who is deceiving whom? May Almighty God (Allah) use General Muhammadu Buhari to help all of us in this country.

    On another note, even though, the kidnappers and masterminds/sponsors of Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba’s disappearance in Anambra state have not been investigated or found for over three years now, we could forgive Mr. Abba for not helping for only him knows his reasons, but we’ll see; maybe someone above him stopped him? May GMB and his administration help the long-time suffering family of Mr. Udemba and Nigerians dig deeper and get to the bottom of this kidnap case so we can all know all those who either sponsored, helped, aided and abetted, in any way at all, the disappearance of this good man, Mr Udemba. We believe that all those previously suppressing this investigation cannot do so anymore, thank God! Because Mr. Udemba and his family are also common citizens of Nigeria and not just of a state in Nigeria. Also, we strongly believe that we now have a father of a nation who will listen to all his children. Please, if you browse, you will get the entire story(www.emmanueludemba.wordpress.c…). Thank God and thank you all.

    We welcome Inspector-General Solomon Arase as a highly fit and proper person.
    We commend the good judgment of President Jonathan for making this choice.
    We are interested in one thing and one thing only: Buhari’s WASC certificate!!!
    With Inspector General Arase we’re confident the whole truth can now be known.

      Neither the original copy, Certified True Copy, CTC, nor statement of result
      of Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s WASC result is in his personal file.
      What I have said here is what is contained in his service records’ personal file.
      We have not added or subtracted anything.”

          As Buhari’s WASC trial begins in Court today……..

          Nigeria is corrupt but this is not a court case that permits corruption because it solely rests on
          a CERTIFICATE ISSUED ONLY BY AN INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION – WAEC – which has since January 2015 written a signed and sealed letter to say it never issued a WASC certificate to any Muhammadu Buhari either in 1961 or at any time before or after that date. Buhari must either
          present his claimed WASC certificate in court; and go for swearing-in as president on May 29th;
          or fail to present it, and he is constitutionally dis-qualified pronto. No other option is opened to him.

            @gamechanger:

            You are right. That is the law. No Judge can decide a fact issue of whether Buhari

            has Wasc or not except on the real evidence placed before the court. So it is Buhari

            who now has the duty to put a genuine Wasc certificate in evidence before the Judge.

            Looks like you still want a fresh presidential election between your defeated candidate and another candidate in the unlikely event that President-elect Buhari is pronounced ineligible to contest? Keep dreaming ….

            But please be reminded that the rogues who stole General Buhari’s credentials from military vaults have since returned them. Shame on them, shame on you.

            But please be advised, too, that your defeated candidate Dumbo Dumbo has and presented a fake PhD certificate to the INEC. He will end up in jail if matters are taken to their logical conclusion.

            If you doubt me, show me Dumbo Dumbo’d PhD thesis.

    Maybe Tompolo will take over from Arase next week. Banana Republic!

    There are two possible reasons for sacking the Police IG.

    First, it is probable that Jonathan has not given up, that he wants to fight Nigerians and scuttle the hand-over process, in which case he would need an IG from South South who will stand by him to crush any uprising side by side with the notorious Mbu. The recent phone conversation with him by the US Vice-President suggests may have arisen from security reports that the outgoing government had some sinister plans. Another evidence of this is the plan to hand-over power to Buhari at a dinner party on 28 May, creating power vacuum between that date and the official hand-over date of 29 May 2015.

    The second possible reason is the recent news reports suggesting that Orubebe and his criminal gang from South South wanted to truncate the electoral process by kidnapping the INEC chairman, Jega, at the National Civic Centre while the presidential election results were being announced. According to that report, it was the refusal of Jega’s Police security details that saved the day. Jonathan’s aides may have convinced him that the story was placed in the newspapers by Suleiman Aba to make himself acceptable to the in-coming government.

    Anyway, it is unfortunate for Suleiman Aba. He had wanted to help Jonathan rig the election. “Do not stay around polling booths to protect your votes” he had warned voters. But the offer was instantly rejected by Patience Jonathan and the PDP in order to appear good to the public. What else did they want the man to do?
