Dingyadi said the IGP was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari on April 6, 2021 and confirmed by the Nigeria Police Council on June, 2021 for a single tenure.

Osaigbovo Ehisienmen said the appointment was done as provided for in Section 7 (3), and Section 7 (6) of the Police Act 2020.

“These provisions of the 2020 amended Police Acts should not be misconstrued for tenure extension as erroneously reported in some sections of the media,” he said.
