Danjibrin said as concerned youth of the region so desirous of seeing adequate security to lives and property, they deemed it necessary to commend the recent efforts of security agencies in the fight against insurgency, banditry and other vices in the region and other parts of the country.

In specific terms, they pointed to the positive impacts of the Nigeria Police Force under the leadership of the IGP Mohammed Adamu whose contributions in synergy with the military is yielding positive results in the fight against insecurity in the country.

“In the light of the feats mostly recorded by Adamu – led police, we further deem it wise to urge President Muhammadu Buhari to consider extending the tenure of IGP Mohammed Adamu so that the police can continue to implement its tactics in dealing with the insurgents, bandits and kidnappers,” the coalition said.

The urge is further spiked by the fact that IGP Adamu’s reforms and initiatives in the Force informed their decision to make the special appeal to Mr President, “As was the case with his colleagues, the Service Chiefs of the Army, Navy and Air Force, whose tenures were twice extended by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
