There have been speculations that his tenure might be extended till the elections are over but that has cannot been confirmed.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the police faulted PDP for demanding that the inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, should resign his position over alleged political bias.
Jimoh Moshood, the police spokesperson on Thursday, November 29, described the call by the PDP for the resignation of Idris as laughable.

The police spokesperson also dismissed the allegation that the police was working in favour of any political party, insisting that the force has remained neutral.
Moshood said the police are only focused on law enforcement and ensuring that the forthcoming elections were conducted peacefully.
In a related development, the All Progressives Congress reacted to the recent calls by PDP, demanding the resignation of chairman of the INEC Yakubu Mahmoud and Idris Ibrahim.
The APC described the call made by the PDP national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, as suspicious, describing the opposition party as “a caricature of a political party.”
In a statement sent to Legit.ng on Sunday, December 2, by the spokesperson of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC said the reasons given by Secondus for his call were “baseless suspicions.”
