In another report, Yemi Osinbajo said President Buhari appointed Usman Alkali as the acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) because he is the most senior among those qualified to hold the position.

He noted that the process of appointing Alkali was a departure from the past when the selection of the new IGP often meant the immediate retirement of a cohort of senior police officers whose vast experience and training would no longer be available to the country.

The vice president noted that Alkali would have access to many experienced senior officers to work within his new role as the nation's police chief.
