Usman Alkali Baba, the retired Inspector General of Police, on Tuesday, expressed his confidence in the new acting IGP, Kayode Egbetokun, saying he will champion the course of the police force.

Alkali, who stated this while handing over to Egbetokun, said that he has no ill feelings about his immediate retirement from the position of IGP by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The Informant247 had reported that Tinubu on Monday, approved the retirement of Alkali alongside other service chiefs while appointing Egbetokun as new acting IGP

He said, “It’s a stage, you come, you work, and you go. I’m happy I am handing over to somebody I know will carry the mantle of leadership from where I have stopped.”

He added that Egbetokun can champion the course of the Force from where he stopped

Alkali said, “We grew up in the job, we grew up together, I was his boss at a time not even when I was IG. He worked under me twice, we’ve been working together and I know how he can go ahead to champion the course of the police from where I stopped.”

In his reaction, Egbetokun said, “Now I have just been decorated and I am looking forward to taking over tomorrow morning by 11 a.m. I really can’t describe how I feel presently, but if I have to tell you anything, I will tell you that right now I feel like a Tiger inside of me ready to chase away all the criminals in Nigeria. And some other times, I felt like a lion in me ready to devour all the internal enemies of Nigeria. That’s my feeling right now.”
