He said that Idris had recorded unprecedented achievements in the area of security, adding that tenure extension of any official was the prerogative of the president.

“We appeal to President Buhari in the interest of Nigerians to extend his tenure of office, we need him at this critical time in the country,“ he said.

Ajiya said that those campaigning for the removal of the I-G were enemies of progress, adding that extension would allow him to do more for the country.

He said that under the leadership of Idris, kidnapping, armed robbery, cattle rustling among other crimes have been checked.

He said that it was on record that this extension was not the first time as other police chiefs have enjoyed the same benefits. (NAN)
