PSC workers union asks Tinubu to sack IGP over recruitment impasse

Emirate tussle

By Kingsley Omonobi

Following what they referred to as deliberate misrepresentation and falsehood about the recently concluded recruitment, the workers union of Police Service Commission, PSC, has called for the removal of Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun.

Recall that last Saturday, the police in a statement alleged that the process was marred by corruption and other irregularities, thereby rejecting the recruitment, an allegation denied by the Joint Union Congress of the PSC.

Speaking with newsmen yesterday, the chairman, Joint Union Congress, JUC, of the Police Service Commission, Adoyi Augustine Adoyi, stated that the action of the IGP was against the ethics of his profession.

He said:  “We begin this press conference with a clarion call on the President and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, to immediately relieve the IGP, Kayode Egbetokun, of his appointment as IGP.

“Our concern comes from the fact that a public officer who misleads the president is causing confusion in the country and may lead to chaos which is antithetical to his duty as a police officer.”
