Mr. Suleiman Abba was on Tuesday confirmed as substantive Inspector General of Police by President Goodluck Jonathan.
He was confirmed at a Police Council meeting held in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, and thereafter admitted into the Council.
The President’s media aide, Dr. Reuben Abati, said on his Twitter handle @abati1990 – “At Police Council meeting today, President Jonathan confirms Suleiman Abba as substantive Inspector General of Police.”
Abba was appointed the acting IGP on August 1 after the retirement of erstwhile police chief, Mohammed Abubakar.
He is the country’s 17th indigenous police helmsman.
