There are reports that President Muhammadu Buhari may have approved a six-month tenure extension for the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

The opposition political parties, under the umbrella of the Coalition of United Political Parties, have threatened to drag President Muhammadu Buhari before the court over the planned tenure extension.

President Buhari was said to have agreed in principle to grant the IG additional six months in office to enable him coordinate and supervise the forthcoming general elections in the country.

Idris is officially due to retire from the Nigeria Police Force on January 3, 2019, after the mandatory 35 years in service but has reportedly lobbied some senior Presidency officials who helped appeal to Buhari to extend the IG’s tenure.
