It is least among my worries as far as policing is concerned. It is at the prerogative of the president to extend the tenures offices of IGPs, Deputy IGPs, COPs and other ranks that he deems fit up to 5 years and that is very constitutional and nobody can challenge that in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Written by | October 5, 2018 | 0
