Zamfara state governor, Dr Bello Mohammed Matawalle has congratulated Usman Alkali Baba over his appointment as the Inspector General of Police (IGP) by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Matawalle in a statement by the Director General, Media Public Enlightenment and Communications, Malam Yusuf Idris Gusau described the appointment of Usman Alkali Baba as a positive step in the right direction.
Matawalle prays that Zamfara State enjoys quick response when the need arises from IGP Usman Alkali Baba.
“This appointment no doubt is an investment in the right direction that will inject new life, innovation and focus in the Nigerian Police especially at these trying times of different forms of security challenges.
“We are sure that President Muhammadu Buhari and the federal government have high regards and confidence in the new appointee to effectively pilot the affairs of the Nigerian police and wish him success in the tasks ahead,” the governor noted.
Matawalle also salutes the efforts of the out gone IGP Ibrahim Adamu who he said has put in his best as the IGP in fighting criminality throughout the nation.
“The governor express appreciation for the support given to the state by the former IGP through his quick response to requests in the fight against armed bandits, cattle rustlers, kidnappers and other heinous crimes in Zamfara,” he said.
Matawalle said deployment of various units of police special forces have decimated criminality in the state.
