Dino Melaye: IGP fails to appear before Senate

In utter dismay, Na’Allah said, the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly matters, Senator Ita Enang has told him that the IGP has travelled to Bauchi with President Buhari.

“Mr. President, the IGP is not here. This afternoon, the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly matters told me that the IGP has travelled to Bauchi with President Buhari. ”

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki asked the Chairman of Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Abu Ibrahim to explain what happened to the invitation of IGP.

Abu said, the IGP has sent his DIG operations, but Saraki declined, saying it is IGP that was invited.

“Did we invite the DIG or IGP?,” Saraki asked.

Senators who spoke were unanimous that the IGP lacked respect for the senate.

Senator Sam Egwu insisted that the IGP was supposed to have written to the senate that he would not be available, saying such wouldn’t generated anger from the lawmakers.
