“I believe that he will bring to bear this perigee to ensure that he puts the professional focus of his job to satisfy all and sundry, both the government, opposition, and all ordinary men and by sticking to his direction so that whatever decision he takes will be in the best interest everybody and everybody will be convinced.
“I have no doubt in my mind that he will be an IGP that will be a pride to this nation.”
