Nigeria’s 20th Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, is rounding off his career after his two-year tenure in the police’s highest office, starting from January 2019.

He succeeded IGP Idris Ibrahim whose tenure was allegedly marked by low performance and exposure of the police to avoidable ridicule.

In the periodic ritual at the force headquarters, Adamu successor is the burning issue among officers, rank, and file, all of whom clandestinely but freely express their preferences to receive the baton from Adamu.

While the raging debates hold in quiet mode, the affected senior officers are in the know but maintaining a measured distance to avoid being tagged desperados.

It was gathered that one of the candidates, who hails from the North, had issued a strong warning to his subordinates against discussion related to Adamu’s successor, let alone associating his name with the alleged scheming playing out at the force headquarters.

“A colleague told me that nobody should talk about that topic in that office, even though it is the major subject since December, especially when some promotions were announced. Our people have started their usual permutation but I am not interested in anyone who gets it,” a source said.

While the source declined further comment, his unspoken word was indicative of two things: One, President Muhammadu Buhari’s likely extension of Adamu’s tenure according to constitutional provision which confers such power on him as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

However, another source offered a counter view declaring that President Buhari would not want to match his feet on section 18 (8) of the police act, 2020, which states, “that every police officer shall on recruitment or appointment serve the Nigeria Police Force for 35 years or until he attains the age of 60 years, whichever comes first.”

Secondly, two officers are touted to be enjoying more mention. They are the newly promoted Assistant Inspector General of Police Dasuki Galadanchi and acting DIG, AIG. Moses Jitoboh who currently heads Research and Planning Department

Further findings have dug out the name of Jitoboh, a Bayelsa State-born cop, as the most favoured. It was learned that Jitoboh’s human relations had earned him priviledged postings in the past 20 years with a record of competence, which, another source said, won Nigeria Police some accolades at the corridor of power, precisely the Presidency, where his physical presence was a noticeable feature, especially at State functions attended by the immediate past, President Goodluck Jonathan.

“I never met him, I only saw him on television but all I have heard of him have made me always wish to work with him. He is the type of leader Nigeria Police need now to gain more confidence. I think you know what I mean as one who has covered us for a long time,” he noted.

Following the source’s lead, our correspondent further gathered that Jitoboh served President Jonathan from when he was deputy governor in Bayelsa State between 1999 and 2005 to Jonathan’s last day in the Presidential Villa on May 29, 2015. He was in charge of the presidential security personnel, posting, and supervision.

The detribalised officer, having attended schools at different geo-political zones in the country, is said to have possessed what a source described as an intimidating credential both academically and in his career, an attribute, which the source added, made him more attractive to choice postings.

He is currently a Ph.D. student at the Imo State University where he studies Geography and Information System. This feat followed his similar exploit at the University of Leicester, UK where he bagged an MSC in Security and Risk Management in 2019, 13 years after he had got his first MSC in Geographical Information System from Imo State University.

His hunger for academic excellence had also seen him being awarded a Certificate in Negotiation and Leadership at the prestigious Havard Law School programme on negotiation in addition to a certificate in National and International Security Policy also at Havard Kennedy School for Governance. Besides, he is a fellow, Association of Professional Negotiators and Mediators (APNM), Abuja.

Before his current office, he was in charge of Border Patrol Force, he had equally served as the AIG for Zone 8, comprising Kogi, Ekiti, and Kwara State Commands. He was also the Commissioner of Police, General Investigation at the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department, (FCIID) Annex, Alagbon, Lagos; CP, Adamawa State Command, CP Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department, Abuja and CP, Administration at the Department of Research and Planning in the Force Headquarters, Abuja.

Aside from his profile, another thing that is working in his favour is the wish and subtle call by the police for a young IGP, who has more years in his career to set and implement the 21st Century agenda. Unlike his contenders, whose retirements are alarmingly knocking on their doors, Jitoboh has another nine years and required energy to drive and consolidate the gains recorded by Adamu who is regarded by a group of officers as “Mr. Turn Around of Nigeria Police”.

“IGP Adamu has done his best, let’s look for somebody who would take it from there. That Bayelsa officer fits in perfectly. He seems to have what it takes to continue the good work of Adamu,” a retired commissioner of police, who declined his name in print, said.

His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, has over the years, taken pragmatic steps to address the gaps in the Nigeria police that have undermined its potential to emerge as a leading police institution in the world. The President has, very recently, signed the Police Act, 2020, into law. The ACT aims to reposition the Nigerian Police to overcome the challenges of policing in the 21st century. Mr. President has also authorized the annual employment of at least Ten Thousand Nigerians as Police officers to address manpower gaps, instituted a Retirees Resettlement Support Scheme, and has established the Police Trust Fund to address challenges with infrastructure and police welfare.

With the President’s clear focus on rebuilding the Nigeria Police into a global model, Nigerians are confident that the choice of who succeeds the incumbent IG will follow from the President’s robust vision for the Nigeria Police.

NAVIGATING THE NEXUS OF TRADITION AND TECHNOLOGY: MUSTAFA RAJAB’S JOURNEY AT GULFOOD 2024

In the heart of the bustling metropolis of Dubai, amidst the gleaming skyscrapers and the shimmering desert sun, lies the World Trade Center, a beacon of commerce and innovation. Here, in February 2024, the world’s most prominent figures in the food industry converged for the prestigious Gulfood Exhibition, an event that sets the stage for the future of global gastronomy.

Among the myriad of attendees, one figure stood out: Mustafa Rajab, the Chief Operating Officer of a prominent trading company specializing in export strategies. With a keen eye for innovation and a dedication to quality, Mustafa embarked on a journey to navigate the intricate balance between tradition and technology in the realm of international commerce.

In an era where virtual meetings and online communication dominate the landscape, Mustafa found himself at the center of a debate: is physical face-to-face interaction still necessary in a world driven by digital connectivity?

“Some people argue that physical face-to-face interaction is no longer needed in this vast technological revolution of online meeting applications,” Mustafa reflects, “while others still believe that it is essential to conduct in-person communication in order to reach mutual understanding conceptually and practically.”

For Mustafa, the answer was clear. “I would strongly support the fact of meeting people in person to achieve the desirable outcomes,” he asserts.

And so, armed with this conviction, Mustafa dove headfirst into the whirlwind of Gulfood 2024. Amidst the vibrant displays of culinary craftsmanship and the hum of animated conversations, he sought out both existing clients and potential prospects, eager to forge connections and explore new opportunities.

“I have conducted several quality meetings and discovered more information about the international market needs,” Mustafa shares. “I had the chance to promote new value-added products, considering the market specifications requirement in terms of quality, logistics, and delivery aspects.”

Despite the grueling pace of the exhibition, Mustafa’s enthusiasm remained undiminished. “Despite the fact that I was exhausted during the fair, I was, nevertheless, happy with my sales execution and the new potential clientele achievements,” he admits with a smile.

For Mustafa, Gulfood was more than just a trade show; it was a testament to the enduring power of personal connection in an increasingly digital world. “It has always been a wonderful journey at Gulfood,” he concludes, “and I look forward to many more opportunities to bridge the gap between tradition and technology in the realm of international trade.”

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele is known for prophecies and philanthropy but on a large scale, his prophecies have been saving the lives of Nigerians and other people in the world.

As it is known, Primate Ayodele is fond of prophesying ahead of time, his prophecies are mostly warnings and in cases where the recipients refuse to listen, they end up suffering dire consequences and when they listen, they prevent whatever was supposed to happen.

For instance, Primate Ayodele has been releasing prophecies concerning the activities of terrorists in Nigeria and all of these prophecies have been coming to pass. In his 2024 prophecies, he revealed that kidnapping would take a new dimension in the country especially in Abuja, this was accurately fulfilled with the daily kidnap attacks in the federal capital territory till security operatives decided to take it seriously.

In the education sector too, Primate Ayodele warned security agencies to secure Nigerian schools as he saw several kidnap attacks happening in the sector. To fulfill this prophecy, scores of students were kidnapped in Kaduna and Sokoto in March 2024 and although most of them have been released now, the incident underscores the importance of Primate Ayodele’s prophecies in the country.

Interestingly, Primate Ayodele’s prophecy regarding the health sector in Nigeria has just saved the lives of several Nigerians that would have fallen victim to adulterated and toxic substances innocently.

In March, the prophet alerted the health sector in the country to be careful against confusion that will make them run helter-skelter. He continued by calling on NAFDAC to be on the lookout as he foresaw fake cough syrup being imported into Nigeria.

These were his words:

“The health sector must be fortified against attacks, I am seeing confusion in the sector, let them pray against situations that will make them run helter-skelter.”

“I also see fake cough syrup imported into the country, let NAFDAC be on the lookout to prevent the death of infants in our country.”

Barely one month later, The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control has recalled Benylin Paediatrics Syrup manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, following recent toxicity findings in the laboratory on the product.

NAFDAC said laboratory analysis conducted on the product showed that it contained an unacceptably high level of Diethylene glycol and was found to cause acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals.

NAFDAC said it had directed the marketing authorisation holder of Benylin Paediatric syrup (Johnson and Johnson company, West Africa) to initiate the recall of the batch and the notice will also be uploaded to the WHO Global Surveillance and Monitoring System.

“Benylin Paediatric syrup is indicated for the relief of cough and its congestive symptoms and for the treatment of hay fever and other allergic conditions in children aged two to 12 years.
