Ibadan Makes Case for Indigenes As Commissioner In Police Service Commission


The Ibadan Compound Peace Initiative (ICPI), comprises of monarchs, Chiefs, Mogajis and prominent indigenes of Ibadanland on Wednesday urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to consider Ibadan indigenes as Commissioners into Police Service Commission (PSC).

They said Ibadan has suitable, qualify and capable personalities who are indigenes of the Ibadanland that can be appointed to the post.

A statement jointly signed by ICPI chairman, Barr. Chief Niyi Ajewole, President, Association of Ibadan Mogajis, Mogaji Asimiyu Ariori and ICPI Coordinator, Mogaji Nurudeen Akinade stated that Ibadan deserves a slot out of four PSC Commissioners slots, saying Ibadan has many reputable retired Justices who will perform excellently in the position if appointed.

According to the statement, Oyo State gave President Bola Ahmed Tinubu highest number of votes during the last Presidential election, which Ibadan has over 60 percent of the total votes from the state, hence, the need for Tinubu to repay Ibadan back with the gesture.

“Firstly, we want to thank our amiable President Tinubu for appointing Bayo Adelabu as Minister, we are like Oliver twist, we request for more inclusion in your government sir, some states has between two to three Ministers, but Oyo state only has one, we urged you to consider Ibadan for one of the slots for this PSC Commissioners appointment.

“We appeal to President Tinubu to include our sons/daughters into this PSC Commissioners appointment, we will be glad if this our humble request is granted.”

The statement however reiterated commitment and support of Ibadan people towards the actualisation of Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda for Nigeria.
