Newly appointed Inspector General of Police, Muhammad Adamu, has assured Nigerians that he would work hand-in-hand with his fellow police officers and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure a hitch-free 2019 general elections.
Adamu made this known on Wednesday in Abuja during the handover ceremony that saw him replaced former Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
He lauded his predecessor for the achievements he garnered while in the office and promised to meet up with the task and standard set aside for him.
“I will provide the highest possible level of professional and responsible leadership to you, while trusting that you shall march hand-in-hand with me as professional colleagues,” he said.
“On our part, we assure the nation of our determination to play our roles fairly but firmly toward guaranteeing peaceful electoral process.
“We shall not hesitate to deploy our potent asset to deal firmly and decisively with electoral deviants.
“With your support, I am confident that we have the operational capacity to ensure the success of the elections,” he said.
