President Muhammadu Buhari is seeking the replacement of the Inspector General of Police Solomon Arase less than a week to the end of his tenure.

The acting IGP will be 60 years old on June 21, Tuesday, the obligatory age of retirement from service.

President Buhari is reportedly under pressure from about three different interests according to a source.

Those who are seeking to replace Arase now spend more time in Abuja pressuring on some powerful forces in and outside the government.

According to the source, Buhari seeks a very competent successor to Arase who, many consider, would have achieved a lot, at the end of his tenure.

He said: “It is true that there are about three interests making separate cases for their preferred choices, who have showed good operational capabilities to lead the NPF.

“Out of the groups, one is pushing for the appointment of a very competent CP, while the other two are making cases for two AIGs.

“But, I think the president knows what he wants, and as an upright, disciplined and firm man, he will get the best.”
