The new Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has said that he will do everything in his power to deliver quality service to Nigerians.

Idris also said he will display accountability and integrity in the discharge of his duties.

Daily Post reports that the police boss said "That is the issue of integrity and accountability, issue of respect for diversity, issue of compassion, issues of ensuring that our streets, our neighbourhoods, our communities remain safe.

“We are going to do everything possible to ensure that we provide the best service to this country.”

The outgoing police IG, Solomon Arase, also called on Nigerians to support the new police boss.

Arase also said “I want to formally introduce my successor, AIG Idris Kpotum, he is going to be in acting capacity until confirmation from the police council.

“I want to cease this opportunity to thank Nigerians for the cooperation given me ‎while I serve as inspector-general of police, by extension I want to also appeal to you to give the same support that you gave to me to my successor.

“He is a younger man so I am sure he will be abreast with the contemporary policing issues.”

Ibrahim Idris was appointed by President Buhari as the new police boss following the retirement of former IG, Solomon Arase.
