The Inspector General of Police, Idris Kpotum is currently facing criticism over a recent video showing him struggling to read a speech at an event in Kano recently.
In the viral video, the IG, who visited Kano on Monday to commission the Police Technical Intelligence unit in the State stammered severally as he struggled to pronounce his words. After failed attempts to get his speech right, the IGP, apologised to his audience.
A lot of Nigerians reacted to viral video on twitter. See the reactions below;
@ArchieWonda, ”I feel really embarrassed and ashamed right now. How did this man get to be the IGP? Is this the same man Buhari retired his seniors in the force so he can make IGP? This is really hard to believe. Nigerians, see your the head of your force.”
@ahmadugombe ”The Nigeria Police Force should declare Mr. Transmission wanted for causing so much apprehension to our comprehension. As we say in Africa, between his village elders and Dino’s kinsmen, the IGP has offended some people.”
@YemieFASH SHAMEFUL: ”Kindly watch the almighty Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris as he disgraces himself and his entire community. Is this the man said to have a degree in law?”
@jacksonpbn, ”President has no WASCE, IGP cannot read, anti-corruption adviser forged WAEC, Cabinet clueless, Cronies all thieves. Citizens aloof, uninformed. What a country!”
@Chxta, ”Different kids have different needs, but here we only think of bright kids, and olodo. That mentality is what is propelling the derision to an IGP that is more likely dyslexic. Focus people. His real sin isn’t dyslexia, it’s insubordination to the National Assembly.”
