Acting-President Yemi Osinbajo has felicitated with former Inspector-General of Police, Alhaji Aliyu Ibrahim Attah, who turned 80 on Friday.

The Acting-President joined family, friends and also professional colleagues of the former Inspector-General of Police in celebrating the milestone,  “preceded by many years of meritorious service to the nation, and humanity.”

According to a statement by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo commended Alhaji Attah for the reforms he brought into the Police Force as he rose through the ranks, culminating in the upgrade of the communication and networking structure of the institution that saw more measured prevention of crimes, speedy response, digital tracking and profiling of criminal suspects.

“As the former Inspector-General of Police becomes an octogenarian, the Acting President recalls that the increase of the Nigerian Police Force in numbers and skill-sets between 1990 and 1993 were largely inspired by Attah, a notable feat of no mean historical relevance,” the statement read in part.

He wished Alhaji Attah longer life, good health and more wisdom to continue to serve the country.
