The Nigeria blogosphere is replete with a huge gamut of literature, both positive and some negative about the pedigree and person of Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari ,the debonair, yet astute Super Cop, who runs the quite effective and efficient security apparatus under the office of the Inspector General of Police called The Intelligence Response Team (IGP -IRT).
When Dr. Solomon Arase Esq., (Who in my estimation is perhaps the best Inspector General of Police ,Nigeria has ever had ) set up the IRT ,it was due to the absence of a ready strike force to respond to the many intelligence reports (IRs),that are churned out by the very extensive intelligence network of Nigerian Police
The House of Representatives on resumption from its two-month recess is expected to commence debate on the general principles of a bill which seeks to prohibit defection of President and Vice President, Governor and Deputy Governor from the party through which they were elected into office.

Kwewum Shawulu seeks to alter Sections 144(10) and 189(1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) with a view to check incidents of defections, that is cross carpetings, or abandoning the political party that sponsored a President, Vice President, Governor or Deputy Governor (as the case may be) for another political party, in the absence of a merger of political parties; division or factions within the sponsoring political party.
Last week at the Supreme Court, the minority judgment in the Eyitayo Jegede (PDP) versus Rotimi Akeredolu (APC) Ondo State governorship appeal opened the APC crisis.
Three justices, led by Justice Mary Odili, submitted that it is illegal for a sitting governor to hold another office simultaneously, citing Section 180 of the 1999 Constitution.
Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni is the APC Caretaker national chairman.

PSC also approved Alkali’s recommendation for the suspension of the DCP pending the outcome of the probe. The suspension commenced on Saturday.
