Reno Omokri, reacting to a viral video of IGP,Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read a speech in Kano said IGP Idris ignored senate summons due to his inability to read and understand English language.

In the viral video, IGP who visited Kano on Monday to commission the Police Technical Intelligence unit in the State stammered severally as he struggled to pronounce his words.

Reacting, Reno Omokri on his Twitter page said IGP Idris is not qualified for his position, noting that his deficiency led to the deterioration of the Nigerian Police Force and leading the country to its present state, with increase in the rate of killings all across the federation.

“Now we know the real reason why the Inspector General of Police failed to honour the @NGRSenate summons.

“The poor man didn’t want to expose his inability to read and understand in the English language. IGP who cant read a speech and President who thinks West Germany still exists!

“Other than being the Kano Commissioner of Police that delivered the incredible 2015 elections results where Buhari got 1,903,999, what are Ibrahim Kpotum Idris’ qualifications for the job of Inspector General of Police when he finds it challenging reading & understanding English?

“The case of IGP Ibrahim Kpotum Idris is a lesson on why a Commissioner of Police should not be promoted over more capable seniors and made Inspector General of Police. He is obviously unqualified for the job. It‘s this type of nepotism that has brought Nigeria to this sorry level,” Omokri wrote.

The video of the IGP had circulated across social media yesterday and he could be seen finding it difficult to make out words from the speech he was delivering at an event in Kano State.
