Governor Nasir El-Ruai of Kaduna State on Friday hailed the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on the on-going investigation into recent criminal activities in the state, saying the IGP was doing an excellent job.
Mr El-Rufai made the commendation at the 11th annual Ramadan Lecture organised by the Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, in his hometown, Oro, Kwara State.
The governor, who said he was at the programme because he could not meet up with last year’s invitation, commended the guest lecturer, Raheemson Olawale for delivering a touchy lecture.

He prayed that God should favour President Buhari with good health as he leads the country.
Also speaking, the minister praised el-Rufai as he described him as a detribalised Nigerian that believes in merit rather than tribal or religious sentiment.
The minister also said that religious harmony brings peace and development into any community all over the world, adding that competence, capacity and merit should matter and not tribal sentiment.
Mr Mohammed, said that despite the fact that 70 percent of traditional rulers in Oro community are Christians, they attended the lecture together with their Muslim colleagues.
