Mohamad Fuzi is set to retire tomorrow.

The outgoing IGP said the meeting with Comm Abdul Hamid and Bukit Aman Management director Comm Datuk Abd Rahim Jaafar to discuss the matter would be held today.

“The Prime Minister has already announced that Comm Abdul Hamid will be taking over. This has given us enough time to prepare for a smooth transition of power.

“I urge the top brass to continue to give him the same level of support,” he told reporters after launching the PDRM Mess Book in Bukit Aman yesterday.

Mohamad Fuzi said he was confident that all parties would accept the government’s decision to app­oint Comm Abdul Hamid as his successor.

“He is capable of performing his duties and carrying on the legacy and responsibilities to uplift the police force,” he said.

On his retirement, Mohamad Fuzi said he was looking forward to it.On Wednesday, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad confirmed that Comm Abdul Hamid would take charge of the force for two years, starting tomorrow.

In a statement, Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Comm Abdul Hamid was a capable candidate to lead the force.

“The years of experience will guide him as he shoulders this new responsibility,” Muhyiddin said.

Former top cop Tan Sri Musa Hassan said Comm Abdul Hamid’s strictness and integrity would make others fear him.
