Abdul Hamid: I only knew Acryl Sani will be my successor on Friday (April 30) morning

KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador only knew about Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani receiving his appointment letter as his successor a few hours before the ceremony.

The outgoing Inspector-General of Police said Acryl Sani informed him of being invited for the ceremony on Friday morning (April 30).

"I congratulated him. I would have thought it could be done on Monday a day prior to my contract expiring. Thank God, all went well. Who knows, someone might have ‘potong jalan’ (cut in)," he told his last press conference on Friday.

Abdul Hamid said he was ready to retire and focused on farming.

"I am ready to hand over the reins to my successor. I hope he will continue with the good work that has been done for the past two years," he said.

Acryl Sani received his letter of appointment as IGP, effective May 4, from Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.
