Police to recruit 10,000 corps yearly

The Federal Government has approved the recruitment of 10,000 policemen every year to address the shortfall in the numerical capacity of the nation’s police force.

The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, explained that the recruitment was necessary to strengthen the operational efficiency of the police to combat crime and criminality in the country.
He said this during the monthly IG’s conference with senior police officers on Wednesday at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, shortly after receiving inspectors Amina Wilfred and Rachael Danjuma for winning a golf championship.

The IG called for better funding for the police, saying the nation needed to address the poor financial standing of the force for enhanced operational efficiency.

Idris stated, “We can succeed in community policing when we address the ratio of one policeman to 400 citizens. Recruitment of rank and file had been stopped and there is no where you can have an effective police if you don’t have enough policemen to police the population and that is one of the areas we are addressing now.”

The IG called on the National Assembly to speedily pass the Security Trust Fund Bill to ensure adequate funding of police operations.

Idris expressed concern with the increasing spate of kidnapping across the country, stressing that it was beyond what the police alone could handle.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
