Police To Recruit 31,000 Officers Yearly, Says Igp


The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris yesterday said that the police force under his administration will recruits 31,000 officers yearly for the next five years to effectively fight crimes in the country.

Idris said the exercise would enable the agency to meet up with the United Nations (UN) standard of one policeman per four persons in every part of the country.
The IG gave the hint at the commissioning of the new Nasarawa State police command headquarters on Shendam Road, Lafia.

Nigeria Police Force is operating far below the United Nations standard of policing and in view of this, we are working towards recruiting 31,000 police every year in the next five years.
“Even at that, we need government’s and the people’s cooperation to effectively fight crime to a very low level. The press must join us to publicize our idea in crime fight,” he stated.
Speaking, Governor Umaru Tanko Almakura called on the IGP to raise the standard requirement in the recruitment of candidates to certain level above what it is presently.
He also urged the police force to facilitate capacity building to handle the increasing crimes in the society and the new trend of criminal advancement.
The state commissioner of Police, Sediq Abubarkar, in his welcome address, thanked Almakura for building the new office for effective operation of officers.
