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.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
