The Inspector General of Police, IGP Alkali Usman Baba, has tasked officers and men of the Force to display professionalism in the performance of their duties, shun all forms of corruption, and to be civil to members of the public.
The IGP gave the charge to officers of the Delta State Police Command whom he visited yesterday, 23 August, at the Command headquarters in Asaba, the Delta State capital, and where he had a moral boosting interactive session with officers and men of the command.
TheFact Nigeria reports that the Police Chief, in a power packed lecture with officers of the Command, reiterated the commitment of his administration to do all it can within its powers to boost the moral of the men in terms of better welfare, while assuring that an improved insurance scheme was on top gear.
The IGP also spoke on the need for officers to key into and take advantage of the National Health Insurance scheme (NHIS) to help get better medical care, while also noting that the police will establish specialist hospitals in the six geopolitical zones.
IGP Baba, referring to the slogan he originated, (NEVER AGAIN WILL THE POLICE ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE KILLED, NEVER AGAIN), encouraged officers and men to brace up to face hoodlums squarely, and to be ready to give their best to preserve their lives in order for them to be able to protect the citizens.
The Commissioner of Police, Delta State Command, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, thanked the IGP for his fatherly disposition, love and care for personnel of the state, as well as for the deployment of Mobile Police force personnel for Operation Restore Peace in the State which has brought calm, and has contributed to the successes against crime and criminality in the state.
CP Ali assured the IGP that officers and men of the command will continue to make him proud as they have already fully keyed into his policing strategies.
The IGP was accompanied on the visit by the Force Medical officer CP Olubunmi A. Ogunsanwo, and the Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, CP Frank Mba.
