 FG to Recruit additional 155,ooo police-- Inspector Gen of Police

Ibrahim Idris, Inspector General of Police (IGP) has called on the Federal Government to recruit additional 31,000 policemen annually over the next five years, to ensure effective policing across the country.

Idris said this on Friday in a message to the graduation of constables at the Police College, Kaduna, that by providing additional 155,000 policemen over the next five years, Nigeria would meet the UN policing ratio of 1:400 persons.

He said currently the Police is operating at a ratio of one to 600, which he described has far below the approved United Nations ratio.

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the recruitment of 10, 000 policemen in 2016 to boost the working capacity of the force.

The police chief, who was represented by DIG Maiagari Dikko, charged the constables to be upright, shun all temptations and intimidation and work diligently to serve the country better.

He reminded the Officers that protection of lives and property of the citizenry, enforcement of all laws and regulations and prevention of crime is paramount to police.

He urged them that when faced with situation requesting them to compromise the rule of law for either financial or material benefit, they should not succumb.


The IGP said: “Ensure that your actions are in line with the extant rules and regulations and that which you can defend at all times.

You may be victimised for sticking to the truth but be consoled in the fact that truth is constant and always prevail, no matter how long it may take.”

He stressed that the force has zero tolerance for corruption and would deal decisively with any officer found wanting

The IGP added that the police would stick to its core duties in line with international values of policing with integrity and respect for the rule of law.

“We shall respect diversity, display courage, show compassion and demonstrate professionalism, and operate within the principles of democratic policing.

“We shall make Nigeria safer and secured and shun corruption.”

Idris also assured policemen of getting more opportunities for training and retraining to enhance their capacity for effective service delivery.

Reports say 7, 560 constables graduated from various police training schools nationwide.
