We Won’t Back Down, We’ll Re-Strategize, Says New IGP

191

Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has vowed to restructure the Nigerian Police Force

He made the vow, shortly after he was confirmed as the substantive IGP by the Police Council chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari, at the presidential villa, Abuja.

” What we need to do is just to re-strategize and then face the criminals squarely , he said in response to questions about the rising insecurity in most parts of the country.

” We have to look at our strategy and re-strategize and also look at our personnel to re-organise the way our system is structured, identify the right personnel in the right places to have them do the job. So, it requires re-strategizing for us to be able to dig deep into what is happening in the North West so as to deal with the situation squarely.

“I think the security agencies within the country are capable of dealing with the situation. The IGP said he also briefed council on the security situation in the country and “the efforts we are putting in place or have put in place to address the security challenges. After the presentation, I was confirmed as the IGP.”

The IGP when asked what his appointment meant to the police, he said: “What it means for us that we have been given a though task to make sure that we provide security within the country and make the country crime free, which means that we have re-double our efforts. Whatever strategy we have put in place, we have to look at it, and re-strategize day in, day out to make sure that the insecurity in the country goes down to the barest minimum.”

Adamu described policing as a tough job but assured that the police under him will redouble its efforts make the country crime free and reduce insecurity to the barest minimum in the country.

The Council of State also chaired by President Buhari will rectify his appointment at its next meeting.
