Muhammadu on Friday disclosed he approved the recruitment of 10, 000 officers into the Police , NPF.

The president also approved the re-adjustment of emoluments for the police force.

Buhari says the recent moves are geared towards bequeathing Nigeria a modernized and motivated Police Force with virtues of professionalism, respect for the rule of law, due process and best international practices in their operations

He spoke at the commissioning of operational vehicles and other assets, at the Police Headquarters in Abuja and was contained in a statement signed and sent to DAILY POST by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina.

“It is in cognisance of this that I approved the re-adjustment of Police emoluments as well as the recruitment of ten thousand (10,000) extra police personnel on an annual basis to motivate and enhance the manpower of the Force. It is also in this regard that I assented to the Police Trust Fund Bill to act as a public-private funding framework that will address funding shortages for the Police on a sustainable basis.”

Buhari, who acknowledged the funding challenge facing the Force, pledged that the Federal Government will continue to enhance funding as well as towards meeting manpower requirements and welfare needs of the Force.

He stated that the full commencement of the “Nigeria Police Trust Fund will further assist in meeting the operational and logistics requirements of the Force,” adding that to “give immediate effect to the Police Trust Fund Act, I have directed the Minister of Police Affairs to fast track the process of its take-off.”

Notwithstanding the achievements so far recorded by the Force, Buhari charged its leadership to “avoid complacency in the efforts towards ridding the country of crimes.”

He enjoined the leadership of the Force “to continue to give new orientation to officers of the Force such that they can appreciate the virtues of policing with civility and within the dictates of the law and ensure that the institution regains its position of confidence and respect from Nigerians.”

The President said that officers and other personnel of the Police must take cognisance of the fact that, in the discharge of their duties, they will not only be judged by the number of crimes they have stopped or the number of convictions they have secured, but also the extent to which the process of achieving their statutory mandate conforms to professional and legal standards.”

Stressing that security of lives and property of Nigerians is a constitutional obligation, President Buhari said the “Police is central to the process of meeting this obligation,” adding that “It is for this reason that I have always prioritized the Police as a critical agency in the internal security architecture of the country.”

Commending the leadership of the Police for keying into his administration’s Next Level agenda in relation to strengthening institutional capacity towards addressing internal security challenges, the President noted the reforms being undertaken by the Inspector-General of Police “as well as strategies that he has put in place in guaranteeing the efficiency of the Force.”

NCDC reveals why Nigeria’s COVID-19 cases are low




The Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has disclosed that the low number of the COVID-19 cases in the country is due to the lesser amount of samples collected across the states.

Chikwe Ihekweazu, NCDC Director-General, stated this during the Presidential Task briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday.

Ihekweazu, who was represented by Mrs. Elsie Ilori, NCDC Head of Surveillance and Epidemiology Department, stated that the testing labs were underutilized because the states were not collecting enough samples for the laboratory to test.

“As mentioned earlier since the Sallah break we have had some of our confirmed cases have been very low compared to what we’ll be having before, but this isn’t because the numbers are getting low but because we are not collecting enough samples.

“If you notice, the number of samples collected during Salah was very low, and we believe it was because of the festival season some labs even went on break, it should not have been.

“So we are working with the states to quickly address this so that we do not have this kind of situation again,” he said.

According to the Ihekweazu, we sometimes know when we look at stigmatization, people say they do not want to go to testing sites because they’ll be stigmatized.

“But I mean, this isn’t something to be ashamed of, we have just had an example amongst us, it can happen to anybody.

So, please let us come out and be tested.”
