29 May 2015, 08:30Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has on behalf of the entire officers of the Nigeria Police Force, felicitated with the Government and people of the country, as the nation marks its 16th year of democracy.

Emmanuel Ojukwu, Force Public Relations Officer, writing from the Force Headquarters Abuja, the IGP also salutes the courage and gallantry of officers of the Force, in protecting the nation’s thriving democracy.

“The IGP charges Police personnel to continue to subordinate themselves to civil authority and give maximum respect to the fundamental rights of the citizenry,” Ojukwu said.

The IGP advises officers to remain politically neutral and steer clear of partisan politics in line with the professional ethics of the Force.

He warns that officers found meddling in local politics within or outside their areas of jurisdiction would be appropriately sanctioned.

He pledged unalloyed loyalty of the Nigeria Police Force to the Government and people of Nigeria and promises that the Force would continue to do everything within its power and available resources, including partnering with relevant stakeholders, to effectively discharge its constitutional and statutory responsibilities of securing lives and property of Nigerians, even in the face of current security challenges and the huge price involved.

The police leader restated the commitment of the current police administration to reposition the Force for greater efficiency and called for the cooperation of all citizens in these regards.
