Buhari approves Salary Increase for Police Officers



Buhari approves Salary Increase for Police Officers | BellaNaija

Police officers in the country will begin to enjoy an increase in their salaries as President Muhammadu Buhari has approved a new salary structure.

The Cable reports that this was revealed in a statement released by the presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu.

The president said he was pleased to make the increase as it will strengthen the internal security of Nigeria.

The statement read:

From Taraba to Sokoto, to the south-south, people don’t feel secure until they see the military.

I am pleased to make the increase in salary and allowances in the hope that it will increase the performance index of the police and strengthen Nigeria’s internal security system.

The military should be reserved for higher tasks. The police should be able to cope well with the challenges of armed robbery, kidnapping for ransom and such crimes.

In every town and village, there is the presence of the police. From all these places, they should be able to forward first class intelligence to you on which to act.

There is a need to amplify the question of more men of the police, especially given the condition we are in – emergency in the north-east, pervasive insecurity and abduction for ransom and banditry in many parts of the country.

    Crude bribe! SMH

    If you really want to improve the police and it’s performance, improve training and educational standards as well as conditions of service (including accommodation, healthcare and life insurance), in conjunction with paying a living wage. Meanwhile, every police officer and recruit should be conversant with the relevant provisions of the Constitution and Administration of Justice Act, before being given a firearm.

    Mr Buhari, the Chief corruption fighter…even a baby in the womb will know that this act of yours is a broad daylight act of bribery to the police force to gear them up for your plans to force your way back to power in 2019 but GOD IS WATCHING YOU because it will not work. Arrant Nonsense
