President Muhammadu Buhari has approved salary increment for officers of the Nigeria Police Force.
According to Daily Post the increment cuts across all ranks of the force.
This was disclosed by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Thursday during his visit to the Ogun State Police Command.
Adamu’s visit to Ogun State was aimed at boosting the morale of police officers after the attack on them during the recent End SARS protest.
Adamu while addressing officers of the command, urged them not to be demoralised by the attacks suffered during the protest.
He further charged them not to be afraid of carrying out their duties following the attacks against them, saying no society survives without the police.
Adamu revealed that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has taken various steps to reform the Nigerian police.
According to him, “The government has approved an extension of health scheme to retired police personnel. The police salary structure has been reviewed upward, affecting all ranks.”
He also said that plans have been made for the renovation of police barracks across the nation.
In his words, the State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, said the IGP’s visit would re-awaken the dampened morale of the police officers in the state.
Ajogun disclosed that, about seven divisional headquarters were vandalized in the state, while the DCO of Atan-Ota division, DSP Ogbeche, lost his life.
