Vice president, Yemi Osinbajop has charged the Acting IGP to embark on a mission of restoring the dignity and high repute of the policing profession to win the confidence of the public.
Prof Osinbajo conferred the title of the new Acting Inspector General of Police, on Usman Akali Baba, at the State House in Abuja.
He urged him to be professional in his dealings and eschew all forms of partiality and serve the country diligently to solve the insecurity crises in the country.
He said: “You must stamp out the excesses, abuses, and the culture of impunity illustrated by some elements of the force which provoke public outrage against the institution. the role of law enforcement and in particular that of the Nigeria Police Force as the primary agency charged with maintaining law and order, has never been more important.”
“last year, Mr. President signed the new Police Act, the first police reform legislation to be enacted in almost 50 years.”
” the Buhari administration “stands ready to work with you to reposition the Nigeria Police Force and take it to unprecedented heights of professionalism, competence, and excellence. I, therefore, welcome you as a key partner in this administration’s comprehensive programme of reform aimed at repositioning the NPF as a modern, responsive, and citizen-centered law enforcement service.”
“The Act is the centerpiece of our commitment to reinventing the police as an institution that we can all be proud of. It articulates this administration’s vision of a modern, competent police force as an institution committed to the preservation of human rights and human dignity and the protection of the public against all criminal threats.”
