The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Solomon Arase has said that men of the police force need the presence of God to effectively perform carry out the task they’ve been assigned.
Arase made the disclosure while he spoke in Abuja on Sunday, March 27, during a thanksgiving service held to mark the 11th biennial police games and week at the National Christian Centre. He explained that the strenuous and difficult nature of their job makes the presence of God an important factor.
According to the police chief, “the spiritual upliftment of police officers is very important because it is God that puts in vision in our minds and being police officers, our job is so strenuous and difficult. So, we need the presence of God to be able to guide the citizens right.” “If you are a banker and you make an error, you lose money, but as a police officer, if you make an error, you lose lives and you know that is very critical.
We police officers must be very prayerful and close to God so that our decisions and the things that we use in pushing up our men are such that are not fatal to their lives,” the police boss stressed. Meanwhile, the director, gender and legal aid, Women Advocate Research and Documentation (WARDC), Grace Ketefe has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to look into the recent report regarding the procurement of foreign dogs by the NPF worth about N600 million.
Ms Ketefe stressed that the procurement exercise was a major contradiction to the government’s policy of looking inwards in this period of economic crisis
