The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, on Tuesday said that no Nigerian would suffer injustice by his inaction or action throughout his tenure in office.

Arase, who spoke to State House correspondents in Abuja shortly after his confirmation as substantive Inspector-General of Police, also reassured officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force that their welfare would be one of his cardinal responsibilities.

“Their welfare will be number one on ‎my cardinal responsibilities. You don’t motivate a workforce except their welfare is paramount. I’m going to ensure that their welfare is going to be put on the front burner.

“To Nigerians, I know that their expectations are high but I can assure them that no Nigerian will suffer any injustice by my inaction or action,” he said.

On his recent directive on the dismantling of police roadblocks across the country, Arase said 16 teams had been constituted by the Force Headquarters to ensure strict compliance.

“We already have an enforcement policy in place and 16 teams have moved out across the length and breadth of this country to ensure there is strict compliance to that order,” he said. (NAN)
