The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, has reaffirmed his commitment to ensure that police officers, especially members of Inspectorate and rank and file of the Force, are given their well deserved welfare.
The IGP gave this assurance while inaugurating the Board of Directors of Nigeria Police Force Property Development and Construction Company, which took place at IGP’s Conference Room, Force Headquarters, Abuja.
He tasked the board to ensure that the delivery of standardized housing scheme of not more than N4 million for Inspectors and members of rank and file across the nation is achieved in the next six months.
Arase, meanwhile, reiterated that corrupt officers would not benefit from the welfare package.
He also confirmed that 36,000 members of the rank and file of the Force are proceeding on promotion course with effect from June 24, 2015.
The Board is headed by Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Department of Logistics and Supply, Maman Tsafe.
The membership includes three other senior police officers and Managing Director NPF Mortgage Bank Ltd, Pastor Bola Adeboye.
The company chairman in his response promised to leave up to the expectation and further expressed his appreciation for the IGP’s initiative at constituting the Board members.
In another development, IGP Arase yesterday ordered a water tight security for National Hajj Commission of Nigeria during the airlifting of pilgrims for this year’s Hajj operation.
The order came during a courtesy call on IGP in his office by Hajj Commission members led by its Chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Murktar Mohammed.
The chairman of the Hajj Commission who was full of praises for various assistance from the Police on security arrangement for the commission, expressed confidence in the police leadership of the IGP to deliver adequate security for its commission and Nigerians at large.
