NATIONWIDE STRIKE: IGP Makes Fresh Promise To Policemen | READ DETAILS

Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkall Baba has appealed to Police personnel in the country to jettison their nationwide planned strike.

Baba made this appeal on tour to South West made at the Zone 2 Command comprising Lagos and Ogun State Commands, saying it is a taboo for the police officers to embark on strike.

The IGP, who was represented by Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of South West zone, Mr. Johnson Kokumo, said that the IGP would make sure that all the concerns raised by officers will be adequately met, hence the planned strike was not necessary.

He said that the police has received so much assistance from its management, the Federal Government as well as members of the public, therefore it would amount to disappointment from the force if they go ahead with the planned strike.

“I bring good tidings from the  Inspector- General of Police who has advised us to eschew all forms of unethical practices and  that there should be total conformity to the rule of our engagement. We should be professional in all our dealings as we have rules and regulations guarding us. Let me remind you that strike is prohibited in the force and its consequences are high.

“You should remember the slogan that the police are your friend, so, if you engage in the abuse of the public whose taxes are used to pay your salaries, you should know that they are watching our backs. If we do good the public will commend you. If we do bad, the public will also condemn us.

“You should know that the Bible has given us an automatic ticket to heaven, because it said that the blessed are the peace makers as they will see the kingdom of God. We are peace makers and God recognizes us and peace makers. You should not disappoint the people we are assigned to protect. In that case, you should not go on strike and I believe you know the consequences of going on strike.”

 Enumerating what the police have done for the personnel, he said the president has increased ,”Our salary and emoluments and the actualization is undergoing processes, so, it is not automatic, it has to go through ministerial process. The President has given the order and no one can counter the order, the government has also given us tax relief, so our salaries are not tax.
