Nigeria Police Force spokesperson, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi has issued a statement after a policewoman was seen carrying a VIP’s bag at a recent political rally of Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
While the identity of the VIP who owns the bag is still unclear, the force spokesperson said he would rather blame officers who descend so low to run errands and not the VIPs themselves.
Adejobi who noted that VIP is a civilian who knows little or nothing about the Standard Operating Procedure of the police, stated that the police authorities won’t spare any ”recalcitrant and disobedient personnel who desecrate its standards, norms of ethics. ”
I dont always like to blame any VIP for sending his security aides “dirty” errands, or misused his sec aides, but the officers themselves who descend so low to do so. That VIP is a civilian, he knows little or nothing about the Standard Operating Procedure of the police or any agency. I always canvass for punishing the aide for his misdeeds and unprofessional conducts not to blame or condemn the VIP.
Send me a dirty job, i reject. Ask me to carry bag, i reject. So, the police wont spare any recalcitrant and disobedient personnel who dent the image or desecrate the Standards, norms, and ethics of the Police. Many of our personnel who have been found wanting have been dealt with accordingly. Its departmental, and actions have been taken on several occasions.
We will continue to do every possible to restore the glory, Standard and values of the NPF in Nigeria. The IGP has taken the bull by the horn, and its achievable.
