Acting IGP seeks NPTF intervention for improved workforce
The Acting Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali, has told the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund (NPTF), Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto, that the high command was looking forward to a swift intervention to boost policing duties across the country.
He added that the police management desired interventions in the area of improved logistics, enhanced welfare for police personnel in terms of rehabilitation of police buildings, and critical training of all police personnel to meet up with emerging security challenges.
He also stressed the need for the rehabilitation of dilapidated police barracks as well as building new befitting accommodation for personnel across the nation.
Baba made the request during the visit of the administrative management team of the NPTF to his office in Abuja on Tuesday. Baba, however, lauded the composition of members of NPTF’s board.
“The chairman and other members of the board are persons of integrity; tested and trusted,” he said.
The leader of the delegation and Executive Secretary of the Trust Fund, Aliyu Sokoto, assured the IGP and members of the police management team of its readiness to work with the NPF for the common good of the nation.
He said that: “The fund is ready to build a well-equipped and well-motivated Nigeria Police Force that would be prompt and responsive to security challenges in line with global standards and best practices.”
