Elections 2015: Security expert lauds police over security in Osun


ElectionA security expert in Osun, Alhaji Hassan Hussein, has commended the Police for the professionalism they showed during the last Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Hussein, a retired police officer and head of a vigilance group, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview in Osogbo that the conduct of the police was unprecedented.

According to him, the Nigeria Police has “really come of age as a desirable institution in a democratic setting”.

“It is very clear that we are developing our institutions as a democratic nation; the police is one of the institutions that have really advanced rapidly with time.

“Obviously, the degree of professional acumen exhibited by the force on Saturday clearly showed that Nigeria can rely on the police as an agent of democracy.

“I urge the Inspector-General of Police to sustain the tempo even after the results of the elections have been declared, so as to avert any form of post-election violence,” he said.

    The best Police outing in any election in our system. And trust me, I have seen them all. Credit goes to the IGP, his men and the People for showcasing polling maturity. We look ahead with infectious optimism. Focus, believe in our goals and they will all come to be achieved.
