PSC lauds Ugwuanyi over crime drop in Enugu State
Chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC), Musiliu Smith, has applauded Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State for his administration’s support to the police in the state to discharge their duties.
Smith stated that the governor’s supportive role to the police resulted in “a considerable drop in crime rate in the state”, and boost in the morale of officers and men of the force.
The former Inspector General of Police (IGP), who spoke through the Commissioner representing the South South geo-political zone in the Commission, Austin Braimoh, during a courtesy visit to the Government House, Enugu, told Ugwuanyi that “the Police Service Commission has been informed of your generous efforts and assistance.”
He applauded the governor “for accepting to set up operational offices for our zonal operations”, disclosing that it would ensure effective control of community policing in the state.
The governor’s huge investment in security, he noted, made Enugu one of the most secure and peaceful states in the country.
Responding, the governor pledged his administration’s cooperation and support to the commission to discharge its responsibilities “as they relate to Enugu State”.
He expressed hope that the body would, among other positive efforts, ensure the recruitment of sufficient officers that would help to tackle security challenges facing the nation.
“We thank you for deeming it fit to visit us today, affording us the opportunity to interact with you and share thoughts on areas of mutual interest and cooperation,” the governor added.
