SPEECH DELIVERED BY THE INSPECTOR-GENERAL OF POLICE, Ag. IGP MUHAMMED ABUBAKAR ADAMU, NPM,mni ON WEDNESDAY, 16TH OF JANUARY, 2019 AT THE NIGERIA POLICE FORCE HEADQUARTERS, ABUJA.

 

It is with total reverence of the Almighty Allah (SWT) and deep appreciation of President Muhammadu Buhari, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who considered me worthy of appointment that I humbly address you today as the 20th indigenous Inspector General of Police. My appointment represents a call to duty and a charge to restore the dwindling primacy of the Nigeria Police Force within the internal security architecture of our beloved country.

 

2. Ladies and gentlemen, commanding the largest Police Force in Africa, particularly, at this crucial time that the country is faced with multi-faceted security challenges and at the peak of preparations for the general elections, is undoubtedly an arduous task. However, it remains a fact that the Force is blessed with some of the finest officers anywhere in the world that are not only intellectually gifted and exceptionally dedicated, but professionally sound enough to surmount these tasks if the right leadership is provided.

 

3. Amongst you seated in this hall today are some of such thorough-bred and passionate professionals who can hold their own among their peers and have consistently distinguished themselves in complex national and international engagements. All that you desire, from my experience, is a transparent, responsive, motivational, accountable, and knowledgeable  leader who will not only treat you with the dignity you deserve in your line of duty, but who is sensitive to your welfare, needs and fair in the manner your promotion and other reward regimes are addressed. The absence of this level of leadership has always been the missing link in policing in Nigeria. Read more

The aim of the information is not to cause alarm or anxiety but to provide general security advice

Wanted Persons

No one wants to think that there are wanted criminals living near them-maybe even right next door but the fact of the matter is that these men and women hide out wherever they can, often disguising themselves as responsible citizens in normal communities.

Of course, one of the easiest ways to help police find wanted criminals is simply keeping your eyes open and reporting tips to the nearest police station.
