Abuja – President Goodluck Jonathan said on Thursday the Federal Government would continue to provide necessary support for  improved efficiency and welfare of the Nigeria Police.

Jonathan gave the assurance when he inaugurated 80 units of 4-bedroom flats built by the Nigeria Police at Lugbe, Abuja.

Represented by Vice-President Namadi Sambo, Jonathan said the project signified the government’s determination to provide an environment conducive for officers and men of the Police.

“This event is significant in several ways.

“It showcases the resolve of government to provide an environment conducive for officers and men of the Police to feel comfortable and relaxed in performing their statutory duty of safeguarding the lives and property of Nigerians.

“We shall continue to provide necessary support infrastructure aimed at improving efficiency and welfare of the Police Force.’’

The President commended the Nigeria Police for its giant strides in addressing the deficit in the nation’s housing sector in line with the Transformation Agenda of the present administration.

He also commended the Inspector-General of Police and his team for the successful completion of the project.

According to the President, it goes a long way to demonstrate the resolve and desire of the Inspector-General of Police for a modern and well-motivated Police.

“This laudable achievement would go a long way in not only motivating the personnel to put in their best but will also  make them more effective and proactive in tackling crime and criminality.’’

He noted with delight that the housing units were built through a Public Private Partnership (PPP).

`This is indeed noteworthy and a demonstration of a strong bond of partnership existing between the police, the public and the private sector.’’

He, however, reiterated the need for proper maintenance of the ‘‘beautiful blocks of flats to ensure that they stand the test of time’’.

He also advised that regular and proper sanitation should be carried out for cleanliness and healthiness of the environment.

Jonathan called on all stakeholders to partner with the authorities of the Nigeria Police in providing an enabling environment for officers and men to attain optimal performance.

Earlier, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Muhammed Abubakar, said the Nigeria Police  would  allocate  the estates across the country to  its interested  personnel on an owner-occupier basis.

‘‘This initiative is capitalised principally by the Nigeria Police Cooperative Society in conjunction with our development partners.

“And it is structured in such a way that completed buildings are delivered in habitable conditions to interested police officers and men.

“Beneficiaries are expected to repay the cost of building through National Housing Fund loans which the Force accesses on their behalf from the Federal Mortgage Bank.’’

Abubakar thanked President Jonathan for his solidarity, understanding and support for the Nigeria Police.

He, however, appealed to the President to assist in mobilising support on behalf of the Nigeria Police for the construction of more houses.

“I make this appeal bearing in mind the dilapidated state of most police barracks across the country and the fact that these owner-occupier facilities cannot take the place of barracks.”

According to him, the acute accommodation problem of the police can be solved only by an aggressive intervention.

The  estate was named after late Inspector Sunday Badang for his gallantry and commitment to duty.

Badang died while trying to diffuse an improvised explosive device in Kaduna on Feb. 14, 2012. He was given a posthumous promotion to the rank of an Inspector.(NAN)

    FG is just being unnecessarily wicked. The problem of Nigeria Police personnel is no other thing than remuneration. Pay them well and they will give you their best, housing is secondary. FG says Nigeria's economy is first in Africa, but I doubt that since it does not reflect in the lives of those protecting and securing it day and night.

    police welfare is indeed a determinant to service delivery....... i have done a serious work on this topic, and the intellectual paper will be out sometime... But from 1999- 2013 the welfare of the police in Nigeria has been poor. Welfare in this regard encapsulates health facilities, insurance, pension scheme, housing, salary, training and re-training etc. my one-on-one interviews with senior officers has provided the research a lot of empirical facts

    The federal government should look into the process of recruitment of all these military and paramilitary personnel to make sure that it's not a channel of settling dropouts or touts in our society. Such recruitment process should not be handled like every other;rather be seriously done under the watchdog's of Presidency or a more trusted security agency be it foreign or local.
