A member representing Gwer East/Gwer West Federal Constituency of Benue State in the Federal House of Representatives, Asema Achado, has pledged to enhance the working condition of police personnel in the constituency to boost their morale.

Mr Achado made the pledge when he handed over the reconstructed Aliade Divisional Police Headquarters and personnel quarters, on Saturday in Gwer-East Local Government Area.

He said, “This initiative stems from my firm belief that a conducive working environment fosters the morale of officers, thereby bolstering their capacity to combat criminal activities and mitigate the prevailing insecurity in the local government area.’’

He said law enforcement agencies play critical roles in safeguarding the country and needed a good working environment to operate effectively.

Mr Achado recalled that the police division and personnel quarters were in a dilapidated state and he had to lobby the Federal Government through the Nigeria Police Force to award the contract.

He urged local authorities and the Benue Government to provide infrastructure, vehicles and other logistics for the police and other security agencies to be more clinical in the discharge of their responsibilities.

An official of the Federal Housing Authority, Dr Mathias Byuan, said the Federal Government made adequate provision for the building of affordable houses for Nigerians.

He also said President Bola Tinubu was committed to providing enough funds to security formations to enhance Nigeria’s internal and external defence systems.
