Despite the worsening insecurity across the country, Nigeria’s inspector general of police Usman Alkali says Nigerians will enjoy better security during his tenure, promising to create a better policing system.

The police chief said this while on a familiarisation tour to the House Committee on Police Affairs in Abuja.

He stated that he would make this possible by providing better leadership to police officers and make their job easy.

He also commended the Ninth House of Representatives for its unwavering support.

“We are grateful for what we have seen so far from the 9th assembly toward a better policing system,” said Mr Alkali as he reiterated his commitment to a better policing system.

He stressed that he would do everything possible to make policing the country easy for officers.

Mr Alkali further noted that he was before the committee to discuss ways and means to make policemen’s job easy and to have a smooth relationship with lawmakers.

He said there was a need for understanding as lawmakers and the police were working towards providing Nigerians better security.

Bello Kumo, chairman of the House Committee on Police Affairs, said the Ninth Assembly was committed to giving Nigerians the best police.

He said, “It is pertinent for all of us to get together and look for a better idea on how to police the country. The task ahead is herculean.”

He stated that the familiarisation was to partner the police to move the Nigeria Police Force forward and ensure a smooth working relationship.
