As the police authorities work towards community policing, Nigeria’s police boss has added a fillip.
Since there are good men and beautiful women in the Nigerian police force, IGP Baba Alkali wants them to hit it off.
It has its own plus.
The IG gave the counsel during his one-day working visit to the Niger State Police Command in Minna
According to him, there is no point for Nigerian cops looking for spouses elsewhere.
“We have some handsome single men and beautiful ladies among us. I would like to advise us to start taking our wives and husbands from our colleagues to buttress our already existing working relationship to that of full family affairs,” he said.
“By doing so, the good working relationship existing among the personnel will go just beyond the normal office relationship and will help in the improvement of confidence and harmonious relationship.”
He pointed out that love is a booster—of courage and strength for policing.
“I think it will be a welcome idea if we start looking inwards to see how we can build a better family here than going outside looking for a good wife.”
