By Kingsley Okoro (Crime/Police Affairs Reporter)

The Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, has charged Commanders of the seventy-nine (79) Police Mobile Force (PMF) Squadrons across the nation to exhibit high-level professionalism, neutrality and embrace a citizen-friendly approach in policing the forthcoming Gubernatorial elections in Edo and Ondo states.

The governorship elections have been slated for September 19th for Edo state and October 10th 2020 for Ondo state respectively.

The Police boss gave the charge during a conference with the commanders held at the Force Headquarters, Abuja on monday September 7, 2020. The conference centered on the deployment of the PMF for the elections and general review of the current internal security threats in the country. It availed the Force leadership the opportunity to further re-strategize on best approaches on mitigating security threats particularly as contained in the Election Security Threat Assessment Reports.

The IGP noted that the PMF which has remained at the forefront of tactical operations in the country, is central to the operational plans of the Force towards a successful election in the two States. The Inspector General who observed that the elections are coming on the heels of the just concluded PMF Commanders’ course held at Ende Hills, Nasarawa State, charged the officers to take advantage of the new insights and experiences drawn from the training to positively impact their leadership roles in the elections and beyond.

Meanwhile, the IGP has assured the residents of Edo and Ondo States of the full preparedness of the Nigeria Police Force in conjunction with other security agencies and other critical stakeholders in the elections, to ensure the success of the forthcoming elections in the two States. NNL.
