The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris has said the recruitment of 10,000 applicants into the police will be based on local government quota to ensure equal representation at the grassroot across the cadres of the force.

The IGP said “this is in line with the principle of democratic policing which provides that the police should have equal representative of the community it serves”

The Police Chief stated this in his presentation titled “Roadmap for Sustainable Policing by The Nigeria Police Force” while speaking as the Guest speaker During the Alumni Association of the National Institute which held in Abuja on Thursday, November 3, 2016.

According to him” Nigeria as a country has an estimated population of 182,000,000 with a police strength of about 338, 490. The United Nation recommended Ratio of policeman to Civilian is 1:400, while going by Nigerian statistics, the ratio is 1:537, which shows that the NPF requires additional 116, 510 personnel to meet up with the recommended strength of 455,000

He said “This manpower shortage is compounded by lack of recruitment of Rank and File since 2010, which he said had depleted the capacity in the area of community policing”

“In order to enhance the confidence and trust of the public, the current administration has decided to co-opt community and religious leaders as well as civil society organisations(CSOs) in the screening and vetting of the prospective candidates into the force” he said , adding that “such involvement will make the candidates to be thoroughly vetted in both character and merit”

In his words “In addition to these measures, this administration will ensure that the current recruitment of 10,000 policemen approved by His Excellency, Mr President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces will be based on local government quota, to ensure equal representation at the grassroot across the cadres of the Force.

The Chief Police Officer who said ensuring the welfare of the men is a paramount motivation factor, said “the present administration is committed to the provisions of welfare packages such as dry rations while on beats, operations and theatres, payment of statutory benefits as at when due added that the federal government is also in collaboration with state governors making concerted efforts to ensure provision of befitting police barracks for the personnel”

He however lamented that a key impediment to the efficiency of the Force is that of inadequate funding as he revealed that the ideal requirement needed by the Force is N483,284,574,000.00 as against the annual allocation of N2,359,957,453.00 received in 2016.
