President Goodluck Jonathan has disclosed that the immediate past IG, Suleiman Abba, was sacked following gross indiscipline amongst the personnel of the force during his tenure.

The chairman of the Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro, stated this to journalists following a Police Council meeting, chaired by President Goodluck Jonathan.

“The President, in a very brief way said, during the period of the former IGP, a lot of indiscipline was noticed among the rank and file of the police and as such he felt that a new IG should come and try his luck,” Mr. Okiro said. “That is what (Mr. Jonathan) said, though I cannot give details of that.”

Also at the council, Mr. Jonathan confirmed the appointment of the new Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase.

Mr. Arase was appointed by the president as the Acting IGP following the sack of Mr. Abba on the April 21. He has been in an acting capacity for three weeks.

Emerging from a meeting with Mr. Jonathan, Vice President Namadi Sambo and Mr. Okiro, the now substantive IGP, Mr. Arase, told journalists that the welfare of his men will be “number one on ‎my cardinal responsibilities.”

“You don’t motivate a workforce except their welfare is paramount,” he said. “I’m going to ensure that their welfare is going to be put on the front burner.”

He said though the expectations of Nigerians are high, he could assure them that no Nigerian will suffer any injustice by his inaction or action.
On his order banning road blocks, Mr. Arase said there was already an enforcement policy in place. He said 16 teams have already moved out across the length and breadth of Nigeria to ensure strict compliance.

Does jonathan know the meaning of the word 'misconduct'? Why didn't he sack him long time ago?
Mr president you sacked him because he didn't rig the election enough for you. We saw what happened in Rivers when pdp rejected the officer he sent

Sir, u do not owe anybody explanation over the sacking of the disloyal servant.
It is ur prerogative and no one can question u, for what u did, which was necessary as the number 1 police officer of the country.

This is funny. Playing to the hatred of the citizens against their police force. The Nigerian police are the most useless bunch of imbeciles ever to be created. Thier own is to either beg for money or forcefully obtain it.

Check them well they never end well, when every single day nothing but curses are heaped upon your head and your family that's why they all have family issues. Bastards


Police is my friend indeed.



Thunder waya all policemen reading this .





Pants*** meanwhile Oga fedora hat Na today day break when you know say police is undisciplined.

*when he removed tambuwal's security, you did not notice indiscipline in the force.
*when he deployed joseph mbu to put amaechi in check, you did not notice indiscipline in the force.
*when he gave cover for the ekiti gate scandal, you did not notice indiscipline in the force.
*when he used his men to harass the bring back our girls group, you did not notice indiscipline in the force.
*when he flouted jega's policy that voters could wait behind after voting, you did not notice indiscipline in the force.
*and then when he mobilized CP Ogunsakin to rivers state to ensure smooth elections, safety of lives and to counter the PDP's rigging and killing escapade, and when it leaked you suddenly noticed indiscipline in the force.
WELDONE MR PRESIDENT!
