How can we say we are fighting corruption in the police with a structure like this? We can't fight corruption without addressing the root cause. Over to the authorities, do the needful and your anti-corruption campaign in the police will have a smooth sail.

Terrible. Then we wonder why they are corrupt and accept bribe. How are they supposed to raise a family with these meager wages? Go to developed countries and their police force are treated like demi gods and well paid with full health insurance, pension and discounts for just about anything they want to buy. I don't support corruption, but until the Nigerian police force is well compensated, we shouldn't expect much from them.

The salary structure is laughable especially as a recruit! How much are senators,house of assembly members both state and the federal level paid??

Why is there so much injustice in Nigeria?? Why is there no hope in sight for the common man?? Why are Nigerian leaders both past and present wicked??

Is Nigeria as a nation really cursed with birdbrain leaders that they cannot create a level playing field for all?

This is no excuse, I am sure they earn more than some of the people they are extorting. Even their ogas that earn a lot will still extort you if opportunity presents itself. Those people are deplorable.

The lowest rank in the police is constable. A police recruit is simply a police in training. Even though that doesn't justify why they should be paid 9k, i just need to clear the misconception

How much are traffic wardens paid. There was a guy in Ilorin that joined the traffic department some years ago. He was neat, had clean and new clothes. These days, after like 3-4yrs, you could see the obvious frustration on the guys face and lack of job satisfaction. Most of them don't get promoted past the Sergeant cadre all through their career. Such a pity.
