An NGO , Advocacy for Better Welfare of Nigeria Police , on Sunday canvassed a minimum wage of at least N100, 000 for the least officer in the Nigeria Police to ensure quality service delivery .
Mr Solomon Bankole , the President of the group, who made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN ) in Lagos , said that it had become imperative to sanitise and rebrand Nigeria Police through improved welfare .
According to him , the time has come to improve the condition of service of police officers to get the best out of them .
“ It has become imperative to update and upwardly review the monthly salary of all officers , rank and file with a minimum of N100,000 for the least officer .
“ We must advocate for improved policies and continuous review of such policies to hold the police accountable for better services and respect for human rights ,” Bankole said .
The president, who called for proper discipline for all officers to serve with integrity , urged the Federal Government to prioritise regular provision of kits and motivations for the police .
He said the annual budgetary allocation expected to take care of the welfare of officers and rank and file of the Nigeria Police should be disbursed for its purposes as expected .
“ For Nigerians to have a better society , there is a need for better police . Policing is a special duty and that is the reason for our campaign for better welfare package for police officers .
“There won ’t be a change in the image of Nigeria Police and public perception with poor remuneration , lack of kits and other equipment designed to make the work efficient.
“ With good pay, necessary kits and other equipment and motivation , most of the police misconducts and abuses will be reduced ,” Bankole said .
According to him , the group will not relent on its calls for strict discipline, adherence to rule of law , human rights protection and quest for international best practices in policing .
He urged the government to be committed to removing hatred , disrepute , public hostility and loss of confidence in the police through improved welfare package.
“ We are advocating for respect of rule of law and human rights of all Nigerians and foreign nationals in Nigeria.
“ We are also advocating for improved policies and continuous review of such policies to hold the police accountable for better services and respect for human rights .
“ Our group have strong belief in the sacrificial journey to sanitise and rebrand the image of Nigeria Police , ” the president said . (NAN )
