…Pledges Continued Support To The Police
RIVERS State Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has pledged his administration’s preparedness to continually assist the state police command to build on the peace and security in the state.
Amaechi spoke while receiving the new Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Indabawa, who paid him a courtesy visit at Government House, Port Harcourt, yesterday.
The governor congratulated the new police chief and urged him to capitalise on the relative success of his predecessor, Mr. Sulaiman Abba, and bring in his own expertise to maintain peace and security in the state.
“I have heard about your capacity, in terms of operations and believe you will continue from where your predecessor stopped before he was promoted.
“If the stories we read about you are anything to go by, it is my belief that you would do same,” he added.
The governor also encouraged Indabawa to work hard to meet the expectations of the people and even perform better than his predecessor and inculcate discipline amongst officers in the state police command.
Amaechi appealed to him to take inventory of Police assets in the state and maintain police vehicles to fight crime in the state, saying: “It is important that you take inventory of the assets that you have, especially the ones that were donated by the Rivers State Government, because we have given the police a lot of vehicles and we need to see police patrol our streets and roads.”
Indabawa promised to use available manpower and resources to fight crime in the state and against internal corruption in the command.
He solicited the cooperation of the government and people of the state and commended the governor for his continuous assistance to the force.
