Police Officers to Get Salaries on the 26th of every Month

policeIn what can appropriately be termed an effort to further curb the tide of corruption in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) it has been revealed that all police officers will receive their monthly salary not later than 26th of every month. This new development is connected with the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPS) which the Nigerian Police has decided to embrace.

The revelation was made by the Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF), Mr Jonah Otunla, while speaking on Tuesday, at a workshop on IPPS, organised for the police by the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation. The AGF commended the Nigerian Police for embracing the new system, in line with the transformation agenda of the Federal Government.

Declaring the workshop open, the Accountant-General observed that, like any other group of people would react to change, the Nigeria Police was not different. However, he said the police would be better for it, as officers and men of the force would be receiving their monthly salary not later than 26th, in addition to proper record-keeping of personnel information which was also part of what IPPS was all about. The workshop was entitled: “Change management and awareness workshop for officers and men of the Nigerian Police.”


  1. daz lovely bt dat ad evn mor reformz hav’nt stopped dem frm turning d police force 2a businez venture. Cnt imagine that fee negotiation frm 50,000 is don b4 an arrest cn b made. i ask dis questions. 1) why are d officerz nolonger on an identifiable outfit wit no tag or I.D cos it has been observed that fake names are been used to carry out sum unethical bailing fees and yet its past reads “BAIL IS FREE”. 2)wen did d nigerian police force especially IJEDE division under ikorodu local govt turn n2 a businez venture? A man had a land tossle ad sort redress wit d police of d mentioned division about unidentifiable tresspassers and d IPO even d DPO asked for such huge amount b4 an arrest can fall through. Is dat not enough time for criminals 2operate? And y shuld a complaint pay the police to do their job. I wud lik dat division to be investigated cos wen oil soilz a finger d rest s affected by it. Thanks
