IGP-Solomon-AraseThe Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Solomon Arase, has assured the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of the preparedness of the Police to provide adequate security during the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, Acting ACP Olabisi Kolawole in Abuja on Wednesday.

The statement said Arase gave the assurance during a courtesy visit on the Acting Chairperson of INEC, Mrs. Amina Zakari in Abuja.

It said the visit was aimed at cementing the existing relationship between the police and the commission in ensuring the actualisation of its mandate.

The statement further said that the IGP had directed Police Commissioners nationwide to ensure adequate security at INEC offices and election tribunal sittings.

In her remark, Zakari reiterated the commission’s readiness to work with the police in ensuring successes at the upcoming elections in Kogi and Bayelsa.

In another development, the IGP has given State Commissioners of Police a one-week ultimatum to report on their compliance on withdrawal of Policemen attached to unauthorised persons.

It also directed them to give a report on the compliance to the reduction of Police personnel to political office holders within same period.
