Mbu Clamours For Nationwide Police Formations RevivalFeatured, Latest News, News Sunday, November 22nd, 2015
All is not well with the Nigerian Police Formations across the country, hence the need for the Federal Government to attend promptly to the worrisome situation, says the Commandant, Police Staff College Jos, Mr Joseph Mbu.
Mbu in an interview with the NAN Sunday in the Plateau State capital lamented that there was decay and neglect in the Police, therefore, the Federal Government must set up a special committee to visit police formations in the country.
“There is decay; there is neglect; what we have on the ground is not conducive for the reform programme we all yearn for.
“Many projects in the training institutions have been abandoned,” Commandant Mbu revealed.
The Police Staff College boss advocated for more investment in the Police Force so as to achieve best service from the agency, as well as bring about change being craved for in the country.
Mbu added: “Nigerians want an improved police force in line with the change mantra, but the institutions that train the personnel are in a state of utter decay.”
However, the one-time Police Commissioner in Rivers State, held that management and personnel of the police were doing a lot, while officers on strategic courses in the college would be more encouraged and motivated, if they were fed by the force.
“That gesture would give them the time to fully concentrate without distractions.
“The police profile is rising, but there is no need for course participants here to feed themselves; government should feed them to make them feel cared for and that will in turn ginger them to make more sacrifices for the nation”, Mbu re-affirmed.
Responding on the officers trained on strategic leadership and Command by the PSC, Mbu urged the Police officers to be courageous and lead their teams like lions.
He stated: “I have often told the officers that a team of lions led by a sheep will behave like a sheep, while a team of sheep led by a lion will behave like a lion”.
