Police new recruit does not know name of Nigeria President, CJN —DCP

Police new recruit does not know name of Nigeria President, CJN —DCP

The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) FCT, Mr Sola Okediji, has revealed that some constables aspiring to join Nigeria Police could not give the name of Nigeria President and the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).

Okediji made the disclosure at the investigation and sensitisation on rule of law training for FCT police officers, organised by the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (RoLAC), on Friday in Abuja.

RoLAC programme is funded by the European Union and managed by the British Council.

Okediji, told the participants that he was posted to Rivers in Port Harcourt as part of those to interview prospective constables to be enlisted into the Nigeria police, but was stunned when a constable could not answer the question put to him.

According to him, he had asked the prospective constable “what is the name of the President of Nigeria”, to which he could not proffer an answer.

The DCP also said that he posed another question to the intending constable as to “who is the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN),” to which he could not answer the question also.

Okediji said he had no choice than to fire the constable immediately, adding that the Nigeria police would not condole such ignorance. He added that such ignorance was unacceptable to the Nigeria Police.

He said that some of the constables were parading five credits in their Senior Secondary School (SSCE) certificate without being able to defend it.

According to him, those who were not fast in current affairs and do not know issues happening in the country would not be allowed into the police force.

He called on the police investigators and detective on RoLAC training to apply wisdom in the course of their job, adding that they should always duplicate their case files to forestall trouble.

Okediji, however, charged investigation officers and detective on training to have confidence in themselves while carrying out their duties, adding that when they were sound and loaded no one would push them aside.

He urged them to show during cross examination, that you are there and rooted in the case, that is what excellent on the job means, do not collect bribe and do not encourage it.

The DCP called on the officers not to be a part of the rot in the police but endeavour to be a solution, adding that only God could reward those who worked with the fear of God.
