Kogi and Bayelsa elections: Police drums up security for INEC

-

- Advertisment -

The Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, has assured the Independent National Electoral Commission of the preparedness of the Police to provide adequate security during the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections.

Arase also, gave State Commissioners of Police a one week ultimatum to report on their compliance to earlier directives on withdrawal of policemen attached to unauthorised persons across the Country.

He said the reduction of police personnel to political office holders would go a long way at increasing the number of policemen deployed to strategic places.

Arase who gave the ultimatum, when he visited the Acting Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Amina Zakari in Abuja, said the aim of the visit was to cement the existing relationship between Police and the Commission and ensure the actualisation of INEC’s mandate.

The Police Chief said he had directed Police Commissioners nationwide to ensure adequate security at INEC offices and at election tribunal sittings.

In her response, Zakari used the occasion to intimate the visiting Police Chief of INEC’s readiness to work with the police in ensuring successes on the forth coming elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States.
