    A statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Muhammed Jalige, dated November 14, said that the CP was received by the Commission’s Administrative Secretary, Alh. Auwal Mohammed Mashi with whom he jointly inspected the facilities and reviewed deployments while proffering professional advice on physical security of assets and materials.

    The security assessment tour was in compliance with the directives of the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba psc(+), NPM, NEAPS, fdc, CFR, on the fortification of all INEC offices across the country.

    Divisional Police Officers and their supervisory Area Commanders were earlier directed by the CP in his weekly conference with officers, to ensure round-the-clock tight security around INEC offices in their respective Area of Responsibility (AORs).

    The CP took advantage of the visit to assure INEC of the strong support of the Police Command and that of other security agencies in the execution of the Commission’s mandate of conducting a free, fair and credible 2023 general election. The CP sternly warned miscreants and mischief makers to steer clear of INEC facilities and advised political actors, candidates and their parties to play the game by the rules or have the law to contend with.
