2019: Dick­son warns po­lice against par­ti­san­ship

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Bassey Wil­lie, Ye­nagoa

Gov­er­nor Se­ri­ake Dick­son of Bayelsa State has urged the of­fi­cers of the Nige­rian Po­lice Force not to suc­cumb to the will of politi­cians dur­ing the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions.

The gov­er­nor made the call yes­ter­day while re­ceiv­ing the new Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice in the state, Joseph Mukan. He said the coun­try’s se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture was too crit­i­cal an in­sti­tu­tion to al­low it­self to be ma­nip­u­lated by those he de­scribed as “lazy politi­cians who have failed to in­ter­face with the elec­torate.”

Dick­son urged the new po­lice com­mis­sioner to up­hold the in­tegrity of the Force and ex­hibit a high sense of pro­fes­sion­al­ism in the dis­charge of his du­ties.

The Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice said his mis­sion was to pro­tect lives and prop­erty in the state.
