FG SHOULD EXTEND N-POWER PACKAGE TO COMMUNITY POLICING -Popoola

The Secretary to Ogun State Community Policing Council, Ven Dr Samson Kunle Popoola JP has urged the Federal Government to extend the various social welfare programmes like n-power which has assisted lots of graduates, artisans and market men and women in the country.

According to him, the non inclusion of community policing volunteers including the Constabulary Police men and women leaves a lot to be desired.

"Since the training and deployment of Constabulary police men and women about 2 years ago, nothing has been done in terms of welfare and support even for their basic logistics such as transport and feeding while on duty."

"While appreciating the fact that the programme is basically meant for gainfully employed candidates, we cannot run away from the facts that majority of the volunteers did so because of unemployment, it is therefore pertinent to call the attention of the Federal Government agencies in charge of social welfare programmes in the country such as N-power to consider the inclusion of Police Constabularies and those in charge of community policing in their scheme of things".
 

"Doing so will not only douse the growing agitation by these people for payment of allowance, it will also boost the manpower base of the police especially in areas of community policing and neighbourhood surveillance and watch".
 

"A monthly stipend of #15,000-#25,000 will go a long way to fight unemployment, give a boost to the Constabulary programme as well as tackling the manpower shortages of the police" he stated.
I therefore call on police authorities to make a case with the ministry in charge of social intervention for the inclusion of the constabulary programme in the N-POWER programme.
