Efforts by the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, to rid the force of corruption has received the backing of the presidency, as the Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption led by Professor Itsey Sagay, SAN, assured Arase of total support.
Prof. Sagay’s anti-corruption group paid a courtesy call on the IGP in his office at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, yesterday, soliciting for partnership with the police.
The legal luminary expressed confidence in the ability of the IGP to take Nigeria Police to greater heights, stressing that his committee would assist the police and other agencies saddled with the responsibilities of fighting corruption to succeed.
Sagay revealed further that his committee was charged to promote the effectiveness of the administration of criminal justice as well as improving the integrity of officers and men engaging in the war against corruption in Nigeria.
In his response, the IGP said that the removal of road blocks from highways and application of other administrative policies such as creation of whistle-blowing platform social network site to report unprofessional conducts of policemen had assisted in no small measure to reduce corrupt practices within the force.
The IGP further gave his total support for a warm relationship with the committee to succeed in its tasks.
