We Are One Of The Best In The World – Nigerian Police Reject Ranking As World’s Worst

Published

Nigerian police

Contrary to a report credited to two foreign bodies, The International Police Association and the Institute for Economics and Peace, which described it as the worst in the world, the Nigeria Police Force has rated itself not only as the best in the United Nations Peace Keeping Operations and Africa but also one of the best in the world.

The report was a fallout of the 2016 World Internal Security and Police Index, WISPI, credited to two bodies, The International Police Association and the Institute for Economics and Peace.

The report claimed to have measured the ability of the police to address Internal Security Issues in 127 Countries in four key areas of capacity, process, legitimacy and outcomes.

But reacting to the report which was carried by an online medium, The Cable, Friday, the Force Headquarters said it rejected the report in its entirety, saying the framers of the so called rating were out to blackmail the Nigeria Police.

The reaction came just as the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, assured Nigerians, international community and stakeholders of policing with integrity and international core values and world best practices.

“Nigeria Police Force is the best in UN Peace Keeping Operations, best in Africa, one of the best in the world. The Force rejects the report as unempirical and absolute falsehood, and should be disregarded and discountenanced, “the police high command said in a statement released to the media through Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, a Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP. ”

The Nigeria Police Force after a careful study of the report and the news items emanating from it, wishes to state categorically that the report is entirely misleading, a clear misrepresentation of facts and figures and essentially unempirical, considering the area of coverage of the report which was said to have been carried out in 2016 by the above mentioned associations, “the Force Headquarters’ statement said. The statement read further:”

The report did not take into cognisance the significant improvement in the areas of capacity building, training and re-training of the entire personnel of the force as provided for by the current Federal Government of Nigeria and other foreign and local NGOs which has greatly improved the efficiency and service delivery of the personnel of the Force throughout the country. ”

It is pertinent to state that the instruments used to evaluate the performance of the Force vis-à-vis that of other countries is absolutely incorrect and grossly inadequate and therefore a plain distortion of facts and figures. ”

The strength of about 370,000 police personnel in the country stands at around one policeman to less than 600 people in a population estimates of 180,000,000 Nigerians. ”

The statement further read:” It is equally significant to state that the current recruitment of additional 10,000 police personnel into the Force by the Federal Government of Nigeria and the request by the Inspector General of Police to Government for approval of the recruitment of 31,000 police personnel yearly for a period of five years will definitely increase the strength of the Force to meet up with the UN ratio of one policeman to 400 citizens. In the UN Peace Keeping System, the Nigeria Police Force is rated as the best in UN Peace keeping operations in the world. This clearly shows that the Nigeria Police Force is not and cannot be the worst in the world under any known scientific yardstick or measuring instrument.”

Currently, the Nigeria Police Force is one of the only two African delegates representing the whole of Africa continent on the executive committee of Interpol, a position the Force attained based on high performance, merit and sustained good track records. ”

For avoidance of doubt, since the inception of the present Police administration in July 2016, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris, has introduced and implemented diverse internal reforms aimed at improving capacity building and efficient service delivery of the personnel of the Force, which is yielding positive results in the standardization of the capability of the Nigeria Police Force to deal with violent crimes and terrorism throughout the country.”

The establishment and take-off of a world class Terrorism Investigation Bureau for the Force with state-of-the-art equipment and technical support from foreign partners has greatly improved the capacity of the Force to deal with threats posed to internal security in this regard.

“However, it must be pointed out that the Nigeria Police Force sees the report as a clear demonstration of mischief, ignorance and calculated attempt to distort the feat being recorded by the Force in ensuring adequate security and safety of Nigerians. ”

Nowhere in the report were references made to either the improved capacity or achievements recorded by the Nigeria Police Force across the country in the recent time, the Force therefore implores all Nigerians and international community to disregard the report as unfounded and misleading.

“The renewed determination of the Force to adhere to Internal Police Reforms for greater efficiency in service delivery and conform to standard principles, building trust and confidence in the citizenry for their safety remain unequivocal and unwavering.”

FIRS: Abba Kyari’s Query That Sacked Tunde Fowler

Published

on

In a letter dated August 8, 2019, Abba Kyari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari gave Babatunde Fowler, then chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service a query. Kyari wanted a response within a few days.

In the query, Kyari wrote: “Your attached letter (FIRS/EC/CWP/0249/19/027 dated 26 July 2019) on the above subject matter, refers.

“We observed significant variances between the budgeted collections and actual collections for the period 2015 to 2018. Accordingly, you are kindly invited to submit a comprehensive variance analysis explaining the reasons for the variances between budgeted and actual collections for each main tax item for each of the years 2015 to 2018.

“Furthermore, we observed that the actual collections for the period 2015 to 2017 were significantly worse than what was collected between 2012 and 2014. Accordingly, you are kindly to explain the reasons for the poor collections.

“You are kindly invited to respond by 19 August 2019.

Abba Kyari’s Query for Fowler that may have triggered the non-renewal of Fowler’s tenure

“Please accept the assurances of my highest regards.”

The government observed that in 2015, FIRS set N4.7 trillion target but was only able to make N3.7 trillion in the actual collection.

In 2016 the target collection was N4.2 trillion, but the actual was N3.3trillion.

The same happened in 2017 when the tax revenue estimate was put at N4.8 trillion, but only N4trillion entered the treasury.

In 2018, the government also noted that N6.7 trillion was estimated for collection, but the actual collection was N5.3 trillion.

The gravity of the letter and its timing made many observers believe that Fowler was being targeted and that his tenure didn’t stand a chance of renewal.

The former Lagos chief taxman, a classmate of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at Igbobi College in the 70s, was appointed by Buhari in August 2015. But the Senate did not confirm him until December 2015.

Some analysts believe that Fowler’s shoving aside by Aso Rock may also have something to do with Osinbajo, as he falls out of favour with the cabal in Aso Rock.

Around the time that Abba Kyari’s query was circulating in the social media, a group that called itself “Concerned Staff of FIRS”, also petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari over what it called “the atrocities and infractions” allegedly perpetrated by Fowler.

In an open letter, the group advised President Buhari not to re-appoint Fowler because the FIRS boss had “unimaginably taken it back to the old dark period of inefficient and ineffective days.”

It also recommended that the activities of Fowler from the day he was appointed up to his last day in office should be investigated and brought to book for all infractions he had committed while holding sway as the Executive Chairman of FIRS, SR reports.

The group wrote, “One would have expected that his appointment would improve the hallmark achievements he met on the ground but the reverse is the case. The first seven months of his tenure as the chief executive of FIRS has led to a series of abuse/violation of laid down processes and procedures, a flagrant disobedience to established rules, policies and laws, a total disrespect to the leadership in various coordinating groups, departments and other positions within the service and a total collapse of the entire system.

“The noble and professional institution (FIRS) which was left behind by his predecessors has completely been politicized and has now become a Mecca or Jerusalem of some sorts to politicians and parasitic contractors.

“This rascality was further heightened by the claim that the current Vice President is his (Fowler’s) friend and a school mate and for this reason, he could abuse the due process and get away with it. In saner climes, his relationship with the vice president must propel him to respect all known processes, procedures, laws and constituted authority while discharging his duties and responsibilities as a public officer who would be held accountable for his actions and inactions. Sadly enough, the reverse is the case in FIRS.”

Other allegations against the FIRS boss included extravagant weekly spending on concerts and parties in Lagos, Port Harcourt and other major cities within and outside Nigeria, frivolous donations to organizations while staff entitlements for official engagements would take a long time to settle.

The FIRS staff claimed that Fowler had got away with what it termed corporate and institutional lies about FIRS performance, adding that while Fowler announced N1.5 trillion as tax revenue in the first quarter of the year, the sum of N1.07 trillion was the actual collection for the same period.
