Police set to regulate your campaigns, rallies, IGP tells politicians

Usman Baba-Alkali, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has implored political platforms and politicians to cooperate with the police, so as to enable proper regulation and coordination of their campaigns for 2023 general elections.

The IGP made this revelation on Sunday in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State while addressing newsmen.

The Inspector-General of Police revealed that this measure would be put in place to prevent possible breakdown of law and order.

“I want to beg the politicians and political parties to give us the opportunity to regulate their processions, rallies and campaigns so that they dont have clash.

“The Commissioner of Police is not saying you must apply for permit before you campaign or rally but for him to know so that he can provide security for the venue of campaign or to tell you if another party is also campaigning, for you to adjust to another date.

“It’s a matter of regulating for the benefit of all, to avoid things getting out of control,” the IGP said.

He has given assurance of the commitment of the police force to the political class.

He however noted that the use of pseudo security agents by any political actor or political platform would be resisted.

“Right now we have another 10,000 recruits undergoing training that we hope to graduate before the election,” Baba-Alkali said.

“The successes we achieved in fighting Boko-Haram couldn’t have been possible without injecting CJTF.

“The CJTF assisted greatly as they know who is who in the area and led securty to flush them out. That is what we want to copy.

“Security is all about everybody playing his quota; what your next neighbour is doing must interest you,” the IGP said.

The Informant247 observes that the IGP was in Borno State for a two-day working visit where some police projects were launched by him in Beneshiek and Maiduguri.
