Nigeria Police Council Makes Arase Substantive Police Boss

IGP AranseThe Nigeria Police Council has confirmed Solomon Arase as the substantive Inspector-General of Police. Arase was appointed ‎by President Goodluck Jonathan after removing the former Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba in April 2015.
The new IG, who spoke with newsmen at the State House shortly after his confirmation, said that his main task would be to upgrade the welfare of members of the Nigerian Police Force.
According to him, motivation is a key to increase productivity which is why he has made it a topmost priority.
The Police Inspector-General gave an assurance that he would bring crime rate to the lowest minimum even as he promised not to renege on his earlier commitment towards ensuring road block free highways in Nigeria.
The IGP had warned during a meeting with Commissioners of Police in Abuja that the command of any jurisdiction where roadblocks are found would be held liable and swiftly dealt with in line with Police rules and regulations.
According to him, a 16-team task force has now been mandated to comply with his directives on the removal of the road blocks which he had earlier referred to as public nuisances and points of corruption.
Arase holds Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Law, Political Science and Strategic Studies.
He is also a Fellow of the Nigerian Defence College.
