The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Baba, has commended the National Assembly for the historic passage of the Police Pension Board Bill and the Nigeria Police Force College, Training School and Institution (Establishment) Bill, on Tuesday June 6, 2023.

The IGP in a press statement by Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Thursday in Abuja, said described the passage of the two critical Bills as a milestone achievement with positive impact that will redefine the act of policing the country, standardise the training capacity of the Force, enhance police productivity and address the reccurring pension related hardship.

Usman stressed that the removal of the NPF from the contributory pension scheme and establishment of NPF Pension Board was a welcome development and will be resourceful in addressing the plight of Police retirees.

While acknowledging the doggedness and resilience of the National Assembly in the passage of these critical  Bills, the IGP commended the efforts of well-meaning Nigerians for their support and concern towards the passage of the bills which in no time will definitely attract the assent of the President for their full implementation.
