The VP, Yemi Osinbajo, has acknowledged that the Nigeria Police Force is not properly funded, ascribing it as the major challenge facing the security agency.
Yemi Osinbajo speaking during the commissioning of the Police Barracks, Special Protection Unit (SPU) base 6 at Omagwa in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, he said the Federal Government worked with the National Assembly to enact the Police Trust Fund Act.
“We are looking at other measures to improve funding for the police. This event meets two objectives – It is an important part of our government’s efforts to improve the lives of our police officers and it is also another important milestone in our administration’s pursuit in the peace and development of the Niger Delta.”
The vice president commended the NDDC for constructing the sixth base of the police Special Protection Unit (SPU) in the state, adding that the new building consists of 66 apartments for the security men.
