The Inspector General of Police, Mr Usman Alkali Baba has assured that security agencies and members of the military will provide a level playing field during the conduct of next year’s general elections.

He said this enabling environment will enable politicians to go about politicking freely and allow voters to exercise their franchise in a free, fair and credible election atmosphere.

The IGP gave this assurance on Wednesday when he commssioned a Police Station and Divisional Police Headquarters Lodge for Rank and File of the Nigeria Police Force at Amawbia, Awka South council area of the state.

He said the station and lodge will provide a good working environment and comfort for police officers and men after work.

While assuring of tackling insecurity in the South East, IGP Alkali Baba commended members of the Vigilante Service for their efforts in community policing and crime fighting, asking them to support their communities in maintaining security in the state.

“Police need this kind of structure for good working environment of men and officers of the NPF. It will provide service for members of the public 24/7 till eternity.”

He appreciated the people of Anambra state for the conducive environment provided by Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo’s administration.

“An environment that is free from threat or preventing the people from going about their normal business. As for the careless secession idea, that is being advocated unlawfully, we prayed that it will not continue like that. Government will not be intimidated by the threat of secession which amounts to abject criminality.”
