To gain the trust of the public, Tinubu calls on the police to end corruption.In order to win over Nigerians' trust and faith, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has advised police officers and men to shun corruption and tyranny.

At today's Conference and Retreat for Commissioners of Police and Above in Owerri, Imo State, the President delivered the charge.

The president asked the IGP and his officers to lead by example and establish the highest bar for behavior.

Senator Ibrahim Gaidam, the Minister of Police Affairs, represented the president at the function.

"I want to emphasize the importance of professional ethics and integrity," stated the president. You have a duty to lead by example and set the highest standards of conduct as senior officers and leaders.

Gaining the trust and confidence of the Nigerian people requires upholding the values of justice, accountability, and transparency. Together, let's eradicate misconduct and corruption from our ranks and create a police department that is both respected and looked up to.

"This retreat represents a critical turning point in our collective efforts to improve the efficacy and efficiency of our country's police force," he continued. It gives us a priceless chance to consider our accomplishments, talk about the difficulties we encounter, and set goals for the future. We are deeply grateful for your leadership among the Nigerian Police Force; you have demonstrated unwavering passion, commitment, and service to our wonderful country.

"Ensuring the safety, security, and well-being of our citizens is our responsibility as police officers. Law enforcement is a fundamental pillar of any society." As we carry out this admirable mission, we confront many obstacles, from cyberthreats and intercommunal strife to organized crime and terrorism.

But I really think that we can overcome these obstacles and create a safer Nigeria for everybody if we have the correct plans, the proper tools, and the willpower.

We may have insightful conversations, share ideas, and benefit from one another's experiences during this retreat. Let's take advantage of this chance to evaluate our current level of progress and pinpoint areas for additional development.

"In order to improve our policing techniques, we need to address topics like professional ethics, community engagement, capacity building, and technology use. With the speed at which technology is developing in this day and age, we need to be innovative and make use of digital tools to increase our effectiveness.

"We can prevent crime, gather intelligence, and investigate complex situations with the help of technology. I thus implore everyone to investigate and embrace cutting-edge technology that can aid in our goal of upholding law and order.

Additionally, community involvement is essential to closing the communication gap between the public and the police. In order to effectively combat crime, we must work to establish positive connections, cultivate trust, and actively involve the local community. We may foster a sense of ownership and responsibility for security and make an environment that is safer by collaborating closely with the individuals we serve.

Speaking to the attendees, Inspector General of Police Kayode Egbetokun stated that the main goals of his administration's police policy are enhancing officers' capabilities, standardizing service delivery in order to advance a transformative agenda, and embracing the values of accountability, transparency, and professionalism while defending citizens' rights and looking out for the welfare of officers.
