” Nigeria being a country has an estimated population of 182,000,000 over a more than the last 2006 National Population Census and has a police strength estimated to be about 338, 490. According to the United Nation, The official Ratio of policeman to Civilian as recommended  is 1:400. If we check what we have in Nigerian statistics, the ratio is 1:537, which goes to say that the Nigeria Police Force will need an additional 116, 510 personnel in other to meet up with the recommended strength of 455,000 by the United Nation’s ratio.

According to the IGP, “This manpower shortage  has been caused by the lack of recruitment of Rank and File since 2010, and have depleted the capacity in the area of community policing”

“In order to enhance the confidence and trust of the public as regards the security of the people, the current administration has decided to co-opt community and religious leaders as well as civil society organisations (CSOs) in the screening and vetting of the prospective candidates into the force” he said , adding that “such involvement will make the candidates to be thoroughly vetted in both character and merit.

He later said that “In addition to these measures, this administration which he is pioneering will make sure that the current recruitment of 10,000 policemen which have been approved by His Excellency, Mr President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces will be altogether be based on an effective local government quota, which will should also rate an equal representation at the grassroot across the cadres of the Force.

The IGP also said that the present administration will be committed to the provisions of welfare packages such as dry rations while on beats, operations and theatres, the payment of statutory benefits as at when due that will also be added that the federal government is also in collaboration with state governors making concerted efforts to ensure provision of befitting police barracks for the personnel”

The major setback which have actually become a major impediment to the efficiency of the Force according to the IGP has been that of inadequate funding as he also revealed that the ideal requirement needed by the Force is N483,284,574,000.00 as against the annual allocation of N2,359,957,453.00 received in 2016.
