We are committed to give Nigerians the best security arrangement in the general election with equal playing ground & adequate security for all. As lead agency in internal security, we will work with other security and safety agencies to ensure a safe and secured environment
Special Election Investigation Teams (SEIT) is a proactive ad-hoc unit set up by the IGP, it will be disbanded when we are done with elections and all election matters.
Decentralisation of SARS is constitutional, Sec 215 explains this initiative. It will correct every anomaly, bureaucratic bottleneck &bring the Police close to the people. The IGP is committed to this willpower & has directed the command CPs on his policy direction in this regard.
