Least Police Man Take Home Pay Is Now 26k?

I think, this is the bold step and of course in d rite direction, a police recruit going home with 26k and its 4 real, no longer rumour as it were, a police officer confirmed to me that he's started collecting his bucks already.

Hope it reduces d level of corruption in the force and restores discipline, also hope police trully bcome our friends. Thanks to the federal government any way.

Left to me, any police officer who carries a gun should earn at least 100K per month.

Nigerians are very funny, what is 26,000 naira in nigeria of today,would it stop policemen taking 20 naira on d road,hell no, we shouldnt decieve ourselves,anything what doing, it what doing well, a policeman would not risk his life for 26,000 naira, if he dies what happens to his family, the useless okiro was saying the family would get 500,000 naira,how pathethic, how much is it to rent a three bedroom in lagos. The police need a welfare package, good accomodation and 5 million for his family if he dies while on duty,except dis happens, we nigerians are just lying to ourselves.

I do not like policemen but sadly we need them, so we need to equip them properly.

even though 26k cannot make a reasonable difference, its better compared to what was obtainable, i want to believe its a reformation process and its got to start some where, i guess.

True, have been to d barracks and i ve seen d conditions, 27 flats with just 4 bathrooms and only 12 toilets to share, dilapidated buildings begging for renulvation, drainage system completely absent, over crowding, u just name them, its really disgusting but i only hope d government dosent stop @ salary increase alone and should go as far as considering other amenities.

Fact remains that an average policeman will tell u he's enjoying his job now more than he used to.

its not about the money alone, also the condition of service.

Is the pay rise effective yet, or is it one of those empty promises that keep them salivating?

@noetic,

well, the situation is that bad and am well aware but dont forget we have to start somewhere, some body that was collecting as low as 9k monthly wakes up with an increment of over 200% with arears paid, i think its a step forward.

no offence intended, but u sound uninformed.

26k for what? no adequate affordable housing, no life insurance policies and he still has to buy his uniform.

the average police officer lives in a God-forsaken police barracks, where fortunately for him an armed robber will not robb. His predecessors, who he is supposed to look up to have not been paid their pensions and when they are, its not prompt.

we need a police force with well trained officers, properly catered for and who are led by example. this way we can aspire for a decent service.

attempting to seprate the problems of the police and that of nigeria in general, is unlogical arithmetic. a police officer`s kids will still go to public schools, use public hospitals, use public transport.

infact the police force is just a fraction of a "commatose" nigeria.

greed is exclusive to human beings, so 26k doesnt stop any one from collectin illegal N20.

so what can an irregular 26k do?

Do you think increasing the police pay packet will reduce the level of corruption in the force ?No,not close to the solution.The former IG Tafa Balogun experience is a pure example of a typical Nigerian Police officer.

Economic reasons are not the main cause of corruption in Nigeria,but the level of greed and selfishness.
