President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval of Rank Salary Structure Adjustment for the Nigeria Police Force, has been met with criticism from expected quarter, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“I am pleased to make the increase in salaries and allowances in the hope that will increase the performance index of the police and strengthen Nigeria’s internal security system,” the President was quoted as saying in a statement his media aide, Mr Garba Shehu, released on Monday.
The news is receiving mixed reactions with some heaping praises on Buhari while others like PDP hitting out at his action.
“It is a battered government of deceit that has lost the morality to lead. Let’s us pray that the Buhari Presidency will fulfil the promise. If that is the only promise it will fulfil before it leaves office next year, let us pray it is able to do that. Nigerians should also pray that the President will not renege on the promise, or even said a committee be set up later to discuss it in order for it to buy time,” the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, stated in a statement he released.
