The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali, has advised officers to marry among themselves, claiming it would strengthen the Police Force.
Alkali stated this during his one-day working visit to the Niger State Police Command in Minna.
The IGP told there are good men and women in the Force they could get married to, in order to enhance the good working relationship existing between them.
“We have some handsome single men and beautiful ladies among us. I would like to advise us to start taking our wives and husbands from our colleagues to buttress our already existing working relationship to that of full family affairs.
“By doing so, the good working relationship existing among the personnel will go just beyond the normal office relationship and will help in the improvement of confidence and harmonious relationship. It will also go a long way in providing courage and strength to our service.
“I think it will be a welcome idea if we start looking inwards to see how we can build a better family here than going outside looking for a good wife,” Alkali said.
The Police boss also charged the personnels to inculcate good attitude in their children and wards in order to be good ambassadors among other barracks (Service) boys in the country that they can be proud of everywhere anytime.
The IGP further told the officers that the force and other relevant authority are working at improving the welfare and pension of policemen across the nation.
