Police Pay Personnel Promptly
The attention of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to a report on News Express Online Media, titled “Police Officers Threaten to Down Tools Over Unpaid Allowances” credited to one Pamela Eboh from Awka, Anambra State, today, 29th October, 2018.
The Force wishes to categorically state that the report is untrue, a falsehood, unfounded, a fake news and mischievous attempt to misinform members of the public as no Police Officer in Anambra State or anywhere in the Country Threaten to Down Tools Over Unpaid Allowances.
To set the record straight, no Police personnel is being owed any promotion allowance by the Force as salaries and allowances are being paid on time and as at when due. Once Police personnel is promoted to the next rank, it is expected of the officer to update and submit his/her salary variation update form to the Police Account and Budget Office for processing who will in turn forward same to the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (IPPIS Section) to effect payment of salary increment and allowances.
Members of the public are implored to disregard and discountenance the report that “Police Officers Threaten to Down Tools Over Unpaid Allowances” as untrue, unfounded and a fake news.
Ag. DCP JIMOH MOSHOOD
FORCE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER
The attention of the Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to online publications and in some National dailies that “some Police officers in the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police in Anambra State on Sunday threatened to down tools over non payment of their promotion allowances.”
The publications are not only false but also misleading and definitely a figment of the imagination of mischief makers who are bent on portraying the Command and it’s leadership in bad light probably to achieve their selfish interest.
For the avoidance of doubt, officers and men of the Command are not only loyal,disciplined and hardworking but also highly professionals who are guided by the ethics of the Force and therefore cannot indulge in this unwholesome act.
The Command therefore implores the media practitioners to always refrain from misleading the public with falsehood, please.
