The new Commissioner of Police in Cross River State, CP Abdulkadir Jimoh has read riot act to officers and men of the command.
Speaking at the inaugural meeting with officers in the Command on Monday, CP Jimoh said, “My mission in the State is integrity and I am coming with integrity.
“I will not allow anybody to soil my name, so I am appealing to all officers and men to live above board. This is a new dawn, the era of extortion, the era of arbitrary arrest and unlawful detention is over, I will not tolerate it.
“I believe in accountability, officers and men are going to be accountable for every action they take, I believe in honesty, you must be honest with the people of Cross River State, you must be honest with your colleagues and you must be honest with the Commissioner of Police,” CP Jimoh stated.
He urged the officers and men not to make life difficult for the people, “Should we make life difficult for them, God will not forgive us. Our service delivery must change.
“As the head of this command, I will live by example and I want the people to feel our impact positively and I believe in economic development. If the Police makes it difficult for people to move, the ease of doing business will be very difficult.
“For instance, if container is coming from Aba to Calabar and you have about 100 roadblocks, when are they going to get here? I want the entire tactical commander and everybody to get this warning message that I want development in Cross River State.
“I want business to grow in Cross River State. I want Cross River State IGR to increase, that is why I am going to key into Federal Government way of doing business and by making sure that there is no bottleneck created by the Police on the road”.
The CP warned all the criminals in the state to know that Cross River State is going to witness a new dawn, “I am using this opportunity to appeal to all those who have criminal intent or who are engaged in criminal activities to abundance this heinous way of lives or relocate to another state.”
