As Police Discredits News Reports 


The Nigeria Police Force has said reports on non-payment of election allowances to Officers, is misleading and unfounded, adding that it should be disregarded. 

A statement by the FPRO, Muyiwa Adejobi on Saturday, further noted that the payment of allowances of Police Officers who participated in the Osun State Gubernatorial Election duty, has been scheduled already.

He added that their account details have been forwarded to the Police Accounts and Budget (PAB) office at the Force Headquarters where payments were prepared and disbursed accordingly.

“The said payment of allowances to cover the election duty was disbursed directly into individual accounts from the PAB Office and not through any State Police Command. As such, individuals started receiving payment alerts even before the commencement of the election”, he noted.

He however noted that one of the new generation banks (name withheld), with whom some of the officers accounts are domiciled, reported delays in disbursement due to technical issues.

“This was immediately followed up and from all indications, the concerned bank have commenced payments.”

The statement added, “all complaints with regards to this have been addressed internally and every officer captured for the election duty have been paid. This situation is noveau as it has not been experienced in the previous Anambra and Ekiti gubernatorial elections. It is fully the bank’s fault and not that of the Force. Officers affected were communicated via SMS and internal memo as to the situation. Continuous complaint on this particular delay in payments which has been addressed amounts to impatience and indiscipline on the part of the affected officers.”
