Corruption war: Enugu Police launches Change Begins With Me crusade

The launching of Change Begins With Me campaign and distributions of Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit flyers in Enugu.

THE Police in Enugu has launched “Change Begins with Me” crusade in strict compliance with the directives of the Inspector-General of Police.

It was learnt that the main purpose of the Change launch is to fight corruption and impunity in the society.

Speaking at the occasion last Wednesday in Enugu, the  State Commissioner of Police, Douglas Agbonleni, maintained that he was delighted for the official launch of the Change with me,  stressing that the formal distribution of public complaint Rapid Response  Flyers produced in English,Hausa,Igbo,Yoruba and Pidgin Languages was a good development.

According to Agbonleni, the Inspector General of Police IGP Ibrahim K.Idris had earlier launched the programme in Abuja on monday  November 21,2016.

‘The essence of the launch in Enugu state is to reiterate the promise of the Inspector General of Police on assumption of office that he will reposition the Nigeria Police Force to be more accomodative,responsive, responsible and reliable in order to have  a police Force that will           discharge its statutory responsibilities and other duties based on international best practices”

“He has no tolerance for corruption and ensure that the rule of  law  prevails in her action and activities. As you are all aware,the change begins with me campaign was launched in Abuja by the present administration of president Muhammadu Buhari to seek attitudinal change of all Nigerians both in their public and private life so that they can be the change desired in the society,by this programme

“We in the Nigeria Police Force Enugu state command affirm that we are prepared to align ourselves with the aims,objectives and aspirations of the present administration in ensuring that our actions and activities reflect the change we desire in our society stressed Agbonleni.

”I therefore urged all and sundry to assist the police in her transformation agenda by refusing to pay money for bail no matter the threat, refusing to be extorted on the road by any police officer and reporting promptly the misconduct of any of the police officers through the numbers as contained in the public complaint rapid response flyers.

The high point of the occasion was the unveiling and formal distribution the flyers to the invited guests made  up of the National Union of Road  Transport workers Enugu state council, members  of the volunteer Peace Advocate Project V-PAD, Association of Tricycle Riders Transport Union, Trade Union Congress ( TUC) market and Traders Association, youth and religious based bodies.

Some police officers were seen carrying banners with various inscriptions such as: “ Corruption free police officer is possible” “Bail is free” “Say No to Extortion, Say No to Torture” “Change Begins with me”

The event is expected to reach every local government area in the state including some motor parks and other public squares in Enugu metropolis.
