I Shall Be Committed To Enhanced Welfare for police officers -Onyeagocha


The PDP Candidate for Imo East Senatorial District in the February 25 National Assembly election, Uche Onyeagocha has expressed commitment in improving the welfare of police officers to engender effective policing.

Onyeagocha disclosed this when some retired police officers in the state paid him a solidarity visit in his hometown Obinze, Owerri West LGA.

Onyeagocha promised to focus on initiating policies that will improve welfare of police officers in the country when elected.

He described as unfortunate the dehumanizing working conditions of police officers in Nigeria especially within the rank and file and promised to make a case for improved pay, barrack accommodation, allowances and other welfare packages.

According to him;”Police is the most abused and misused among Nigeria’s security agencies. The police deserve to be accorded respect, dignity, good welfare packages and accommodation.

“I shall through legislative advocacy ensure that the budget of the Police Service Commission is placed among the first line charge in budget allocation because such will enable the Commission to be more effective in improving the welfare of police officers in Nigeria”.

He added that when there is improved welfare for police officers, there will be effective service delivery especially in providing adequate security for lives and property of the citizens.

Onyeagocha later charged police officers to ensure they discharge their duties within the ambit of the law. 

In his reaction, the leader of the group, Dan Okere thanked Onyeagocha for receiving them and promised to mobilize their members within Owerri zone to vote for him.

He described Onyeagocha as the most qualified and the best choice for Owerri zone.

Okere expressed confidence on Onyeagocha’s capacity and  prayed to God to grant him victory in the election
