President Muhammadu Buhari says he will not tolerate any irregularities or extortion of money from unemployed Nigerians in the coming recruitment into the police.

President Buhari said a situation whereby applicants have to pay bribes before being accepted into the police in the past was totally unacceptable warning officers in charge of recruitment and training in the Police to be above board and eschew every form of extortion and underhand dealing.

Speaking at a meeting with officials of the Ministry of Police Affairs and the Police Service Commission in the Presidential Villa, the President also directed the Inspector-General of Police to prune down the number of policemen attached to dignitaries, and redeploy all policemen withdrawn from that role to regular police duties.

On the stagnation of policemen on a rank for many years, the President counselled the Police Service Commission to review the  current structure of the police, and make recommendations on how the problem can be solved to  boost the morale of serving policemen.
