We hear that the Policemen who are being owed some arrears will be going on strike on March 28, the day the Presidential election will be conducted.
The aggrieved officers claimed to be owed their promotion entitlement which has been pending for two years. They also claim that over a hundred out of 15,000 of them being owed, retired in 2014 without receiving their due.
Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba had made previous commitments that the Police will work out a modality to clear all the arrears owed to officers. This did not appeal to the aggrieved men.
If this threat is carried out , there may be a huge security challenge during the elections as the involvement of the military is still a subject of argument.
