The Inspector General of Police, IG Usman Baba Alkali has urged Police officers in the country not to look outside the force while searching for life partners.This, he said is to strengthen the service and build a good working relationship among officers.
During a one-day working visit to the Niger State Police Command in Minna, the Police IG counselled officers to put aside the idea of looking for good husbands and wives outside and start searching inwards.
According to him, ” …we have some handsome single men and beautiful ladies among us. I would like to advise us to start taking our wives and husbands from our colleagues to buttress our already existing working relationship to that of full family affairs.
”By doing so, the good working relationship existing among the personnel will go just beyond the normal office relationship and will help in the improvement of confidence and harmonious relationship. It will also go a long way in providing courage and strength to our service.
“I think it will be a welcome idea if we start looking inwards to see how we can build a better family here than going outside looking for a good wife.”
