The newly posted Commissioner of Police in Plateau State, Edward Chuka Egbuka, on Friday, assured that the personnel in the Command will be “polite and firm” while enforcing the guidelines spelled out by both governments at Federal and State levels, aimed at containing the spread of the coronavirus.
Egbuka gave the assurance during the handing over ceremony to usher him in as the new CP of the State Capital.
According to him: ” The Police is in the front line in tackling the challenges of coronavirus.
“In our enforcement in tackling the pandemic, I implore officers and men to be polite and firm in dealing with the public.
“With good conduct and professionalism, we shall once again defeat a common enemy seeking to ravage the entire globe”, Egbuka said.
On his part, the outgoing CP, Isaac Akinmoyede, said he is leaving Plateau on a happy note, having ensured that the fragile peace being witnessed in the State was maintained throughout his tenure.
Akinmoyede recounted peculiar events that would have thrown the State into another round of crisis, like the 2019 general elections, but applauded personnel of the Command for their hard work which ensured hitch-free polls.
He encouraged officers to extend the same corporation given to him to the new CP, adding that Egbuka is a “diligent and dedicated” officer.
