Inspector-General of Police(IGP) Mohammed Adamu has reaffirmed his commitment to the Federal Government’s efforts at curbing fraud, enhancing transparency and accountability in government.
The IGP made this known during a courtesy call on him by the Auditor-General for the Federation(AGF), Mr. Anthony Ayine last Friday at the Force Headquarters, Louis Edet House, Abuja.
This was contained in a statement signed by Deputy Commissioner of Police(DCP) Frank Mba, Police Public Relations Officer(PPRO).
The high-powered courtesy visit of top management personnel was informed by the need for both institutions to collaborate, foster mutual understanding and build strong relationships for the purpose of promoting accountability and transparency, which are cornerstones for socio-economic development of any society.
Mr. Ayine expressed the critical importance of auditing to the equally indispensable role of the police in ensuring good governance in the country.
He noted that proper auditing of police armoury and other logistics will reveal the true status of supplies and logistics requirement of the force and no doubt help to facilitate proper planning and budgeting at any point in time.
He commended the IGP for the excellent work he is doing and applauded him for the professionalism and people-oriented policing approaches.
In his remarks, the IGP, while concurring with the AGF on the importance of auditing, assured of the readiness of the Police under his watch to cooperate with the AGF in ensuring accountable and transparent processes in the management of equipment and resources of the Force.
