Raise Police’s Salary from N43,000 to N100,000 to Stop Corruption, Oluwo Urges Buhari

The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has asked Nigerians to stop blaming corrupt police officers should the Federal Government fail to address the issue of minimum wage and salary increase.

Oba Akanbi, who also requested the Federal Government to increase the minimum wage for members of the Nigeria Police to N100,000, added that when this is done, citizens can courageously challenge bribe taking police officers.

Oluwo of Iwo

The lowest ranking in the Nigerian police system is Constable. According to NP’s department of finance and administration, a police constable takes home an amount below N45,000 monthly.

The Oluwo made this known on Wednesday in Ibadan, Oyo State, during a one-day town hall meeting organised by the Police Service Commission (PSC).

While explaining that in many advanced countries, policing was the envy of everybody, the traditional ruler charged the Federal Government to encourage Nigerians to join the force through more funding.
