Nigerian Police Force Reacts To The Alleged Non-Payment Of Election Allowance To Police Officers

Nigerian police said on Saturday that all allowances to their officers for handling security during last Saturday's presidential and parliamentary elections have been paid.


The Force's public relations officer, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, announced this while denying allegations that some police officers have yet to receive their allowances.

He said: “The Nigerian police want clarification on the allegation of failure to pay election allowances to police officers who participated in the elections on Saturday, February 25, 2023.

"The Force would like to strongly confirm that it has paid all its employees' election allowances, as the order to pay all police officers' allowances has been issued and all deposits have been made in the respective depository banks (DMBs) for subsequent payments to the bank police officers with them.

“However, it is surprising to read the news that some police officers have been denied payment of their accumulated allowances, and such delays are not welcomed by the force." In this memo, the Force urges all officers and men who have not received election compensation payments to raise these issues with their respective banks to ensure that the process of resolving these issues is expedited. The issue of responsibility for the delay is accelerating.

"It should be reaffirmed that non-payment problems should not be blamed on the force as the Police Accounts and Budget Office has taken action and is making preparations for a second round of payments." week next.


"We're not ignorant of the antics of some troublemakers peddling bogus posts through their paid bloggers in order to drag the Force into the mud over flimsy issues."

“The Nigerian Police remain committed to prioritizing the supreme welfare of our officers and men and leaving them with a better standard of living and better welfare.”
