Campaigns: We’ll discharge our duties with clear conscience – Police 




 The Kwara state police command Thursday said it will

ensure a level playing field for all political parties in the state as they go about their electioneering campaigns ahead of 2023 general elections.

The command said irrespective of party affiliation, religion or tribe, the police would discharge their duties with clear conscience and fear of God. 

Addressing his maiden press conference in Ilorin, the new Commissioner of Police, Mr Paul Odama, said the police is apolitical.

He added that: “The people of the state as a whole are our constituency, hence we promise to discharge our duties with clear conscience and fear of God.”

Odama stated that the police in conjunction with other sister security agencies have concluded plans to emplace adequate security for all political parties to make their campaigns free of intimation in all parts of the state.

“The command is not unaware that, officially, political party

campaigns have started and as such, the command in conjunction with other sister services have concluded plans to emplace adequate security for all political parties to make their campaigns free of any intimidation across the length and breadth of the state,” he said.

Odama also said he is in the state to work to sustain  the prevailing peace and security and asked criminally- minded persons to retrace their steps or relocate from the state.
