The outgoing  Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has stressed the need for the federal government to increase funding to the Nigeria police to enable it to perform better.

The governor maintained that any government that cannot protect life and property, fight crime and makes people live happily does not have any business in governance.

Speaking Friday in the Rumuepirikom community during the inauguration of the Police Tactical Operations Centre in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Governor Wike said his administration understood such import and had unrelentingly provided necessary logistics to the state police command.

Such support, he noted, had strengthened the capacity of police officers to do their best in keeping the crime rate at its lowest level in Rivers State.

“Ours is to provide the necessary logistics and allow the police and other sister agencies to carry out their function. When you provide an enabling and conducive environment, obviously officers and men of the security agencies will put in their best.

“I am sure that when the tactical team, as the CP said, moves in here, the environment alone will allow them to put in their best,” he said.
