President Muhammadu has declared that the eyes of the nation and global community are on the Nigeria Police Force and all law enforcement agencies.

The President stated this on Monday when he commissioned the newly-procured NPF operational assets, vehicles, crowd control, and anti-riot equipment at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

President Buhari who on Friday briefed by the Inspector General of Police Alkali Baba on the operation order and action plan for the polls expressed confidence in the level of preparedness of the police for the exercise.

By the same token told the police chief that his expectation of the security agency to provide adequate security that would foster a credible exercise remains high.

The President further stated that he has significantly accomplished plans to reposition the police and expects that the incoming administration will sustain his initiative.

Some of the operational assets commissioned include a hundred and twenty-seven operational vehicles.

Similarly, a large catchment of arms, ammunition, and riot control agents such as tear gas, tasers, stun guns, pepper sprays, bulletproof vests, helmets, and other personal protective equipment procured by the Police will also be commissioned by the President.
