The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has lauded the leadership and members of the National Assembly for the passage of the Police Trust Fund Bill.
This is contained in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday by the Force Spokesman, DCP Frank Mba.
The IGP expressed hope that with the passage of the Bill and the eventual signing into law by the President, the federal government will be laying a solid foundation for the future of an effective and efficient structure for policing the Country.
He also said the passage was timely as concerted efforts are being made at all levels to overcome issues of armed banditry, kidnapping and other heinous crimes across the country.
The IGP thanked all stakeholders that helped in mobilizing support for the passage of the Bill, especially, the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Human Rights Groups, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), the media, the traditional rulers Council of Nigeria amongst others.
It is expected that when the Bill is signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, the challenges of inadequate equipment, poor infrastructure, inadequate training and other issues will be addressed.
