“The Police, as an institution, recognises the importance of respecting religious practices and cultural traditions and the need to promote the principles of tolerance, understanding, and unity within our diverse society”.

As the holy month of Ramadan begins, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, has restated the commitment of the Force to the provision of adequate security for all across the country.

The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement in Abuja on Monday, said Egbetokun gave the assurance while extending greetings to all Muslims at the start of Ramadan.
“The Force extends the warmest greetings from the Nigeria Police Force to all Muslim Ummah across the country on the Ramadan season, a time of reflection, spiritual growth, and communal solidarity which holds great significance for millions of Muslim faithful around the world.

“During this holy period, the Nigeria Police reaffirm its commitment to ensuring the safety, security, and well-being of all citizens. The Police, as an institution, recognises the importance of respecting religious practices and cultural traditions and the need to promote the principles of tolerance, understanding, and unity within our diverse society,” the statement read.

The IGP urged the Muslim Ummah to embrace the spirit of compassion, generosity, and forgiveness that defines Ramadan.

He called for all to unite, support one another, foster a sense of harmony, and build stronger bonds of friendship and cooperation in the holy month and beyond.

The Inspector-General of Police, while urging members of the public to embrace the community policing concept, charged Nigerians to support the NPF’s efforts to maintain peace and order throughout the month of Ramadan.

The IGP equally urged Muslims to cherish the blessings of Ramadan and strive to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
