Retired Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG Joseph Mbu, yesterday, said he is retiring from the Police as a fulfilled officer as he was given the privilege to head a number of formations and commands in the force, even as he urged the Police officers to shun petty jealousy and witch hunt in Nigerian Police Force.
Mbu, who also stated that he is leaving the Police with his shoulders and head high, said: “I am proud to be a policeman, to retire as a policeman, and if there is reincarnation, I make bold to say, I will still be a policeman.”
He noted this while delivering his speech at a pulling out ceremony held in his honour at the Police Staff College, Jos, the Plateau State capital. He added:
“In December 1985, we passed out from this Police Staff College as Cadets before the establishment of the Police Academy permanent site Kano, today is the time to dance, a day of fulfillment for me because we started the journey in January 1985 with 96 officers, and as at June 30, 2016, we were 48 left. Some are presently Assistant Commissioners of Police, some Deputy Commissioners of Police and others Commissioners of Police. By God’s grace and mercy, I’m retiring in the IGP category in good health.
“I am leaving the Police Staff College Jos; 10 times better than I met it on October 5, 2015. I want to appreciate my bosses, IGPs Ogbonnaya Onovo and Mohammed Abubakar for their mentorship and continuous support throughout my career.”
Mbu also called on the media to stop visiting the sins of an erring officer, urging the media to see police as partners in progress and encourage them to carry out their duties effectively.
