Fayemi: Police personnel must be well-paid to be efficient 


Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State said policemem must be well-paid to allow in order for them to be motivated towards efficiency in the performance of their constitutional  functions.
He said this on Sunday during an interactive session with stakeholders on the recent #EndSARS protest in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
He expressed confidence that the judicial panel set up at the state and federal levels would tackle the issues and redress injustice done to the citizenry.

He stated: “I am a victim of police brutality myself. You can all recall what happened to me during my election of 2014.

“However, some policemen had also rendered good services to me, so not all of them are bad.

“Our police must be motivated to do well. Policemen must be well remunerated to be able to discharge their duties effectively.

“I commiserate with the families of those who paid the supreme price. We identify with them.

“The panels that we set up will look into the reasons behind the protest and how best to address the issues raised because #EndSARS protest had placed a moral burden on all of us that we must be vigilant.”
