Gov Fubara tasks new Rivers CP on professionalism against crime

Governor of Rivers State, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, has charged the new Commissioner of Police in Rivers State, CP Olatunji Rilwan Disu, to bring to bear his depth of experience and be thoroughly professional in fighting crime and criminality in the state.

This comes as the governor reiterated his commitment to working tirelessly to ensure the peace and development of Rivers State as a leader for all.

Governor Fubara issued the charge on Monday when CP Disu paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House in Port Harcourt to inform the governor of his assumption of duties as the 45th Commissioner of Police in the state.

“We believe that your arrival, not just as a new person but somebody who already understands Rivers State, is going to be an added advantage for us. And I want you to be professional,” the governor told CP Disu.

He promised the commissioner the support and cooperation of the state government to strengthen the capacity of the police to discharge its responsibilities.

Fubara stated, “As you support the dreams and aspirations of our president on his Renewed Hope Agenda, know that the state government has a listening ear. The government will not request anything abnormal. The only thing the government will request is to fight crime justly, help to keep the peace, and be fair to all.”

In his address, the new Commissioner of Police, CP Olatunji Disu, assured of adopting a proactive policing strategy that will deploy efficient surveillance, foster mutual trust within the rank and file, and build trust with members of the public in protecting lives and property.

CP Disu further assured the governor that he would devote his time to the task of ensuring an atmosphere of peace in which Rivers people feel safer, making it difficult for criminals to operate.
