 On Tuesday August 2, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, hosted the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris and his management team at the Headquarters of the country’s apex bank.

During that meeting, he made an appeal for the resuscitation of the Inter-Agency Committee to improve on the logistic needs of the Nigeria Police.

Emefiele who recalled how that the CBN and the Deposit Money Banks collaborated with the Police on in the past, is keen on resuscitation of the committee, saying it will help in bringing forth, far-reaching recommendations on possible areas of partnership between the banks and the police.

The CBN Governor and the Acting IGP are seemingly on the same page in this regard as, Idris said he was at the CBN to request the Bank to collaborate with the Force in providing logistical support to the Police to enable it perform its mandate of securing lives and property.
