The Nigerian police force has recently appointed Idowu Owohunwa as the new Police Commissioner for Lagos State.

This appointment comes at a crucial time for the state, as the 2023 general elections approach. Owohunwa, who is a seasoned police officer with over 20 years of experience, has been tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that the upcoming elections are free, fair, and credible.

One of the main reasons for Owohunwa’s appointment is to tackle the issue of election rigging in Lagos State.

In recent years, there have been several reports of electoral malpractice in the state, which has led to a loss of confidence in the electoral process.

The Nigerian police force is aware of this issue and is taking steps to ensure that the 2023 general elections are conducted in a transparent and fair manner.

As the new Police Commissioner for Lagos State, Owohunwa is expected to lead a team of officers that will be responsible for maintaining law and order during the electoral process.

He will also be working closely with other security agencies and stakeholders to ensure that the elections are conducted in a peaceful and orderly manner.

One of the key strategies that Owohunwa will be implementing is the deployment of police officers to polling units across the state.

This will ensure that any attempts at electoral malpractice are identified and dealt with in a timely manner. Additionally, Owohunwa will also be working closely with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the electoral process is in line with international best practices.

Another important aspect of Owohunwa’s role as Police Commissioner is the protection of the rights of citizens. During the electoral process, it is important that citizens are able to exercise their right to vote without fear of intimidation or harassment. Owohunwa will be working closely with other security agencies to ensure that citizens are able to vote freely and without fear of reprisal.

In addition to his role as Police Commissioner, Owohunwa is also expected to play an important role in community policing. Community policing is an approach that focuses on building trust and cooperation between the police and the community. By working closely with community leaders, Owohunwa will be able to identify and address issues that are of concern to the community. This will help to improve the overall security situation in Lagos State.

The appointment of Idowu Owohunwa as the new Police Commissioner for Lagos State is a positive move, indicating President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to ensuring a fair and transparent presidential election.
