Inspector-General of Police, Hafiz Ringim and the unmerited National Honour, CFR.

Finally, the  2011 National Honours Awards has come and gone. All roads led to the International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja in honour of the  Nigerians who made the 2011 National Honours list. Inspector General of Police, Mr. Hafiz Ringim was   conferred with the  Commander of the Federal Republic (CFR)  Award by President Goodluck Jonathan.

The National Awards were meant  to honour Nigerians who have rendered service to the benefit of the nation.  We live in a Country where  kidnappings  and brutal killings  have  become the order of the week in select parts of the Country. Citizens now sleep with one eye open due to insecurity.

 The bombing of the Police Headquarters  is still fresh in our minds.  We are also aware of the  bombing of the United Nations building in Abuja.   How long will we fold our hands and watch innocent lives being wasted?

 It might interest us to know that a few days ago, the American Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) ranked  Nigeria fourth place in its global ranking in Hostage taking and kidnapping.  They also  identified Nigeria as the greatest threat to cyber security in Africa.

Other countries are entitled to their opinions about us but, what do we Nigerians   think of our own National Security ? Is it any better than what it used to be prior to IGP Ringim’s appointment?

The conferment on the Police I.G Hafiz Ringim has left many Nigerians confused. What outstanding contribution has Mr. Ringim brought to the Police Force?

 Mr. President Sir, in what way does the  I.G merit this National Honour?
