Provide selfless leadership, IGP tasks POWA executive

The acting Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has tasked President of the Police Officers Wives Association (POWA) and her executive to strive towards providing selfless and purposeful leadership that will strengthen the association towards sustaining the attainment of its lofty goals.

The Police boss handed the charge when he received the president, executive and members of POWA during a courtesy visit to the Force Headquarters, Abuja.

He congratulated the new POWA President, Hajiya Hajara Alkali on her assumption of duty, noting that “POWA is an association that assists in stabilising our home front as we, your husbands, step out of our homes in the service of the nation. It has evolved over the years to become a unique body that binds the families of the serving officers together.

“Aside championing the interests and welfare of wives and families of police officers, the association is also a strong empowerment body that embarks on the projects that are known to have been adding value to the lives of families of officers.

“Beyond these, POWA is a bridge of friendship between the Force, the military and other sister security agencies.”

Speaking further, the IGP said: “I do appreciate that the task ahead of you will be enormous. I, however, have no doubts that you and your team have what it takes to lift POWA to the next level.

“I have listened attentively to you remarks and I am highly delighted about your new vision for the association. As you pursue your leadership agenda, you can always count on me and members of the Force Management Team to support you.”

Earlier, the POWA president said, “I must state clearly that the strength of the Police is the Police family…Therefore, my administration has decided to focus on the Police family, which is the backbone of the entire Police Force, and as you all know, wives are the gatekeepers of the home front so our husbands can keep the ‘work front’.
