Usman Baba, inspector-general of police (IGP), says the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is facing gross housing deficit as less than 10 percent of its personnel in barracks have proper accommodation.
Baba spoke on Thursday at the quarter four 2021 public private partnership units consultative (3PUCF) meeting organised by the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC) in Abuja.
The 3PUCF forum was initiated by the ICRC to provide a stakeholder engagement platform that will enhance knowledge and experience sharing among key PPP personnel in MDAs.
The IGP was represented by Zanna Ibrahim, deputy inspector-general (DIG), logistics and supply.
The IGP said a good living condition is important for optimal service delivery as housing is considered a fundamental physiological human need and the foundation on which to develop higher human motivation.
