Yuletide: Former IGP Arase begs Nigerians, offers security tips

Ahead of Christmas celebrations, Chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC) and former Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has called on Nigerians to take the issue of security seriously.

The former Police boss has also urged Nigerians to report any suspicious incidents or crimes to law enforcement officers in order to nip the problem in the bud.

Arase spoke at the grand opening of Tastia Restaurant located on 6th Avenue, Gwarinpa, Abuja. The restaurant has about six branches across the nation’s capital.

Arase said: “The police are always there to ensure that businesses are safe. At the same time, members of the public owe it as a duty to always say something when they see something.

“We expect members of the public this season to give information to law enforcement agencies so that they’ll be able to deal with any security threats. This business, for instance, is well located, and Tastia has done a lot.

“I expect business owners to have certain tips when setting up businesses. They must know the security agencies around them. They should know the Divisional Police Officer, Divisional Crime Officer. That way, you tend to connect.

“The more criminal elements see them around you, the more it gives people the reassurance that everywhere is safe. I’ve known Tastia Restaurant for a long time, and I know they’ve taste. It takes a lot of guts to be able to invest in something that gives joy.
Chief Executive Officer of Tastia, Kester Agwu, said customers will get the best, as more continental and intercontinental cuisines are available for everyone.

“We’re giving the people what they need. We’re doing our best to give people what they need. We’ll always give customers the best and the best of services,” he said.
