“Please contact me only if your state PRO is not able to help you,” said the spokesperson for the Nigerian Police Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a post on social media. This statement has prompted a mixed response from Nigerians, who question the efficacy of the police force and the role of public relations officers (PROs) in general.
Some users have pointed out that the police often fail to respond to requests for help, leaving many people feeling frustrated and unsafe.
Nigerians have been reacting to the recent statement by the Police Force Public Relations Officer (PRO). While some Nigerians felt that this was a positive step towards improving police-citizen relations, others were skeptical of the ability of state PROs to effectively respond to inquiries. Many also pointed out that the lack of accountability and transparency within the police force was a key issue that needed to be addressed.
