The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has ordered the extension of the deadline for the on-going re-validation of Tinted car glass Permit, Police Character Clearance and Firearm Licence from March 18 to May 31.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Force Spokesperson, acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, in Abuja on Wednesday.

It said that the extension became imperative to enable members of the public to seamlessly key into the electronic platform initiative of the Nigeria Police Force Central Information System (NCIS).

The statement stated that Arase directed all State Commands Commissioners of Police to ensure that nobody was exploited and extorted in carrying out the exercise.

It said that revalidation was free of charge and that those yet to complete the process should not be subjected to unnecessary harassment by policemen.

The statement reassured the public of the commitment of the Force to provide security to the citizens of the country, always.

It further enjoined them to continue to support and assist the Police in its constitutional task of safeguarding the nation.

    Inasmuch as I see no compelling reason for this added bureaucracy, May 31 is too close given that not all the factory fitted tinted glass car owners are computer literate and will have to enlist the help of third parties and this takes time. We need innovations in our public administration not duplication of bureaucracy.
