A reform committee, according to her , had been constituted  to work on 18 key targets that would modernize the Nigeria Police Force, as well as pave the way for  a better  retirement life for personnel.

 She said, “”I’m sure you may all be aware we have had eight reform papers since 1999 but none has been implemented to a satisfactory level. But  we have to at this point, put our heads together, spoke with one voice, to be very clear about our priorities. Looking  at the low hanging fruits, the reform will happen across every area of our operations,” she stated.
