The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, PSC, Solomon Arase on Saturday, asked Nigerians to be conscious of their security.
His call comes just a few weeks before this year’s Christmas celebrations.
Arase, who made the call at the grand opening of Tastia Restaurant situated at 6th Avenue, Gwarinpa, Abuja, also asked Nigerians to play their part in securing the nation by reporting suspicious movements to law enforcement agents for prompt action.
The PSC chairman who is also the former Inspector General of Police said, “The police are always there to ensure that businesses are safe. At the same time, members of the public owe it 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 will 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 have known Tastia Restaurant for a long time, and I know they have taste. It takes a lot of guts to be able to invest in something that gives joy.”
