Minister of Internal Affairs, Hon. Edward A. Soloku called on the Inspector General of Police, Richard Moigbeh to work with him to depoliticize the police. According to him, the police should not be seen to be serving a political party, but every citizen devoid of the political party they belong to.
Hon. Soloku called on all agencies to ensure that they respect time and the law in the discharge of their duties. He said they should all be committed to serve the general public. This he said will help them actualize the vision of President Bio and Sierra Leone at large.
He assured the outgoing minister of his safety just like any other Sierra Leonean if he lives within the ambit of the law.
