Nollywood actor Williams Uchemba has called on President Buhari to issue an executive order to increase the monthly salary of police officers in Nigeria.
According to him, the amount the police officers make at the end of the month, tells the reason behind the massive corruption in the sector.
Uchemba added that the government should consider increasing their salaries from N32K to N200k to help reduce corruption on the roads.

Dear Mr President @muhammadubuhari Ever since I took this selfie of us I have not posted it but I decided to post it today so that you know I’m not speaking from afar. Firstly, the truth of the matter is that you are the Father and Number 1 citizen of this country Nigeria, and in every family, where there is chaos, disagreements or misunderstanding, the family looks up to the Father to resolve it as the head of the house. The last time we met, you assured us that you have the best interest of the Nigerian youth at heart, Sir there is no better time to show that the voice of the Nigerian youth matters than now. All we are asking for is an Executive Order from you to #EndSars because this is not the first time we’ve heard that it’s been dissolved. Secondly Sir, we need the Nigerian police System reformed. Thirdly, I don’t know if you know this but a police recruit makes N32k (less than $80) every month which does not justify but explains the immense corruption, extortion and bribery we see on the road everyday. We need their salaries increased to atleast N200k. Sir, all we ask is for you to come on TV and stand with us now more than ever.
