It appears the Nigerian Police force is getting a serious makeover with the kind of police officers they are putting forward to represent them-especially in the public eye- these days. Photos of one officer Aliyu Giwa has been trending online for hours now.
Aliyu whose Instagram handle is @aleeygiwa is followed by over 10,000 people whom he preaches the new positive gospel of the Police Force to. With almost every Instagram post, Aliyu writes about his love for his job and encourages Nigerians to see Police Officers as friends.
In IG post, Aliyu wrote: ”I love my job… Honestly been a police-officer teaches me reality, teaches me of life, shows me the Good, Bad and ugly of human nature… I adore the fact that each day that passes by… der’s someone new to help, Someone new to save perhaps Or sometimes I’m too late… and that too is life! I meet many many people throughout my daily tasks Some like me, some respect me, some disrespect me, inshort Some by mere seeing a policeman they just wish I’d burn in hell!! Most tolerate me and realize that I am there for a reason… It’s my job! Been a cop teaches me to count my daily blessings! To be thankful for what I have because so many have so little & It teaches me to value every minute (becuase I see what you can’t stand), to seize the day and save the day, and find that life within it!! This same job teaches me a love of other people… To look beyond myself as an OLOPA(policeofficer) and walk in other’s shoes. Have I mentioned yet… How much I love my job and the people around me? ? ! ! Because if I haven’t…I really should… Because I do!! #PoliceIsYourFriend #Police #Ekelebe #Dansanda #Olopa #NigeriaPoliceForce #NPF”
