THE Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, has said that the platform of the Nigeria Police Cooperative Multi-Purpose Society Limited launched on Monday will not only strengthen the accountability process within the society, it shall aid the ease of doing business by the contributors, particularly, in relation to accessing the services of the Cooperative Society.
Speaking at the launch of the platform, Adamu noted that “it take us much closer to a level of end-to-end automation”.
“I am similarly, delighted to note that the application being launched today was developed at the Innovation Lab of Africa Prudential Plc, an indigenous digital technology firm and Capital Market operator. The indigenisation of this process is in furtherance to the Federal Government’s Policy of enhancing local contents in ICT acquisition.
“I have been assured that appropriate security measures have been emplaced by the software developers to protect the application from intrusive activities that could threaten the integrity of the data base and compromise the personal and classified information of the co-operators.
“I have additionally received confirmation that the Police Cooperative Society shall fully migrate its operations to the new Portal immediately after today’s launching,” he said.
According to him, this process will help to automate savings withdrawal, contribution management, loans administration, member management, automated reporting, and inventory management.
“In the long-run, the automation process being advanced today will strengthen the status of the Police Cooperative Society as a leading cooperative movement providing distinctive and innovative welfare services to its members through the utilisation of ICT solutions,” he added.
He urged all members to embrace the change within the Police Cooperative Society as, henceforth, no longer will police personnel be exposed to the risk of travelling from their various commands and Formations to process their loan applications, savings withdrawals, or get their contributions balances from the Cooperative Headquarters in Lagos. All these services will be done just by the press of the buttons on their computers or Mobile devices.
He commended Dasuki Galandanchi and his team for their foresight, dedication and innovation which have brought this dream to fruition and challenged them to sustain the tempo and continue to drive his commitment to the advancement of the welfare of personnel of the Nigeria Police through enhanced service delivery by the Nigeria Police Cooperative Society.
The Police Cooperative is a welfare-oriented Cooperative Society that was established in 1977 by Force Order No. 130, to cater for the welfare needs of personnel of the Nigeria Police Force and their families. It is the largest cooperative society in Africa with well over 300,000 membership.
