The IGP explained that “This extension has become imperative to enable members of the public seamlessly key into the electronic platform initiative of the Nigeria Police Force Central Information System, NCIS.”
Arase, while directing all State Commands Commissioners of Police to ensure that nobody is exploited and extorted on account of revalidating tinted permit, firearms license, and Police character certificate, as revalidation is free of charge, warned that those who are yet to complete their automated licenses process are not subjected to unnecessary harassment and embarrassment by Policemen in their respective Commands.
