Abba vowed to devote considerable energy to changing the attitude of the rank and file of the Police. He said he would take measures to change the way Police officers relate with each other and the way they relate with the people they serve. “We need to have a change of attitude. When we do that, we will see new Police that are mindful of values – values of hard work, loyalty and ethics,” he said.
