President Jokowi Lauds TNI, Polri for Speeding Up Vaccination
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo Tuesday (03/01) attended the 2022 Leadership Meeting of the Indonesian National Defense Force (TNI) and the Indonesian National Police (Polri) at TNI Headquarters in Cilangkap, East Jakarta.
In his directives, President Jokowi expressed appreciation to all ranks of TNI-Polri for their support to assist the Government in managing disasters, handling COVID-19 pandemic, and accelerating COVID-19 vaccination drive throughout Indonesia.
“I would like to express my highest gratitude and appreciation to all ranks of TNI-Polri for being earnest in carrying out their responsibilities and obligations including carrying out humanitarian mission, namely supporting the Government in managing disasters and handling COVID-19 pandemic. And especially I would like to express my gratitude [to all ranks of TNI-Polri] for their support on the ground to boost COVID-19 vaccination drive,” the President said.
On that occasion, the Head of State also highlighted the importance of national discipline, adding that, the discipline possessed by TNI-Polri ranks is different from civil discipline so that TNI-Polri must continue to improve and become a good role model to the community.
“I order TNI and Polri ranks to be able to set an example to the community (in terms of discipline),” President Jokowi said.
Furthermore, the President also reminded attendees that the discipline of TNI-Polri is limited by the rules set by the leaders. Therefore, the rule must continue to be upheld so that national discipline can be maintained. (BPMI of Presidential Secretariat /AIT) (AP/MUR)
