Wife of the president, Mrs. Aishat Buhari has applauded the Nigeria Police Force and the Police Officers Wives Association, POWA, for providing quality education to the citizenry.
Mrs. Buhari, who gave the commendation in Abuja yesterday while declaring open a quiz competition organised by the Nigeria Police for some secondary schools in the country, also lauded the police for ensuring that children achieved discipline and obedience in police schools.
The quiz competition is part of activities lined up to mark this year’s Police Week.
Represented by wife of the vice president, Mrs. Dolapo Osibanjo, Mrs. Buhari further solicited supports of corporate and private organisations in assisting the Nigeria Police Force, even as she appreciated the efforts of the police in putting together a week towards intellectual development of the children.
According to a statement issued by the force spokesperson, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, Mrs. Buhari sees the police week as giant stride to enable the children achieve discipline and obedience to institutions.
Earlier in her speech, POWA president and wife of the Inspector General of Police, Mrs. Agharase Arase expressed happiness having listened to the children in their performances, saying with this things would get better.
She also said before now, POWA was building shops but today there was a paradigm shift as the association now builds children’s intellectual capacity to face future challenges.
Highlight of the day was the quiz competition where Police Secondary School, Ukana in Akwa Ibom State won the highest price.
The Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, represented by DIG Dan Azumi Doma, called on the participating schools to compete fairly.
