Nigeria Police Force, NPF, has been urged to live up to its responsibility of combating armed-robbery, child trafficking and advanced terrorism and insurgency in line with the philosophy of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Assistant Inspector General of Police and Commandant, Police Staff College Jos, Mbu Joseph Mbu, made the call during the graduation ceremony of 47 participants on Strategic Leadership and Command Course 2/ 2015 held at the Institute in Jos.
According to him, “the goal of the course therefore is to ensure that members of the force become more competent, confident and efficient in the art of modern policing. As strategic managers, care has been taken to ensure that this course prepares you for higher responsibilities whilst providing you with the necessary tools to understand and properly interpret government policies on matters affecting national security.
“Our sacred functions must not be compromised. There is need to remind you that the society we live in today has become very complex, infested with organised crimes ranging from armed-robbery to child trafficking, advanced terrorism/Insurgency, cyber crimes with criminals becoming more and more daring in their operations.
“This development has made the job of policing more challenging and tasting. I have no doubt that as you leave today; you are intellectually and professionally equipped and positioned to deal with these problems in all their ramifications.”
Mbu urged the officers not to be cowed and not in any way succumb to blackmail of intimidation but should defend their subordinates when they are doing the right thing and that they should respect human rights.
The AIG tasked the officers to collaborate with the locals, traditional rulers and members of the PCRC to fight crime in their various communities and urged them to be brave, hard working and transparent in carrying out their responsibility.
