The wind of change in the Nigeria Police Force received greater impetus with the signing on Tuesday of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Nigeria Police and the German Development Corporation.
The Inspector General of Police, Solomon E. Arase, signed on behalf of the Nigeria Police Force, while the country representative of GIZ, Dr. Thomas Kirsch, signed on behalf of the German Corporation.
The German Ambassador to Nigeria, Ambassador Michael Zenner, who led the delegation to Force Headquarters, promised continuous cooperation of the German Government with the Nigeria Police Force.
The MoU amongst other things will advance the training and skill upgrade of Police personnel, support Police reforms and border security.
Arase thanked the German team for supporting the Police.
He remarked that the MoU is a fall out of President Muhammandu Buhari’s visit to Germany few weeks ago to further strengthen the Police and other security services capability to decapitate insurgency and other criminal vices in the country.
He also used the occasion to assure the German Development Corporation of Nigeria Police’s readiness to work with it to achieve a robust synergy with the people and government of Germany.
Vice President Mohammed Namadi Sambo has commended Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State for building a Police Heliport for the Police Command in the state, which he described as a feat that would step up efforts of the force in providing security and protection to the citizenry and ensuring law and order in the state.
