Police, UK Govt. Pledge To Strengthen Ties
The Nigeria Police Force will sustain and improve on the existing relationship with the British Government, Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba, said.
Speaking when he received the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr Andrew Pocock at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, the IGP noted that the Nigeria Police Force had benefited immensely from trainings offered by the British authorities and the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) in the areas of capacity building and development, community policing and other core policing issues.
Abba reaffirmed the commitment of his administration to the greater improvement of the existing ties between the Nigeria Police and the British Government.
Pocock had stated that he was at the Force Headquarters to congratulate the IGP on his new appointment and explore ways of thwarting insecurity.
“In view of the present challenging times, there is a need not just for a continuation but an improvement on the existing mutually beneficial relationship between UK and the Nigeria Police Force,” he said.
His country is among a number of foreign nations that have pledged to support Nigeria fight rising terror.
