Lagos – The Champions Youth Development Association of Nigeria (CHYDAN), on Sunday commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his surprise visit to assess the level of decay at the Nigeria Police College, Ikeja.
This is contained in a statement signed by Alhaji Umar Ismail, President of the association, which was made available to newsmen in Lagos.
Ismail said that such visit was the first by a sitting president since the establishment of the school.
He said the visit was an indication that the Federal Government was ready to address the problems facing the Nigeria Police and the nation’s security challenges.
According to him, we are highly impressed with the visit of Mr President to the Nigeria Police College, Ikeja.
“Nobody for once, thought that Mr President could personally come and inspect every department of the college.
“Since the establishment of the college over 70 years ago, no sitting president has visited the institution.
“Addressing security challenges in Nigeria in 2013 will be one of the ways through which the president can build the confidence of Nigerians.
“We do pray and hope that he will touch other sectors, including power and job creations,’’ Ismail said.
He also commended the Inspector-General Mohammed Abubakar, for his efforts to reform the police and urged him to take adequate care of his men.
Ismail advised the youth to maintain peace and avoid being used as instrument of crisis by some people who never meant well for the country. (NAN)
