A certified officer: The Nigeria Police University, Wudil-Kano to open this September


by Chi Ibe

President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the commencement of operation for the Nigeria Police University, Wudil, which is now scheduled to open in September. If its take off is successful, it will become the first police university in Africa.

The Minister of Police Affairs, Caleb Olubolade and the acting Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Abubakar, hinted the press while on an inspection tour of the university project situated at the premises of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano. According to a Punch report, the university will accommodate the administrative building with over 50 offices, including the vice-chancellor’s office, senate chamber, various conference halls, hostels and faculty buildings among others.

Abubakar stated that the force was facing the greatest challenges of its life, which was why it had become imperative for policemen to be more professional in their duties. The aim of the new university is to prepare the police to adequately stand on their own academically and compete with their counterparts globally.

He warned the students that the era of people following shortcuts after failing their examinations to continue and even graduate as police officers was over. “This time around, you have to pass your examinations because if you dare fail, you will be sent back to your village.”

He urged them to demonstration excellence and professionalism without harassing or manhandling the ordinary citizen.
