It’s official: Police IG appoints Force Gender Adviser

by James Sambo

In a bid to consolidate on the gains made by the Nigeria Police Force, in stemming the tide of violence against women and girls in the country, the Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Suleiman has re-constituted the Force Gender Unit.

In this light, the IGP has appointed CSP Olabisi Kolawole as the Force Gender Adviser to head the newly established unit.

Among other things, the Force Gender Unit is expected to ensure the implementation of a robust capacity building plan for officers in gender related issues, ensure the inclusion of gender training in Nigeria Police curriculum at all levels, see to the establishment of Gender Desk officers in Police Formations nationwide and enhance the already existing collaboration with other stakeholders in the area of gender equality.

Observers are of the opinion that this is a laudable idea but express cautious optimism on how these deliverables will be implemented.
