Enugu State governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi yesterday disclosed that Nigeria Police will be the best in the World, if given adequate support to function optimally.
He spoke in Enugu at a Security Summit and Award Presentation organized by the Police-Community Relations Committee (PCRC) and DSV Global Concepts Nigeria.
Ugwuanyi, who was represented by the Senior Special Adviser on Security Matters, Brig.-Gen. Fred Eze (rtd), noted that, notwithstanding the daunting challenges facing the police and its personnel, it had continued to perform with minimal resources.
“I have worked with our police officers even outside the country and have seen that our police officers and men are well dedicated and loyal to our fatherland and the positive image of Nigeria.
“Nigeria Police will be the best in the whole world given the necessary support to succeed.
“If you consider the population of the country as well as inadequacies in logistics and supplies to the police; you will see that the Nigeria Police is doing excellently well,’’ Ugwuanyi said.
The governor noted that the state government had supported the police, adding that the government would not relent in its support to ensure that ‘Enugu state remains the safest state in the country’.
“The state government has donated vehicles and other logistics support to the police and will continue to do more to ensure that the state remains a reference point for safety and hospitality in the country,’’ he said.
The governor, however, thanked the organisers of the summit and award given to him as “Best Police Supportive Governor”.
