Tinubu Commissions 169 Cadet Officers into Police Force, Charges them on Ethical Standards

"Our actions must exemplify the highest ethical standards as we safeguard the rule of law. Together, we embody the principles that define a trusted and responsible Police Force,”.

President Bola Tinubu said this during the Passing-Out ceremony of graduands of the Fifth Regular Course of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil in Kano State on Saturday. Represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima, the Nigerian leader reiterated his administration’s resolve to implement a comprehensive approach to combat the security challenges in the country.

While commissioning the 169 cadet officers, the President urged them to always hold fast to the core virtues of integrity, honesty, and compassion while upholding the human rights of the citizens.

The President who expressed confidence in their ability to fit into Federal Government’s agenda urged them to stay vigilant, united, and focused on the ideals that make the Nigeria Police Force an exemplar of honour and integrity.

“May you all embark on this journey with courage and determination, knowing that the nation needs your patriotic services. Stay vigilant, stay united, and stay focused on the ideals that make our Police Force an exemplar of honor and integrity,” President Tinubu maintained.

Tinubu said “this administration is committed to implementing effective measures to combat the security challenges in Nigeria and our synergy is the surest ticket to that destiny. We are implementing a comprehensive approach that focuses on key areas.

“First, we are investing in our law enforcement agencies to enhance their capabilities and effectiveness. We are offering extra resources, training, and equipment to bolster our Police Force and security agencies.”

Some of these approaches include investing in training and provision of equipment for security agencies, enhancing intelligence, and executing social and economic programmes aimed at fostering inclusiveness, social unity, and economic prospects.

President Bola Tinubu says his government will make adequate provisions to enhance the operational capability of security and law enforcement agencies as well as the welfare of personnel.

This is in the renewed drive to address security and related concerns across the country, he added.

The commandant of the Academy, AIG Sadiq Abubakar, said 169 cadet officers completed the training and are ready to face the challenges ahead.

He said the graduates have been groomed not only in terms of character but also academically and professionally.

AIG Sadiq Abubakar praised the federal government’s dedication to revitalising the academy through infrastructure development and essential logistical support.

The ceremony was attended by Acting IGP Kayode Egbetokun and heads of various services.
