President Bola Tinubu has declared April 7 as a day set aside for the police in Nigeria “ National Police Day”.

This is the high point of a speech read by vice President Kashim who represented the president  at the maiden award and commendations event organized by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in Abuja on Monday night.

Delivering the President’s speech titled, “Courage Under Fire: A Bouquet for Our Police Force,” Shettima noted that at a time in Nigeria’s history when the nation’s security architecture is being stretched beyond elastic limits, the citizens have been able to endure in the face of security threats as well as attacks on their lives and livelihoods due to the commitment of the police.

He said his administration had been unequivocal about its resolve to transform the Nigeria Police Force into “a modern, professional, and accountable institution that mirrors the aspirations and values” of the nation

This is as he listed part of the comprehensive reforms by his administration to rejuvenate the police force to include investment in training and capacity-building.

According to him, this will ensure that police officers are equipped with the knowledge, skills, values, and expertise required to tackle the complex challenges of modern policing, assuring that the government will upgrade equipment and technology to enhance the operational effectiveness and efficiency of the force
