Story from Beatrice GONDYI, Bauchi
Bauchi State Government in collaboration with the Nigerian Police has inaugurated a 22-man Community Policing Advisory Committee.
The State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir while inaugurating the Committee at the Banquet Hall of the Government House on Tuesday, stated that the State Government will soon set up a Community Policing Trust Fund which will assist in the area of financing the activities of the Committee.
Governor Bala stressed that the inauguration of the Committee was as a result of the need to ensure that the state was able and effectively policed since according to him, Community Policing is the best in the world today.
Bala Mohammed said that Bauchi State is one of the states in the North East subregion which is battling with activities of insurgency and will not leave any stone unturned in ensuring that every community was protected by the government.
He, therefore, charged the Advisory Committee to ensure that every step required for effective Community Policing was adopted so that the aim and objectives of the Committee were achieved.
The Governor further commended President Muhammadu Buhari for what he is doing to ensure that lives and properties of Nigerians were adequately protected through the fight against insurgency and other security challenges in the country.
