The In­spec­tor-Gen­eral of Po­lice (IGP), Mo­hammed Abubakar Adamu, on Wed­nes­day, com­mis­sioned a 32-class­room po­lice chil­dren school in Daura, Katsina state.

The IGP, rep­re­sented by the DIG in charge of Fi­nance and Ad­min­is­tra­tion of the force, Ab­dul Dahiru Dan­wawu, said the school was a cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity of the force and it was not meant only for the chil­dren of the po­lice but also the pop­u­lace of the area.

He said the force has a to­tal of 103 of such pri­mary schools and 66 sec­ondary schools across the coun­try.

Ear­lier in her wel­come ad­dress, the force ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cer, DCP Rabi Umar, said the school was estab­lished in Jan­uary 2017 at a tem­po­rary site in or­der to bring af­ford­able and qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion to the chil­dren of the of­fi­cers and men of the Nige­rian po­lice in Daura and its en­vi­rons.

She said due to the grow­ing pop­u­la­tion of the pupils in the school, there was the need to build the per­ma­nent site, and as such the force ap­proached the govern­ment of Katsina state for land and the gover­nor, Aminu Bello Masari, gave them 1.008 acres of land in Daura.

In his re­marks, the Emir of Daura, Alh. Faruk Umar Faruk, thanked the IGP and the Nige­rian Po­lice Force for the ges­ture, while call­ing on other fed­eral min­istries and es­tab­lish­ments to fol­low suit.
