Nigeria: ACN, CNPP Urge Turn-Around of Police Force

The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) have asked President Goodluck Jonathan to do something urgently to revamp the fortunes of the Nigerian Police Force rather than looking for scapegoats.

ACN said the President could use his surprise visit to the Police College in Ikeja last week, as an opportunity to address the decrepit state of the police training institution.

In a statement issued on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said instead of using the occasion to tell Nigerians what his administration will do to uplift the training institution and many of its likes across the country, the President chose to berate imaginary enemies who are bent on embarrassing his administration, and also questioned how Channels managed to film the rot in the college.
