I-G inaugurates new police command headquarters in Lafia


Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris


The Inspector-General. of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has inaugurated the new state Police Command headquarters, Lafia, donated by the Nasarawa State Government.
Idris, while inaugurating the edifice on Thursday in Lafia, lauded Gov. Umaru Al-Makura for identifying with the Nigerian Police Force by providing the facility at a critical period of challenges to the security system.

He said the intervention by the state government would go a long way in enhancing the operational capacity of the police in the state.

“We assure the State Governor of maximum use of the edifice to ensure that our citizens are adequately protected at all times,” he said.

He called on individuals and corporate bodies to emulate the state government’s gesture as “the duty of guaranteeing security networking is a duty of all Nigerians.”

“There is no doubt that we have challenges, but pockets of interventions like this, will go a long way in ameliorating the plight of the police, especially the logistic requirements,’’ he said.

Idris thanked Nigerians for their support, and assured that the Police Force would not relent in securing the lives and property of all citizens.

Gov. Al-Makura said the donation of the edifice was borne out of the determination of his administration to provide the necessary support to security agencies to protect lives and property of the citizens.

He said the state government would not have been able to stem the numerous security challenges in the state over the years without the collaboration of the Police and other sister agencies.

“This administration being encouraged by the gallantry and resilience of the Nigeria Police Force, finds it expedient to construct a befitting edifice and donate same to the force as its state headquarters.

“It is heart-warming to acknowledge that the complex being inaugurated today is one of the biggest police command headquarters in the country,” Al-Makura said.

He expressed hope that the gesture would serve as a morale booster to the police command to be more proactive in the protection of lives and property.

Al-Makura said the state government would continue to partner with the police and other security outfits toward controlling crime and other social misdemeanor in the state.

Before the inauguration, the command was operating from the building of the defunct Social Democratic Party (SDP) office along Makurdi road in Lafia.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
