ACN tasks FG on promise to refurbish police colleges
The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has expressed the hope that the promise by Police Affairs Minister Caleb Olubolade, that the government will restructure and refurbish police training institutions across the country, is not a hoax designed only to douse the nationwide anger generated by the Channels TV expose on the rundown Police College in Ikeja.
”If this is one of those ploys to divert attention from a burning issue and then continue with business as usual, the government is in for a rude shock, because Nigerians will definitely hold the Jonathan Administration to its promise to refurbish the police training colleges,” ACN said in a statement issued in Oyo on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
”To convince Nigerians that this is not the usual government gimmick, the minister must give a time frame within which the government will redeem its pledge. This promise cannot be open-ended if it is to be credible,” it said.
