The Directorate of Police Education on Monday said that non availability of plots was hindering establishment of a police secondary school in Lagos State.
The Director, DCP Ibrahim Kabiru, disclosed this in Lagos that the absence of the school was a major constraint to continuity.
“There exist police secondary schools in other zones of the Nigerian Police Force apart from zone 2, which comprises Lagos and Ogun states.
“The large number of pupils from the police primary schools in Lagos needs a police secondary school to continue to receive qualitative education.
“It is not proper for us to graduate children from our primary schools only to take them to other schools,” the director said,’’ he told NAN.
The director appealed to the Lagos State Government and corporate bodies to donate plots or buildings for the school.
According to him, the directorate will need an expanse of land or huge structures for the school which operates a boarding system to ensure discipline.
“The Directorate of Police Education only operates a boarding system in its secondary schools to maintain discipline,’’ Kabiru said.
“We have more mixed schools to give the children opportunities to compete, irrespective of their sexes,” the DCP said.
Kabiru said that the directorate had 72 police children schools (primary) and nine secondary schools.
He noted that two of the secondary and 17 of the primary schools were established this year. (NAN)
