Police Trust Fund partners NPA for better personnel welfare
In a quest to garner support for the funding of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund (NPTF), the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund (NPTF), Aliyu Ahmed Sokoto, has sought the support from the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).
The executive secretary, who was received by the Managing Director of NPA, Hajia Hadiza Bala-Usman, gave the assurance to support the NPTF.
“The NPA will support you in every way it can, even beyond our mandate, but also as individuals to build a police force that will provide the attendant security needed,” she said.
She also charged the executive secretary on the need to expedite action on executing the mandate of NPTF.
She said: “I would want you to do what you can within the shortest period to show relevance within the sector, within the shortest possible time. Being the pioneer executive secretary, a lot falls on your shoulder and it is an opportunity for you to show your capacity within the huge responsibility you are faced with.”
Executive Secretary of NPTF, Aliyu Ahmed Sokoto, stated that the purpose of his visit to NPA was to intimate the organisation about the mandate of the body and solicit for collaboration that will enhance the fulfillment of its mandate as stipulated in the NPTF’s Act 2020.
“The purpose of my visit is to keep you abreast of the mandate and the activities of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund, as well as to seek close working relationship between our organisation and the Nigeria Ports Authority.
“The Trust Fund is envisioned to build a well-trained, well-equipped and well-motivated police force that will be prompt and responsive to security challenges in line with best global practices.
“Our mission is to provide critical needs that will ensure overall improvement and efficiency as they discharge their duties and responsibilities of the Nigeria Police Force and its auxiliary colleges and institutions.”
