Kaduna (Nigeria) – Nigeria’s Inspector – General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has asked Nigerian youth to embrace dialogue as an important tool for communication and conflict resolution.
The IGP was speaking when he received in audience the new leadership of National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), who paid him a visit in his office in Abuja.
Idris praised the student body for the good conduct and democratic value displayed during their last national convention.
He tasked the students to shun crime within and outside the student communities, adding that they should ”maintain a good communication link with commissioners of police of various commands across the country.”
Speaking earlier, NANS President Haruna Kadir commended the efforts of Nigerian police in prevention and reduction of violent crime and other vices within the student community, as well as the security coverage provided the student body during its recent national convention in Abuja.
He expressed delight over the position of the IGP on zero tolerance to corruption, as well as commitment at ensuring asset declaration by officers of the force since his assumption as Inspector General of Police.
Haruna also pledged their support and partnership with Nigerian police.
