Every 7th Of April Now National Police Day- Tinubu Declares 

President Bola Tinubu has declared April 7 as National Police Day. 

The President made the declaration through Vice President Kashim Shettima at the maiden award and commendations event organised by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in Abuja on Monday night.

Delivering the President’s speech titled, “Courage Under Fire: A Bouquet for Our Police Force,” VP Shettima said at a time in Nigeria’s history when the nation’s security architecture is being stretched beyond elastic limits, the citizens have been able to endure in the face of security threats as well as attacks on their lives and livelihoods due to the commitment of the police.

He noted that his administration had been unequivocal about its resolve to transform the Nigeria Police Force into “a modern, professional, and accountable institution that mirrors the aspirations and values” of the nation.

This is as he listed part of the comprehensive reforms by his administration to rejuvenate the police force to include investment in training and capacity-building.

According to him, this will ensure that police officers are equipped with the knowledge, skills, values, and expertise required to tackle the complex challenges of modern policing, assuring that the government will upgrade equipment and technology to enhance the operational effectiveness and efficiency of the force.
