2023: Police, Solar Security organise workshop for officers on security

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in collaboration with Solar Security and Consult Company Limited Monday  organised a one- day sensitisation workshop for police officers in the North-east of Nigeria on election security matters.

The workshop  which was organised with  the theme: ” 2023  General Elections – Enhancing National Security Capacity for a Secured and Credible Electoral Process in Nigeria for Law Enforcement Agencies in 6 geo-political zones  of the country,” was meant to acquaint  the police officers with  the appropriate and adequate  knowledge  on election security management.

Speaking at the workshop, which was held at the  Grand Pinnacle Luxury Hotels, Maiduguri, Monday, the former IGP, Solomon Arase, said,  “this workshop is an initiative of the IGP, Usmsn Alkali. He felt that his officers and men are doing well in election security management, but the 2023 general elections will be more challenging.

“The workshop is apt and timely as it will acquaint officers and men with new electoral law and how they relate with other security agencies and other stakeholders as well as mental and physical well being of officers and men deployed for election security management,” Arase said.

The former IGP also said   the workshop was further aimed  at identifying security threats, what are the gaps and how can these gaps be bridged in the build- up process for the  2023 general elections.

He also stated  that  during the  opening ceremony of the workshop  in Abuja, all the security  stakeholders, which includes military,  DSS  and NSCDC were in attendance.
