‘I Feel Honoured’, SP Ologunro Bags Best Graduating Officer in Human Right Course

In a bid to ensure that the rights of Nigerians are not deprived but well protected, the Lagos Police Command in collaboration with Crime Victims Foundation (CRIVIFON) held its  41st Graduation Ceremony of the Police Human Rights Officers.

 

One of the recipients of the award, SP Ologunro Lateef expressed delight after bagging an award as the best graduating officer of the Human Rights Course 41 in Lagos Command.

 

Ologunro, an active and intelligent officer, said at the graduating ceremony that the award will motivate him to further give his best to the progress of the Nigerian police force whose goal is to secure lives and properties even as the 2023 elections draw near.

 

 

“Well, I thank Almighty Allah for making it possible for me to be recognised and presented with an award. Yes, I was very delighted because it shows my effort was well appreciated. The award means a lot to me and I know it will further motivate me to do more better in my field.

 

“The truth is I never saw this coming considering the fact that the course was attended by several other intelligent officers. So, for me to have been recognised amongst other personnel, I feel excited, as this will enhance my commitment to the ideals of the Nigerian Police Force.

 

“Besides, this is why I joined the Nigeria Police Force. To ensure that the lives of every Nigerian are well protected regardless of anything. I appreciate the amiable commissioner of police, Abiodun Alabi for making this happen. 

 

“Apart from the award, we have been impacted with relevant knowledge on the need to discharge our duties diligently, even as we uphold and protect the rights of all Nigerians.”

The executive director of CRIVIFON, Mrs Gloria Egbuji, highlighted the need for members of the police to change the narrative by improving the image of the police in order to gain the trust of the populace. Adding that with trust and collaboration with the people, intelligence gathering and information sharing, which are pivotal to security will become easier.

 

She noted that it has become very important to have friendly police officers who respect the human rights of all citizens.  

 

The event had notable guests and security experts such as the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Abiodun Alabi, and the chairman, of the House Committee on Police Reform and Accountability in the Federal House of Representatives, Prince Bayo Balogun.
