NANS pledges support for police, hails efforts in securing university campuses

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has pledged to support the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, and the Nigeria Police Force in their ongoing efforts to enhance safety and security in the nation.

A statement by NANS Senate president Akinteye Babatunde Afeez, said NANS recognises the crucial role that law enforcement agencies play in maintaining public safety and security on campuses and within communities.

He hailed Egbetokun for the tireless efforts of the Nigeria Police Force to improve security.

He said the impact of the IGP’s tenure has been profoundly felt across campuses and communities, adding that enhanced safety measures have not only reassured students and their families but have also contributed to a more conducive atmosphere for academic pursuits and community development.

NANS urged President Bola Tinubu to ignore calls for the IGP’s removal, noting that his achievements within a short period are commendable, and with continued support and collaboration, he can accomplish even more in the future.

“NANS stands ready to support the IGP and the Nigeria Police Force in their ongoing efforts to safeguard our society. We believe in the IGP’s vision and capability to further enhance security and reduce crime, and we look forward to continued progress and success under his stewardship.

“Since his appointment, the IGP has demonstrated remarkable dedication to securing the lives and properties of citizens. His proactive measures and strategic initiatives have significantly reduced the crime rate, fostering a safer environment for students and the general populace.

“Moreover, there has been a noticeable improvement in overall security, and the IGP has been prompt in attending to various issues as they arise, ensuring swift and effective responses to maintain public order and safety.

“We call on President Tinubu to maintain his support for the IGP and to recognize the substantial progress made under his administration. Together, we can build a safer and more secure Nigeria for all,” it said in the statement.
