Minister of Police Affairs, Senator Ibrahim Gaidam, says some strategies must be adopted to enhance the performance of Cadet Students of the Nigeria Police Academy,Wudil,Kano State.

Such strategies,Gaidam said include: enhanced training and education, mentorship and guidance, emphasis on ethics professionalism, physical and wellness programmes, community engagement and practical experience.

The Minister outlined the strategies during a meeting with management and staff of the Academy at the institution’s premises on Monday.

“I come to you today with a sense of purpose and determination to address a crucial matter that lies at the heart of our institution’s mission – the improvement of the Cadet Students performance to shape the future leaders of law enforcement in Nigeria.

“As we thrive to produce well-disciplined and professionally sound police cadets,it is imperative that we collectively embark on a journey of transformation and innovation in our approach,” he said.

The Minister said the task is not easy but that it is a noble one, adding that,” by implementing these strategies and working together as a cohesive team,we can shape the future leaders of law enforcement in Nigeria and ensure that our police cadets are well prepared to uphold the values of justice, integrity and service to humanity.

“As members of the Nigeria Police Academy,you are not only educators but also mentors to the future leaders of our police force.Your guidance, wisdom and experience will have a lasting impact on the cadets under your care,” he said.

Gaidam therefore urged them to embrace this role with a sense of responsibility and dedication, pointing out that the future of our police force depends on the values and skills they impart to the next generation.

In a welcome address,the Commandant of the Academy,AIG Sadiq Abubakar,said the institution is doing very well in realising its objectives.

AIG Abubakar said with the commitment and continued support of the Federal Government through the Ministry of Police Affairs,the Academy had been able to “vigorously pursue policies that are purposely focused on making it one of the best Police Training Institutions in Africa.

“And repositioning it to take the lead in innovative practices, research, training, modern policing and quality education,” he said.

The Commandant, however, listed the challenges being faced by the institution to include shortage of academic and directing staff,acute shortage of staff quarters for both directing and academic staff, inadequate science and language laboratories to cater for the growing population of cadets, and non completion of major projects.
