CP Abiodun remarked, “I am excited about this meeting today and also here to thank you for your continued support since I was posted here as CP. It has been a very good experience with the Ogun PCRC and the South West PCRC chapter, which made work easier for me. I am here with this goodwill message and to help me tell them that I will never take their support for granted. I run an open-door policy. Without their support, we would not have succeeded in our fight against crime, making the state safe. I thank you especially and appreciate you also.”

“I appreciate the great work you are doing and how you are changing the perspective of Police service among the people. I want you to intensify your effort and also ensure your men are more friendly and convivial while discharging their duties. This will further create a positive perception about the police and boost the confidence people have in them. With you here, I am sure the fight against crime will be won convincingly. I appreciate you once again. Keep up the good work,” Aare Adetola affirmed.
Aare Adetola EmmanuelKing also took the opportunity to commend the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun Psc, for his recent initiative to recruit 20 young Nigerians in each local government across the nation, a move aimed at bolstering the number of the Nigeria Police Force for enhanced community policing nationwide.
