In furtherance of the ongoing reforms in the Nigerian Police Force, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has met with Police Public Relations Officers (PPRO) from across the country on how to evolve a more people-friendly, professional and human rights compliant Police Force.
Adamu, met with PPRO, Tuesday in Enugu to mark the commencement of a 4-day Intensive Capacity Building Workshop for Police Spokespersons.
Frank Mba DCP, the Force Public Relations Officer, in a press release, said the workshop tagged “Crisis Management and Law Enforcement; the role of Police Spokespersons”, was declared open by the Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
According to the IGP, the Workshop will, amongst other things, avail the Police Public Relations Managers the opportunity to review the two major unfortunate events in the year, 2020 – the outbreak of the COVID-19 National Health Emergency, and the END SARS protests and the violence that ensued therefrom, in some parts of the country – and come up with best practices and improved strategic communication tools to manage similar crises in future.
Adamu, while thanking the Governor and people of Enugu State for hosting the program, notes that the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) and other carefully selected Public Relations/Communications Experts will function as the Faculty Directors for the Workshop.
He notes further that the NIPR will also organize an accelerated Master Class/Induction Course for the PPROs who are not yet registered members of the Institute, to ensure full compliance with the NIPR Act, CAP N114, LFN 2004 which criminalizes engaging in Public Relations activities without licensing by the NIPR.
In his keynote address, Governor Ugwuanyi commended the IGP for his initiative on the Workshop and the ongoing reforms directed at addressing the agitations of the Nigerian people for a Police Force that is responsive and respects the rights of the citizenry.
The Governor, enjoined the course participants to maximize the opportunity the Workshop provides to network, peer review, and cross-fertilize ideas with the experts to sharpen and broaden their PR skills and knowledge for better service delivery to the Police Force and the nation at large.
Also in attendance at the Opening Ceremony are; DIG Celestine Okoye, coordinating Deputy Inspector General of Police, South-East, Assistant Inspector General of Police Dan-Mallam Mohammed, AIG Zone-13 Headquarters, AIG FCID Annex Enugu, amongst Commissioner of Police.
