Nigerian Police Divisional Command Seeks to Strengthen Ties with Covenant University

In the quest to ensure a more security-friendly disposition between the Police and members of the community, the leadership of the Divisional Command of the Nigerian Police Force has paid a courtesy visit to the Management of Covenant University. 

The Divisional Police Officer of the Nigerian Police Force, Onipanu Division, Ota, Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Ayodele Sulaiman, said he was on a familiarization tour of his area of command with the hope of deepening the existing relationship between the police and major stakeholders, like Covenant University.

The CSP, Sulaiman, said he started his familiarization tour of the community at Covenant because of the important role the institution plays in the growth of the civic space of Ota as a whole. He was joined on the visit by ACP Liasu Idegbesor and ACP Olagbade Sulaiman.

"Covenant University has made the Ota community a student community, and I understand the need to make this community safe and peaceful for all scholars and visitors to the University," he posited.

CSP Sulaiman appealed to the management of Covenant University to remain steadfast in supporting the police command, aiming to entrench safety and communal cohesion in the milieu.

"I crave the same level of support and cooperation that you gave my predecessor during his time in Ota, and I look forward to a fruitful, peaceful, and prosperous working relationship between this university and the police," he enthused.

Responding, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abiodun H. Adebayo, congratulated CSP Ayodele Sulaimon for assuming command of the division and assured him of the university's management’s readiness to continually work with law enforcement agencies to ensure a peaceful and prosperous society for all.

Professor Adebayo said Covenant University was ready to work with the police in projecting the good work that officers and men of the force were putting in towards keeping the nation and community safe, while at the same time dealing with the bad eggs tarnishing the image of the force.

"We hold it as a duty to carry out our corporate social responsibility to the police command through our Community Development Impact Initiative Committee (CDIIC) in partnership with the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC) through the division," he posited.

Present at the courtesy visit were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olujide Adekeye; Acting Registrar, Mrs. Regina Tobi-David; Director, Financial Services, Pastor Oluwole Bolujoko; and members of the Security Committee of the University.
