Buhari made the assertion on Thursday on the occasion of the Passing Out Parade (POP) of the fourth (4th) regular course cadets of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano.

The Boko Haram, IPOB, ESN and banditry, that had been shown threat in some part of the country have been degraded ‘ Buhari said

He added that “As you are all aware, this administration came into office with a determination to tackle three areas, the security, building and sustainable economy and fighting corruption.”

He however noted that “We can say that despite all these challenges, we can say that recent positive development has shown that there is general improvement in all these three areas.”

Meanwhile, the Commandant Nigeria Police Academy Wudil, AIG Abdurrahman Ahmad, has told President Muhammad Buhari, that the Academy, is confronted with a myriad of problems which include been” Porous and lacks perimeter fence and, poor toad network.’

He also stated that “the academy is facing acute shortage of manpower to handle academic and administrative needs of the academy.”

The Commandant made the assertion on Thursday on the occasion of the Passing Out Parade(POP) parade of the fourth (4th) regular course cadets of the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano.

Continuing his lamentations, he said, “there are lack of central sewage system to take care of Cadets hostel and staff quarters.”

According to him “there is lack of accommodation, inadequate power supply, while desertification leading to the destruction of roofs.’

Aside from the above challenges, “there is delay in timely payment of Cadets stipends/allowances as well as lack of obstacles/training facilities in the academy

He, therefore, informed that “there is need to have a dedicated power line from Wudil power plant and upgrading the 2.5 MV to boost the power needs of the academy

He said “it is not hyperbole to state here that the annual budgetary allocation of the academy is grossly inadequate to finance development projects that will facilitate peaceful learning and working environment.
