|Open Letter To President Goodluck Jonathan And IGP Abubakar by stineb1: 12:22pm On May 24, 2013|
We the Police Ambassadors; an alumni association of ex students of Police Secondary School Calabar, Lagos chapter commiserate with Mr. President, Inspector General of Police, the Police Force, State Security Service SSS, the slain officers’ families, the Nasarawa government and the entire Nation on the horrific death of Police officers on May 7, 2013 in Alakyo community of Nasarawa State.
We dare not pontificate about the nobility of the 46 policemen and 10 SSS operatives demise when their families nurse the excruciating pain of lost love ones and bread winners. Our prayers go to them. The outcome of their lives these past days is worst imagined than experienced. It is on this note that we thank the Minister of Police Affairs, the Police Service Commission and the IGP for the speedy disbursement of One million Naira for each murdered officer’s family; bearing in mind that more entitlements are on the way. Hopefully the Police sister body SSS have follow suit for their own; albeit in a discreet manner that typifies their operation.
We identify with the Police Force in this dark episode. We declare that such brazen attack on the Police, which is the constitutional security apparatus of Nigeria’s democratic existence, is an attack on the Nation. The offenders and murderers have committed treason. We condemn this act and desire the criminals be brought to justice. We extol the Police Force for their professionalism and restrain in spite of the instinctive lure to revenge the massacre by the Ombatse faithful. We applaud but yet are somber as you stay dutiful to God and Country. Thank you for being so exemplary; especially to the youths of this Nation.
Mr. President the saying uneasy lies the head that wears the crown has never been so lucid than in your administration. We admonish your love for this country- when you urgently responded to the purge of human lives in troubled areas by boycotting your State visit to Namibia and returning back home. More so your temperance in addressing the current State of Emergency in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states whilst Nasarawa was an obvious omission pays credence to your objectivity even when sporadic security breach would have caused your government to be reactionary. Thank you for exhibiting a thorough composure that is presidential. In this juncture we appreciate the support that your decision has garnered from the political class. It is noteworthy that the Executive powers of Nasarawa state rest on a political party different from the federal government hence their seamless partnership over this period is most commendable.
However it peeves us that certain element in the society has used this unfortunate incident to spread mockery of the Police Force. This people who are not worth naming have continued empty-gong noise in our civil state that is anti police and anti progress. Their lazy talk sadly causes distrust in government and its security.
Please permit my ensuing diversion; we the Police Ambassadors are former students of Police Secondary School Calabar. Actually our Alma mata is situated in Akpabuyo local government area in Cross River State. It is an area sandwiched between Calabar metropolis and then military occupied hotbed of Bakassi peninsula in the Nineties. We had to pass sandbagged Army checkpoints before crossing the Akpabuyo Bridge heading for our School. The crux of this story is that our caring Parents and Guardians found no better place to entrust our safety and education than in the Police School; it’s like we found peace in the middle of the storm. We are living testimonies of the benefit of trusting the Police Force in the face of bad occurrences. This is the herald of our ambassadorship to the general society. ‘We are happy to make IG proud’.
Once again accept our condolence. God bless us all.
