FG sites Police Academy in Anambra


The Federal Government has sited Police Academy in Anambra State to fight insecurity and unemployment in the Southeast
Its delegation led by Okey Imoatu visited the site at Umuchukwu, in Orumba south local government area of the state at the weekend.
The donor of the recently approved Police College and Academy in Anambra State, Dr Godwin Maduka, said it was a good development for Southeast.
He said the Federal Government would use institutions to create employment for young people in the south east region.
Maduka, a United States Medical Doctor and pain manager, said it would help youths and other school leavers with no meaningful employment to enroll and sharpen their skills that would help them to be absorbed in the police force.
Maduka said the academy would also help to phase out crime through the use of modern crime fighting techniques.
According to him: “I decided to attract this project to Umuchukwu as a way of helping youths gain employment and also fight corruption in our society.
“The project would be sitting on 50 hectares of land, which I have already procured as you see and from the inspection which we have undertaken today with members of the Police Service Commission, you can see that they are pleased with the arrangement so far.”
Imoatu, who is the chief consultant of the commission, said the project would help in intelligence gathering and enhance the police force in carrying out its jobs efficiently.
