ONSA collaborates with UNDP and Germany on police reforms in Nigeria.

The Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) has collaborated on a comprehensive police reform effort in Nigeria with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the German Embassy in Abuja.

This was said by the ONSA’s Head of Strategic Communication, Mr Zakari Mijinyawa, on Saturday in Abuja.

Mijinyawa stated that the agreement was signed during a meeting between the NSA, Nuhu Ribadu, the UNDP Resident Representative, Mohamed Yahya, and the German Ambassador to Nigeria, Annett Gunther.

According to him, the agreement would probably improve the work of the Special Committee on Police Reform that President Bola Tinubu established at the most recent National Police Council meeting.

The NSA emphasised President Tinubu’s commitment to leading a thorough police reform process based on trust, human rights, the rule of law, and efficient public service in his remarks.

He appreciated UNDP’s continuous support for police training modernization and comprehensive support for police reform in Nigeria.

Ribadu also expressed Nigeria’s gratitude to the German Ambassador for the German government’s financial and technical assistance with police reform in Nigeria.

According to him, the cooperation will expand on UNDP’s assistance for the Nigeria Police Reform Initiative and Nigeria’s long-term endeavour to establish a professional police force.

Gunther, the German Ambassador, hailed Nigeria’s intention to modernise its police and assured the NSA of his country’s support for the endeavour.

In his remarks, UNDP Resident Representative Yahya reaffirmed his organization’s willingness to collaborate in carrying out the Federal Government’s police reform initiative.
