Chinese Consulate donates motorcycles, other equipment to Nigerian Police
By Providence Emmanuel
In a bid to improve the efficiency of the Nigeria Police Force, the Consulate General of the Peoples Republic of China in Lagos has donated some equipment to the Zone 2 Command of the force.
The equipment comprised nine motorcycles, which are meant to aid the command in community surveillance, and nine split floor type room air conditioners to enhance the comfort of the police officers in their offices.
The Consul General, His Excellency, Mr. Chao Xiaoliang, who made the donation, yesterday, said the Consulate was appreciative of the efforts of the command in enforcing law and order with its area of jurisdiction.
He said: “This event has three objectives. First it is to show our appreciation for the efforts made by Nigeria Police Force, Zone 2 Command, in enforcing rule of law, particularly in protecting Chinese nationals and companies.
“Second, we would like to donate some equipment, three motorcycles and three air conditioners respectively to Area E and Area F commands in Lagos State and Sagamu Area Command in Ogun State. In our work contact with police officers, we found that some police commands suffered from lack of patrol motorcycles and their offices had no air conditioners. We do hope these gifts can enhance the ability of the police to enforce laws and improve officers’ working environment.
“The third objective is to establish a platform to improve the friendship between Chinese community and the Nigeria Police Force in our consular district. In recent years, more and more Chinese people come to Nigeria to do business and make investment, contributing actively to local economic and social development. However, they also face serious safety challenges.”
Xiaoliang noted that both Nigeria and China are still faced with the arduous task of development, stressing that the two countries should maintain the sound momentum of high-level exchanges, strengthen friendly exchanges in all fields and render mutual understanding and support.
The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 2 Command, AIG Adamu Ibrahim, who received the equipment, noted that it would help the police in crime fighting.
