Public service is more of sacrifice, whatever attach to it is less concern to those with sacrificial spirit.
OLABISI new office as public Relation Officer of the Nigerian Police Trust Fund, Abuja. Could be a surprising thing to some people even herself. Because, among thousands of Chief Supritendant of Police both men and women of the nigeria Police Force. CSP OLABISI OKUWOBI was found worthy to take up information desk along former IGP SULEIMAN ABBA, Board Chairman,NPTF. it is a privilege but demand a deep breath in for many police counterparts.
Just like a star that cannot be hid: CSP OLABISI OKUWOBI proves herself like a star that can not be hiding.
Olabisi ventured into the world of security due to her deep passion and knacks for the protection of lives and properties. Although, she is a Chief Superintendent of Police, but her journey into the intelligent, trust , and investigative cadre of policing took her years of handwork ,resilience, loyalty and dedication to duties.
CSP OLABISI OKUWOBI the just out-gone DPO of Ejigbo Divisional Headquater. Her years at Ejigbo proves that, she is trust worthy and eligible to dissemination NPTF information with accuracy. Olabisi , a loyal priest holder ( Princess) but keeps her tittle attires at home and pick up her father’s land attires (police uniform) as a point of duty. The gigantic structure raise at Ejigbo Dibisional was uncommon, even the commissioner of police Lagos State command Hakeem Odin’s attest to it , singularly supervised by CSP OKUWOBI.
Let me clearly disclose to the public how OLABISI came up with the building at ejigbo division. One man call Dr. Godwin Nwabunka CEO, grooming center gave Mrs. OLABISI OKUWOBI a blank cheque, he said : CSP OLABISI ,I heard of your outstanding achievements so far at ejigbo, therefore, what do you want me to for you? The present day police couple with hardship sterling at Nigerians. One could simply demand for money. But Olabisi said, we are in need of additional building for ejigbo division , with the help of Oba of Ejigbo, and Chaiman LCDA ejigbo and others,! to God alone be praise Ejigbo Division becomes one of the best Division in Lagos State today. All credit to God and to CSP OLABISI OKUWOBI.
He who believes in other people’s welfare more than his own is a man of integrity and trust worthy. The new position of Olabisi as PRO Nigeria Police Trust Fund ( NPTF) is act of trust and believe in the change of Nigeria Police to give officers a better welfare and conducive environment.
Congratulations on your new abode.
LACK OF ADEQUATE FUNDING, TRAINING, WELFARE, EQUIPMENT BEDEVILING NPF – BOARD CHAIR POLICE TRUST FUND
The Chairman, Board if Trustees, Nigeria Police Trust Fund and former Inspector General of Police, IGP. Suleiman Abba, Psc, NPM, CFR., has listed four challenges facing the Nigeria Police Force. He listed lack of adequate funding, crime fighting equipment, training and welfare as being the limitating factors against effectiveness of the Nigeria Police Force. “Mainly, there are three or four challenges for the police”. He disclosed this while chatting with Pressmen in Abuja over the weekend. He reiterated that different Committes on Nigeria Police Reforms, too identified same challenges. “That is why even the reform committees that have looked into the problems of police and ethical conditions, summed up into four the problems of inadequate funding, the problem of inadequate manpower, the problem of lack of special care about the welfare of the police and
the quality of the recruitment and training.” He revealed that the creation of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund by President Muhammadu Buhari will soon start addressing all these challenges bedeviling the Nigeria Police Force. He revealed that the Board of the Nigeria Police Trust Fund has three mandates; which are training and retraining of Police Personnel, Procurement of state-of-the Arts equipment for fighting crimes and improvement of Police welfare which encompasses both barracks and office accomodation. He stated further that the Trust Fund is an Interventionist organisation for the Nigeria Police Force. “…the police now have another source. In summary, the objective of the Trust Fund is mainly to improve on the budgets of the Nigeria Police.”
While urging Police Officers nationwide to be service-oriented, he assured them of ensuring that the Fund on trust to the Board will be put to judicious use, solely to radically improve on the totality of the Nigeria Police Force.
