The Cross River State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kola Shodipo has told the national executive committee of the National Association of Cross River State Students World Wide (NACRISS WW) that he is fully abreast of what happened in their last election.
The Commissioner said this when the executive members paid him a courtesy call to honor him with a mentorship award and seek for cooperation with the police in sustaining the peace in the State.
The President, Comrade Agweye Philomina Odah in her address said, “We lack the qualified adjective to express our gratitude because this gesture will hardly fade from our memory.”
She commended the efforts of the police in ensuring peace and security in the state, adding that “it is as a result of this giant stride that we have deemed it fit to honor you with certificate of Mentorship as a way of showing the appreciation of Nacrites”.
The new exco appealed to the Police chief to “absorb us into the billings of your administration, come to our aid whenever we have security challenges and partner with us in any capacity be it finance and otherwise.”
On his part, the 37th Commissioner of Police in Cross River, CP Kola Sodipo told his guests that, “I am fully abreast with all that took place during your election.”
He admonished them to be of good conduct and that they should not allow themselves to be used politically “because circular politics is far different from student unionism” noting that till date he still has some unattended petitions on his desk pertaining to the conduct of the just concluded election that saw them into office.
He revealed that “One of my greatest challenge is that of cultism” and enjoined the union leaders to support the police in their own little way to curb the menace.
The Police boss promised to support the Union on condition that “You will be morally upright” adding that “I am watching you; any misdemeanor will attract punishment and good conduct reward.”
On request, the CP released his contact and that of the Divisional Police Officers (DPO) in the state to the students.
He warned that, “I give you these contacts not for frivolous use but for positivity.”
