The Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba has charged the management of the Police Academy, Wudil, Kano State to strictly adhere by rules and regulations guiding admissions.
The IGP, who made the call in Kano while commissioning projects in the school, stressed the need to maintain the academic standard.
“We should be thinking of engineering, medicine, science-based studies, and technology-based studies. And in that way, we will be well diversified and be self-sustaining and also produce the workforce needed.
“You also need to look at self-sustainability. You cannot always expect everything from the government. You have all it takes to generate revenue. The land here can give you animal husbandry, farming, etc to achieve self-sustainability,” he said, while lauding the achievements recorded within a short period of the posting of the new commandant to the academy.
