Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has called for enhanced collaboration between communities and the police towards strengthening security in the country. “We need to initiate more avenues for further community/ police relations that would lead to crime-free society,” he stated.
The sultan stated this at the inauguration of the 100-member traffic control volunteers group in initiated by the Police Community Relation Committee (PCRC) in Sokoto.
Abubakar, who was represented by the Chiroman Sokoto, Alhaji Buhari Abubakar, expressed believe that with more partnership with the police there would be a boost in safety and security of the citizenry, adding that it would also enhance confidence of the people in the police.
He said the training of the volunteers by the police  on the rudiments of traffic control provided the much needed participation and partnership, advising the volunteers to live up to their responsibilities.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal, who inaugurated the group, promised to support any initiative aimed at curtailing road accidents in the state.
Represented by the commissioner of home affairs, Tambuwal commended the state police commissioner who promised to consider the volunteers in their forthcoming recruitment exercise.
The state PCRC chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Jibril, said the volunteers were carefully selected from the three senatorial districts and had received vigorous training on traffic control and security at the Police Training School, Sokoto.
He added that they were meant to bridge the gap created by the retired and deceased traffic wardens in the light of increasing number of road accidents in the state.
Earlier, the commissioner of police, Alhaji Salisu Fagge, warned the traffic control volunteers to be civil and restrict themselves to what they were trained to do. He also appealed to the government to assist them with allowances as that would motivate them the more.
