The Police Force of Nigeria has extended greetings to the people on the occasion of the International day of Education. The Police Force took to their social media to share a post to commemorate the event. In light of this, they accompanied the post with the following commitment: “We will continue to harness formal and informal education and local intelligence to effectively police our society.”
The greeting message by the Force Public Relations office of Nigeria is evidence of Nigeria’s commitment towards propagating quality education in the country. The world is celebrating its 5th official international day dedicated to Education. The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) adopted the resolution for this event on December 3, 2018, and The United Nations observed its first international day for Education on January 24, 2019.
Ever since this has been a yearly occurrence where the United Nations hosts various occasions aimed at the promotion of Education all over the world. Notably, the resolution for the adoption of January 24 as the International Day dedicated to Education was co-authored by Nigeria along with 58 other member countries.
Adopting the resolution for commemorating demonstrated the international community’s unwavering political resolve to support transformative actions for inclusive, equitable and quality Education for all. The Nigeria Police Force wished the people of Nigeria the international day of Education. Under the post, several social media users also express their sentiments on the importance of Education.
A social media user by the name of Bassey Maxwell wrote:
Place priority on Education. It’s the bedrock of any nation. There are so many best brains in the Force who have managed to equip themselves to Post Graduate levels and are very useful in the job, yet no encouragement or incentives for graduates in the job. Look deeply. You will agree with me on Education.
