During a visit, in Abuja, to the Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, the Acting Canadian High commissioner, Nicholas Simard said his country is willing to support Nigeria with $10 million to aid its fight against insecurity.
The High Commissioner emphasized the need to build the capacity of personnel of the Police Force, among other things to diminish violence, as Nigeria is a multi-faceted developing country, with insecurity posing a great challenge to its growth.
Simard noted that insecurity has become a thing of worry that necessitated their advocacy. He went ahead to applaud the Police for the overwhelming services rendered to him since he came into the country.
The Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, disclosed that, the cordial relationship between Nigeria and Canada has grown stronger over the years. He applauded Canada’s quest and support in promoting human rights, peace and unity, not only in Nigeria but in Africa at large and went on to reveal that the Nigerian government has put every mechanism in place to make sure that no individual’s right is tampered, as well as ensuring the security of lives and properties of the citizenry.
