The Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Mohammed Danmallam, has assured police personnel who are athletes of the state Police Command’s continuous support at all times.
Danmallam gave the assurance while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after the Command’s Sports Awards Night in Enugu on Saturday evening.
He said that he looks forward to when sports officers and men under his command would be doing the country proud at international sports events.
The commissioner of police added that this would help to promote the positive image of the Nigeria Police.
“The command will continuously give its athletes all necessary support so that it will be number one in the whole country,” he said.
Danmallam noted that today’s sports goes beyond winning laurels. “It is a means to build bridge of friendship, as well as tourism for a nation or state.
“It helps one to keep fit and a strong unifying factor among people, which is highly evident in Nigeria today,” he said. More than 30 athletes of the command were given special acknowledgement at the awards ceremony.
