IGP Performs Ground-breaking For Redevelopment of DIG Quarters
The Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, on Thursday, conducted the ground-breaking of the redevelopment of the official quarters for Deputy Inspectors General of Police (DIGs).
The ground-breaking ceremony kicks off the construction of a minimum of 39 units of six-bedroom gated villas with state-of-the-art facilities and amenities under Public Private partnership (PPP) between the Force and a construction company, Cosgrove Investment Limited.
Speaking at the ceremony, IGP Baba stated that the project is part of the ongoing renovation of Police buildings and facilities as Officers and men of the Force deserve more suitable accommodations.
“It is the oldest building that the Police have constructed in Abuja. The building has become archaic and not functional. Do we deserve to live in that kind of place as members of the Force Management Team and most Senior Police Officers? We are also trying to remodel our Police Stations, Divisions, Headquarters, and our places of abode,” he said.
Cosgrove CEO, Umar Abdullahi, who joined the IGP for the ceremony, assured that the project will be delivered using the best cutting-edge solutions.
“We understand the important role that our Officers play, the respect they command, and the importance of the Police institution; this project will be delivered using the best cutting-edge solutions. The chosen PPP arrangement is a design, finance, build, lease, and transfer. On completion, it will serve the Nigeria Police and the Federal Government would have fulfilled another obligation to provide befitting units to the DIGs,” he said.
