Nigeria Police Force to Partner Premier Agribusiness Academy on Officer Retirement
The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) are set to collaborate with Premier Agribusiness Academy (PAA) on training of officers as part of preparation towards retirement.
The Director General of PAA, Toromade Francis made this known shortly after a collaboration meeting with AIG Aishatu Abubakar who also doubles as President Veterinary Council of Nigeria (VCN) and CSP Taariminge Zirrah Faive, Head of Administration, Force Animal Branch, Department of Operations at the Force Headquarters in Abuja recently.
According to him, the training is necessary to adequately prepare and equip police officers who are willing to engage in farming activities after their retirement. He added that, without proper training, officers may struggle to succeed in the trade or could be swindled as they do not have prior knowledge or understanding of agribusiness.
Toromade intimated that once all modalities for the partnership has been concluded, PAA will train officers on all aspects of agribusiness including poultry, agronomy (maize, soybean, cassava etc.) and aquaculture.
