The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma, has advised officers and men of the command not to abandon the use of face masks, hand sanitisers and other COVID-19 protocols.
He said it was necessary for the personnel to take preventive measures against contracting the virus due to the nature of their responsibilities.
“We appreciate the donation of the face masks and sanitisers by the AA Zaura Foundation; it will go a long way in protecting our personnel from being infected.
“So if we have some preventive measures like the face masks and sanitisers; they will assist in protecting our personnel,” he said.
Mr Abdulsalam Abdulkarim, Founder of the Foundation, said the gesture was part of the organisation’s corporate social responsibility geared toward securing the police personnel from the scourge of coronavirus.
“So, the foundation felt the police should be the first to be protected because they face and receive a lot of people all the time,” Abdulkarim said.
He added that the foundation would continue to support the Nigerian Police Force and other paramilitary organisations in the country. (NAN)
