CP Gumel maintained that as a security agency, the Police would do all what it takes  to support government to implement its  policies 100 per cent.
“Let me assure you that whenever you need our services, we will not hesitate to come  and render helping hands without delay and in accordance with the law, to  fulfil the constitutional provision which established your work and mandate,” CP Gumel added.
The Kano Chief Sheriff, however, advised  Commissioner Aliyu Kibiya  to organize a retreat or workshop for the staff of the Ministry in order to sensitize them, pointing out that, “this will reduce the illicit behavior among the staff and also will serve as an avenue of interaction between you and your staff.”
