Nigeria Police inaugurate committee on communal crisis management

Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba

The Nigeria Police on Monday inaugurated a police committee on the Prevention and Management of Communal Crisis.

In a statement, the police spokesperson, Emmanuel Ojukwu, said the committee, inaugurated by the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, is expected to bring an end to “the pervasive communal clashes that have plagued different parts of the nation”.

Mr. Ojukwu said the committee which was set up on October, 27 is saddled with the responsibility to encourage and facilitate dialogue among warring parties, conduct mediation meetings with aggrieved parties with a bid to peaceably resolving declared differences and conduct investigation into incidents where necessary.

The committee will develop and maintain frameworks and processes for the prevention and effective management of communal clashes, mediate and apply Alternative Dispute Resolution, ADR, services to avert clashes and or resolve observed/reported communal disputes before they escalate.

It will also conduct assessment of the extent of communal clashes within Nigeria and make recommendation to the police chief on the role of the Nigeria Police in providing security and public safety in trouble areas.

The committee, Mr. Ojukwu said, will be co-chaired by six Assistant Inspector Generals of Police, AIGs: Christopher Dega, Mohamed Jinjiri, Adeola Adeniyi, Felix Uyanna, Yahaya Ardo, Joseph Mbu and Rasheed Akintunde – the committee secretary.

Mr. Abba urged the committee members through their experience, ensure a non-pathological level of communal crisis across Nigeria.

    Why are you so fixated on the issue of “gender equality”?Could it be because you are funded by Oxfam and the other alphabet soup organizations? The bottomline demains that men and women are different whether we admit it or not.I am claiming tbat men are superior to women,I am just stating it as it is.
    Why are all you “gender mainstreaming” activists selective about what you want to be equal about? I have never seen a female vulcaniser, female carpenter,female bulldozer or grader operator,female butcher, female iron bender, female molue driver, female loader at rice or cement plants, female heavy duty equipment operators, e.g cranes, dredgers,etc, female trailer drivers (even the female Europeans who drive trucks in Europe, cannot drive a a Nigerian trailer from Lagos to Maiduguri), etc.Similarly,I have never seen any female police officer or military officer at any checkpoint,in the night, in the middle of nowhere (or infact at any other time)
    Yet I have not heard a single complaint from women saying they are marginalised in these fields.They only scream “marginalization when it comes to “easy” jobs like directorships of banks and blue chip companies or other white collar jobs.Marginalization should have no distinction.You cannot pick and choose the areas of marginalization to be upset about.
    Please can you explain to me why we have female football teams,female basketball teams,female volleyball teams,female handball teams etc.If you say that it is because these are contact sports,why cant a female like Serena Williams play lawn tennis against,say Roger Federer?Or a female like Oshonaike play table tennis againt Toriola?
    Have you ever thought of that?If not,why not?
    I am sure that you must have heard about the following people,if you have not,please look them up;Christopher Columbus,Hernando Cortez,Ferdinand Magellan,Vasco da Gama,Francisco Pizzarro,Leonardo da Vinci,Thomas Edison,Nicolas Tesla,Michael Faraday,James Watt,Marconi,Mozart,Chopin,Isambard Brunel,Christopher Wren,Wlibur and Orville Wright,Isaac Newton,Albert Einstein, etc,etc.
    You may well mention Marie Curie,but please investigate and find out how she got her Nobel Prize.It was in collaboration with her husband,and later, her boyfriend.It might also interest you to know how she died.It was because she kept a radioactive substance(radium,if my memory serves me) in her pocket.
    Please dont preach to me about the “patriarchy” keeping women down.As far back as 1492,Queen Isabella of Aragon (Spain) was one of the preeminent rulers in the world.Dont forget Queen Elizabeth who was at the helm of affairs in England at the time of the “Spanish Armada”,in 1588 (if my memory serves me).Please note that she never married,and is referred to as the “Virgin Queen”.
    Dont also forget Queen Mary ,”Queen of the Scots”,Boudicca,Queen Victoria,etc.Why didnt the “patriarchy” hold them down?
    Speaking of gender stereotypes,if you had twin children,a male and a female,say 18 years old,and you wanted to leave your car at the mechanic’s workshop .Which one of your children would you leave at the workshop to keep an eye on thing?Something tells me it would be the male child.
    If on the other hand,in addition to the aforesaid twins,you also had a one year old baby.Which of your older children would you be more comfortable leaving at home to look after the one-year old?Something tells me it would be the female.
    My point is that we should not expend energy on all these funny western western concepts of feminism,gender equality etc.We should just try and build a better society for everyone.
