The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr George Akume, has inaugurated a remodelled Mobile Police Base at Kakuruk in Gashish District, Barkin-Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau. This base was established following a 2021 attack by gunmen that resulted in numerous fatalities and the destruction of property worth millions of naira.

The SGF, represented by his Chief of Staff, Mr. Simeon Tyongu, inaugurated the project on Thursday. The initiative was undertaken by the National Hydroelectric Power Producing Areas Development Commission (N-HYPPADEC).

In his speech, Akume emphasized that the project would enhance security in the area and reassured Nigerians that President Bola Tinubu’s administration would continue implementing programs and policies to improve their lives.

I am immensely delighted to acknowledge and commend N-HYPPADEC for initiating and successfully executing this important project. This government will continue to initiate impactful projects and programs that will serve the betterment of our power-producing communities and Nigerians in general,” Akume stated.

Governor Caleb Mutfwang, represented by Mr. Samuel Jatau, the Secretary to the Government of the State, expressed gratitude to N-HYPPADEC for their efforts. He mentioned that the state government had taken various steps to ensure the safety of lives and property of all citizens.

In his welcome remarks, Alh. Abubakar Yelwa, the Managing Director of N-HYPPADEC, highlighted that the project was part of its Corporate Social Responsibility to power-producing communities nationwide.

“Barikin Ladi has faced numerous inter and intra-communal conflicts, underscoring the need for enhanced police presence and infrastructure to address security challenges effectively. Our mission to remodel and reconstruct the police barracks in Kakuruk was born out of a genuine concern for the well-being and operational efficiency of our dedicated police officers serving in this region.

Following a comprehensive needs assessment exercise conducted by the Federal Government through N-HYPPADEC, the deplorable condition of the police barracks in Barikin Ladi was distressingly evident. It became imperative to renovate and upgrade the base to provide a conducive living and working environment for our law enforcement officers to enable them to carry out their duties effectively and ensure the community’s safety,” Yelwa explained.

This project is expected to significantly bolster the security framework within the region, providing a safer environment for residents and law enforcement personnel.
