Photos: President Jonathan at Police College, Ikeja

President Jonathan yesterday afternoon made a surprise visit to the Police College, Ikeja, days after Channels TV exposed the shameful state of the college. The president was actually on his way to an ECOWAS meeting in the Ivory Coast when his plane was diverted to Ikeja.

He immediately proceeded on an inspection tour of the hostels, college kitchen, dining hall and the Officers’ Mess. Then he demanded to know how Channels TV gained access to the college to film the embarrassing condition of the college. No one had an answer for him. He promised to revamp the college after declaring that the documentary by Channels was a smear campaign.
He said:
“This is a calculated attempt to damage the image of this government. The Police College, Ikeja is not the only training institution in Nigeria"
Imagine! How is it a smear campaign? See more photos after the cut...

This comment d President made has finally sealed it for me. I can't stand this ingrate!
Rather than thank channel TV for making him aware of this mess,he is asking to know how they got into that shit hole!

He shud be wondering why dat police college have been left in that mess after so many govt came and gone. Who is in charge of maintenance for d college and why is it left in such a dilpidated shape? This is a place where u train ur first responders? The state of that institution clearly shows u d effect of corruption in most of our institutions and this is what Jonathan is trying to hide! U see what Obasanjo hoisted upon nigerians? A corrupt lazy man!

Thank heavens for the media, this is a very good gesture by GEJ, with this much attention, I know something positive will come out of this

Why must mr. President ask.how channels tv gained entrance into the police college.
I feel it is not important to know how the television crew entered the college to film the facilities. But the important stuff is to get the urgly situation arrested

Nekky said...

its not just enough to pay a surprise visit, they should spring into action pronto!!!! i'm not impressed till i see a total overhauling of the college.

What does he mean by how did Channels gain access to the college ?,where is the freedom of the press?,like renovating the police college for the country he rules is rocket science

Who are the people advising GEJ sef how can he say this is a smear campaign. Conditions there have been appalling for years did Channels do anything wrong by exposing the shame. No wonder police men in Nigeria are poorly trained, incompetent and ineffective. The training ground pretty much tells you about the end product.

An Open Letter to Mr President

Dear Sir,

You paid a surprise visit to the Lagos Police College to see for yourself, the situation documented by Channels TV; Sir, I applauded you for using your initiative. As I read through the details of your visit to the college, I heard you made this statement, “TV documentary was a calculated smear campaign against this government” and you also questioned the authorities at the college for approving the documentary.

Mr President, I am not happy with you for making an unnecessary statement and asking such irrelevant questions. In this vain, I do have five questions for you.

1. Who cares about the statement you made?
2. Who is the government really?
3. What was your true reason for visiting the college?
4. Will something be done about the situation?
5. Will someone get sacked for approving the honest documentation of the situation?

Sir, I know you may not know me in person but please know that I’m upset with you. You hurt me all the time with the things you say and I think you should please watch what you say and how you say it for the sake of our hearts; these police students are living in very terrible conditions which has ripple effects eternally, Yes, ETERNALLY!!!

Don’t hurt me again Mr President, don’t. When you are faced with a problem or complain, see it as a challenge and please solve it with good intentions like an exemplary leader would, instead of making politically stimulated statements.

Don’t hurt us Nigerians again Mr President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, it’s enough please.

Do have a fabulous day, God bless you Sir.

Abiola…

Typical! Calling it a smear overcampaign. Good Sir, what is left to smear of your government. See our issue in Naija, we do not like being held accountable. It is this attitude of "don't air dirty laundry" that has caused us to decay to this point. Sir, if you say there are other training institutions, then I am certain they are worst than this.

For once, just accept the fate of things and FIX IT. Why say anything about it being a smear campaign. KUDOS to Channels for doing responsible journalism. This is what is done in the countries where these leaders vacation. It is not a smear on your administration my dear "educated" president. It is an expose, a "Sit up and work" if you will.

Police college is not the president's responsibility. Every year the Nigeri Police force receive billions of Naira from the budget to be used to maintain these institutions, where did the money go?
GEJ is of course an idiot for calling the documentary a 'smear Campaign' but he shouldn't be promising to revamp the school, he should be summoning all past administrators of that college as well as the IGP to face the music and explain where all the allocation went.
But of course it is easier to just release small peanuts to revamp the college.

If this story was actually made-up, then he could have said it was a smear campaign. But as it is, this is factual and he wouldn't have had a clue about it if that story wasn't aired on Channels TV.

I never thought highly of him since his campaign in Ibadan, though I wish he had proved me wrong. My perception hasn't changed if indeed he did said that.

You are missing the point. What u don't get is that the police college is in a hidden location known by only a few. It is surrounded by a very high fortified wall with police snipers on strategic locations. There are 2 armoured vehicles at the main gate and you'll have to pass about 5 checkpoints to get to the police college it self. Guards patrol the compound along with police dogs and this is just on d outside. When u get to the college, you'll have to go thry body searches, infra red body scans and all that. Hence the reason he asked how Channels could get in to take thos pics. They must have done it with the CIA. So even if I were president, I'd be baffled that someone to gain access to somewhere like this. Smear campaign by the world truly. **very straight face**

I suppose the 150 Naira per head food allows xe that meant recruits were eating meagre portions out of buckets like refugees was also A CACULTED ATTEMPT TO SMEAR THE GOVT. was it?

What he should have said was:
Good people of Nigeria. Firstly may I commend Channels TV for their excellent and invaluable exposé on the conditions our Ikeja police recruits are li ing in. With this sort of journalism the hidden borrows of our country will always remain so.
Secondly, I would like to assure the good people of this country that there will be a full investigation into the circumstances that have led to the deplorable state of the facilities. The investigation will focus on
1. How many maintenance contracts have been awarded in this and previous govts
2. To whom the contracts were awarded to
3. What work was completed
4. Who signed-off on the correct execution of the contract
5. A review of the catering allowance and service provided, to ensure recruits are getting the much needed nutrients required to conduct their jobs with focus and zest

In addition, a review of all such facilities and their respective maintenance contracts will be undertaken immediately.

This is not a witch hunt, but rest assured, no stone will be left unturned In the quest for truth and justice. Accountability must be reinstated.

Stay tuned for developments.

Linda you are misleading your readers..that statement was only carried by the Punch and Nation newspapers which can be taken with a pinch of salt because they are well known for their bias in reporting any news relating to Jonathan..no other newspaper carried or reported that statement. And don't forget that the CEO of Channels newspaper was present during the tour so how can he asking how they got in when John Momoh was alongside with him.

the president doesn't seem to have a grasp of what he is saying. How can it be, you are walking through the place, seeing the deplorable conditions yourself. Fact that he is asking how the Tv station got in the place tells you how misplaced that statement is. You mean these run down institutions should continue to be at a decayed state without any hope of repair. Ok, sorry, you guys should
continue to plant flowers on the road side, deceive foreigners that Nigeria is Giant of Africa. One would
have understood if he had said he is sorry and
embarrassed that another fellow human will go
through such conditions. But with his statement he
has just slapped these cadets twice in the face. Go
on send your soldiers to Mali as the saviour of
Africa(since you want to flex to the world that
Nigeria is the United State of Africa). From gathered
intelligence been reported they dont even the
strategy of how they will be tackle the so called al

They had terrible strategy going into sierra leone,

Great move by the president for the visit. However, his comments simply shows how a typical Nigerian politician thinks. The right thing 2 do would have been to thank Channels and encourage the media to keep doing the good work. Instead he's trying to protect his govt rather than concentrate on making the country a better place. This is just a shame cos almost all Nigerian politicians reason this way. Anyway,I still commend GEJ 4 the visit and hope the college is restored to a habitable environment.We need more of this kind of places exposed. Thanks Channels n Linda 4d good work.

Nigeria or should we say Nigerians are not ready to fix the country. I remember going through the MURTALA airport 3 yrs ago and virgin atlantic plane omhad a problem, well to keep it short the crew and pilot bailed out of the airport before it was announced to the paasengers that we weren't flying. It now turned a hugh task just to get our luggages back. Waiting almost 3-5 hours before finally been attached to our cases. Chaos, no organisation, no contingency plan inplace. The staff were very nasty and bossy. Eventually had enough and brought out
my camcorder to film. In less than a minute had
this custom guy say if I didnt put the camera away
he will deal with himself. My point is, to highlight
problems like this is the beginning of fixing the
issues. Instead they rather want to look the other
way. Right now heathrow airport is snowed under,
people are using camera phones to video people
sleeping at the airport, and also to send to The
Airport management company BAA that this is not
going to fly, no one is threatning them with violence. This president is out of order.

Linda, I beg to disagree with this story culled from the Punch Newspaper. The President did not berate the Police College Commandant nor did he tag the Channels TV story as smear campaign against his government. My question to the Punch reporter is if Mr. President will want to condemn Channels TV, how come Mr. John Momoh the Chairman of Channels TV was among his delegates to the Police College? How come it is only Punch Newspaper that is quoting this? We just need to stick to the ethics of proper journalism.

Why exactly would the CIA care about ONE police college in Nigeria? Not all the colleges o, just one. & not the actual police force o, just the conditions of the trainees. Abeg try give urself small brain biko!

This man is deluded. How is this a smear campaign? Better he had said he cannot be expected to know the details of every government institution and depended on those in charge of their various ministries to handle their portfolios well, but now that he has seen for himself the grossly inhumane state of the facility he will make it his personal mission to ensure the facility is in a condition fit for human habitation and apologize to the present and past trainees who had to train under such conditions. That's all he had to say, now he looks like an idiot and an inconsiderate one too for turning this into a situation about him. Has he lived and suffered in that place to now be acting as though he is the one in hurting? kmt

Why blame the president, he can't be every where at the same time. What of the IG, what of the police department and the welfare of people in their department . Greedy and selfish people .

sometimes my president {Mr Goodluck Jonathan} talks as if he turns upside down before speaking... how can human beings be allowed to leave in this junk called hostel in a country with abundant natural resourses. 2013 is the begining of excellent standard developments in Nigeria {amen}.

you see this shoeless man now? if channels had not exposed the P.C this way am sure nothing would be done neither will Jonathan show any concern. he is very embarrased reasons why he seeks to know how channels got into the college and came out with this documentary.

I guess half of the staff at the Police College were not on seat on the presido's arrival, including their oga kpata kpata! lol

Did the Prisident go to PCI to find out who granted Channels the right to film? I laugh. When you fail in Nigeria you hold your unseen enemies responsible. Channels has now joined the foes of GEJ? He should have left quietly as he came and keep his feeling to himself.

Mr. President,

The first thing you should have done was to terminate everyone within the financial chain of command for the Police College. Everyone that managed the finances for the institution should have been fired on the spot.

Next, you hold a press conference -- with Fashola by your side -- during which you announce that emergency funds have been provided (and how much was provided) to modernize the institution in its entirety. This you task Fashola with because Ikeja is part of his jurisdiction.

Finally, you make a note to the audience that each month, an update will be provided by Channels TV. They should be given every reasonable access to the facilities to inspect the work that is being done.

THAT, MR. PRESIDENT is how you do your job!

Linlin, presido don confirm truly truly say im dey clueless... This na God given opportunity wey e suppose use appear presidential but no, after doing good by paying the visit, e come spoil the whole show by that very unbelievable comment. You sure say no be village things? I dey wonder wetin the man dey think sometimes sef. For im mind, e go think say "kai, see this rotten place wey don dey since, dem no film am but na during my own time dem come do this kind thing to embarrass me. In short ehn, i go deal with the person wey allow this filming".

Anyway, this no be surprise... Together with some of im stupid thoughts like "terrorism is a global thing, maybe it is Nigeria's turn" "It is not the work of mend, I know mend and what they can do" "I don't give a damn" "the south west is too important to be left in the hands of rascals" I believe say im handlers suppose by now dey dey alert to cover the man mouth with their hands anytime the man wan open mouth yakata talk.
