The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 12, Audu Adamu Madaki, has donated two cows to his officers and men working in the zonal headquarters in Bauchi state, to appreciate his personnel.
AIG Madaki stated that the gift was aimed at boosting the morale of personnel and enhancing their welfare, adding that, “This season is the best time to share the love through the exchange of goodwill and gifts.”
This was contained in a release made available to newsmen by the Zonal Public Relations Officer (ZPRO), Zone 12, SP Thomas Goni. The statement described Christmas as an important day for Christian faithful around the world, saying that the donation of the cows for personnel could be likened to the presentation of gifts to infant Jesus by the three wise men.
“It (Christmas) is an important day for the Christian community around the world. However, it is celebrated with much enthusiasm by non-Christians too.
“It is symbolic of the presentation of the gift by the three wise men to the infant Jesus,” Goni quoted the AIG as saying.
He assured me that he would not relent in his efforts to meet the basic needs of his personnel.
Meanwhile, the AIG urged the personnel to extend his kind gesture to the underprivileged, such as civilian staff and widows, enjoining officers and communities around to reflect on the significance of the season to commit to these virtues for the benefit of the zone.
“It is important for us to also understand the need for peaceful coexistence with other faithful for societal growth and zonal development.
“This is the time to set religions and ethnicity aside, show love to the needy, beginning with our neighbors,” AIG Madaki said.
Receiving the two cows on behalf of beneficiaries, the Deputy Commissioner in charge of Administration, DCP Mohammed Lawal Yusufu, expressed gratitude to the AIG, saying that the gift was a statement that showed AIG Madaki cared about his subordinates.
“It is a gesture of love that makes an enormous difference to a person,” Yusufu said.
