In a statement released and signed by the Chairman of the Association, Comrade Jude Obiemenyego made available to journalists.
According to him, the choice of CP Wale Abass to the exalted position and complex state like Delta did not come as a surprise.
He added, “Rather, it is a move in the right direction and an express indication of putting a round peg in a round hole, owing to his antecedents and record breaking up-beat in all the Police Commands he served before and his short stint as the Deputy Commissioner of Police,SCID Asaba Delta State.
The group said, “With this appointment, there is no doubt that CP Abass is saddled with the responsibility of repositioning the Delta State Police Command in all its ramifications, giving the seeming fall out between the Police and the populace.
Stating further that having followed his track records as a top echelon of the Nigeria Police Force, it is instructive to inform that expectations on him are high to bring his professional expertise to bear on this nouveau saddle.
The group promised that as an association, it will support CP Abass to succeed, as long as he puts in the necessary policy thrusts that will make the Delta State Police Command better than it is at present.
The statement continued: “As the umbrella body of all practicing Community/Grassroots Newspapers Publishers in the State, we wish the CP the best in his new office and as he steps into the next phase of his career.
