Talthe Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abubakar Adamu Mohammed, has stated that tolerance and cultural re-orientation as antidotes to the skirmishes in parts of the country and a path-way to mutual co-existence, adding that culture and peace are like two inseparable Siamese twins.

CP Mohammed, who stated this when he was received in audience in his office, the Coordinator, Enugu State Office of National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO), Mr. Nwajagu Nnaemeka, expressed happiness for the visit, and declared interest in participating in all NICO programmes in the State, particularly the forth-coming Nigerian Indigenous Language Programme (NILP) slated for August-September this year.

Briefing the CP Mohammed earlier, the NICO Enugu State Office Coordinator, Mr. Nwajagu Nnaemeka, had described the negative impact of westernization, particularly from the social media as a cankerworm that has eaten deep into the fabric of the family system, and that it informed why the Institute came out with laudable programmes, such as, Nigerian Indigenous Language Programme and Dress Culture Day to ameliorate the ugly trend.

Mr. Nnaemeka noted that, the family is the first agent of socialization and the bedrock of any society and must be guarded jealously, and solicited the involvement of officers of the State Police Command in NICO Enugu State Office.

In his vote of thanks, the Public Relations Officer, Enugu State Police Command, DSP Ebere Amarizu, expressed joy for the visit noting that, the presence of NICO in Enugu State could not have come at a better time.

NICO staff, who accompanied the State Head on the visit were, Messrs. Augustine Okezie, Kingsley Ngoka, Tony Chukwu, Precious Enwere and Emenike Ifeanyi.
