President Jonathan Pays Surprise Visit To Police College In Lagos
President Goodluck Jonathan, this afternoon paid a surprise visit to the Police College in Ikeja, Lagos.
According to sources, even his top aides were completely unaware that the president would stop over at the College, which has been the centre of intense media scrutiny over the past days, due to the terrible state of facilities.
Eyewitnesses claim the authorities were also caught unawares, as the college had been rented out to host a private wedding ceremony – an illegal act in itself. When the president could not get a coherent explanation for these actions, he summoned the top brass of the College and went on an inspection tour of the school – including the students’ hostels where there are no beds and toilets.
Dr. Reuben Abati confirmed that President Jonathan was heading to Cote D’Voire for ECOWAS meeting, after the shock visit. “The surprise visit is over. Mr. President walked the length and breadth of the college, inspected every facility. Heading for Cote D’Ivoire now,” he tweeted.
