Encomiums poured in torrentially on Wednesday at a dinner held in honour of the retiring Bauchi State Commissioner of Police, Aminu Alhassan.

Dignitaries, including the state governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, among others, extolled the virtues of the police boss.

Speaking at the event held on the premises of the state police command headquarters in Bauchi, Governor Mohammed said he never for once regretted working with CP Alhassan, despite the fact that the police boss arrived in the state towards the tail end of his (Mohammed’s) first tenure.

Represented by his Special Adviser on Police Affairs, DIG Sani Mohammed (retd), the governor declared that security in the state improved tremendously during Alhassan’s tenure.

He said that the state would forever be grateful to the retiring Commissioner of Police for his selfless service, adding that Bauchi State is waiting for him in retirement.

The governor then told Alhassan to be prepared for higher calling in retirement, noting that more opportunities await him in retirement even beyond the shores of Nigeria.

On her part, the state Chief Judge, Justice Rabi Talatu Umar, who was represented by Justice Muktar Abubakar, said that the judiciary in the state enjoyed a good working relationship with the police under CP Alhassan’s leadership.

“Under his (Alhassan) watch, no court order has been disrespected. Our official collaboration has really complemented each other for quick dispensation of justice,” the CJ said.

While wishing him well in his future endeavours, Justice Umar urges the CP to accept offers of service given to him in view of the fact he is still energetic and fit to serve even in retirement.

The Emir of Bauchi, Rilwanu Sulaimanu Adamu, said that the traditional institution in Bauchi State is proud to associate with CP Alhassan, his subordinates and indeed the entire police force in the state for their tireless efforts in stemming the tide of crime in the state.

The royal father, who was represented by the Galadiman Bauchi, Surveyor Sa’idu Jahun, said Alhassan’s impeccable achievements in service would draw higher callings to him in retirement.

Responding, CP Alhassan said he was humbled by the kind words of all the speakers and the presence of so many guests from far and near.
