Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Okuwobi Oluseyi Olabisi, has been appointed as the Public Relations Officer (PRO) to the Nigeria Police Trust Fund (NPTF).
The appointment is with immediate effect.
Chairman, Board of Trustees of the NPTF, IGP Suleiman Abba (Rtd), disclosed this to journalists in Abuja.
As the Public Relations Officer of the Fund, he said, CSP Okuwobi is expected to develop and manage the Public Relations affairs of the Fund, create public awareness about NPTF’s mission, vision, functions, and services; manage her media relations and build sustainable relationships with the public on behalf of the Trust fund.
Until this appointment, the NPTF Spokesperson was the Divisional Police Officer of the Ejigbo Police Division, Lagos.
The English and Peace and Conflict Studies graduate who currently runs a Ph.D. programme in Diaspora and Transnational Studies at the University of Ibadan will resume as the PRO of the Fund with close to two decades of accumulated relevant exposure gained within and outside Nigeria.
Findings indicated that CSP Okuwobi has served with merit in several State Police Commands, including Delta, Benue, Oyo, and Lagos States.
She has also served as the Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police Cooperative and Multipurpose Society Limited, Lagos, distinguishing herself during her tenure with excellent ability and tremendous potentials.
Outside the country, CSP Okuwobi has served as a Public Information Officer (PIO) to the United Nations Police (UNPOL) under the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL). During this time, she successfully reconciled local expertise with outstanding international policing exposure, emerging at the end of her service with an award of commendation from the United Nations.
CSP Okuwobi, according to findings, has an impressive thread of awards from reputable organisations for her exceptional demonstration of competence in police/public relations, community policing, and intelligence and investigative policing.
As part of her duty, the new Spokesperson will be exploring her professionalism to attract robust development projects, donations, and interventions for the Fund and the Nigeria Police Force as underscored by her legacies in other positions.
