BASEPA, Bauchi Police Command Partner on Tree Planting Initiative 

The Bauchi State Government, through the  Bauchi State Environmental Protection Agency, BASEPA, has collaborated with the Bauchi State Police Command on a tree planting initiative to address environmental issues.

This partnership was announced by the Bauchi State Police Commissioner, Auwal Musa Mohammed, in a press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, Ahmed Mohammed Wakil.

The Command has launched a strategic partnership with the state government to tackle ecological challenges by planting 1000 trees across various police formations. This initiative demonstrates the Command’s commitment to environmental stewardship and the important role law enforcement can play in community and ecological well-being.

The press release stated, in part, “This initiative highlights our dedication to environmental responsibility and the proactive role that law enforcement can take in promoting community and ecological welfare.”

“By integrating tree planting into the operational framework of the police force, this initiative seeks to contribute to broader endeavours to combat deforestation and alleviate the impacts of climate change in the state,” Mohammed explained in the statement.

The police boss maintained “Our environment is a collective responsibility. As a police force, we are committed to not only ensuring the safety and security of our citizens but also to preserving and safeguarding our natural surroundings.

“Through the planting of these trees, we seek to directly address ecological issues and serve as a role model for others.”

Speaking at the tree planting event at the Police Officers’ Mess, Bauchi, the state Commissioner for Housing and Environment, Danlami Ahmed Kawule, commended the Commissioner of Police for his leadership and dedication to this cause, highlighting the necessity of planting more trees in the communities to mitigate the impact of climate change.

“To incentivize accountability and pride in the maintenance of these green spaces, the state reward awaits any Divisional Headquarters that effectively tends to and nurtures the trees in their surrounding,” Kawule pointed out.

Our correspondent further quotes from the Command’s statement that “the tree planting campaign will encompass the state headquarters, all Area Commands, the Police Mobile Force (10 PMF) Base, and the Divisional Police Headquarters across the state.”
