African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and the United Nations have handed over a new police headquarters and a vehicle to Jubbaland state to help boost security in the region. The new office block will facilitate the smooth operations at the base while the vehicle donation will alleviate some of the transportation challenges Jubbaland State police officers endure on a daily basis.
Jubbaland Second Deputy President, Abdikadir Haji Mohamud Luga Dheere, urged the international community to continue helping Somalia attain its dream. “We are in a country that was in a civil war for thirty years. We, therefore, request for your support so that we realize a Somalia that can stand on its feet and become self-sufficient,” Mr Abdikadir noted.
The office will go a long way in bringing peace, security and stability to the region and is an inspired addition to the police buildings that the Somali Police force has been receiving in attempts to rebuild its capacity.
