(September 6th – 10th)
The Policing and Security Innovation Hub Project started on a high note for the Legal Aid Clinic of the University of Ilorin, as Advocates visited the Tanke Bubu community – the selected area of implementation for the project.
Because the project is aimed at being beneficial to members of a particular community, it was both necessary and of utmost importance that the members of the community are kept informed of the project. So, Advocates met with and briefed elders of the community on the project, who pledged their support to the clinic as they work on implementing the project.
The FUOYE Law Clinic Advocate also had a fruitful first week. They met with the Divisional Police Officer of the Oye-Ekiti Divisional Police Command. This meeting was aimed at giving the Command an overview of the project, which the Police is an important part of, and to seek their cooperation in implementation.
The DPO, on behalf of the Command pledged the police commitment and cooperation. He also endorsed the concept of the Common Dialoguing Forum – which forms part of the clinic’s implementation plan.
The Common Dialoguing Forum (CDF) is aimed at creating a harmonious relationship between the Police Force and the student community in Oye through constant communication.
The FUOYE Advocates commenced work on drafting the CDF in their first week.
At the end of the week, both clinics held their first meeting with the Policing and Security Innovation Hub Mentors who commended their efforts, and gave brilliant feedback on how to strengthen their implementation plans.
