The Police Academy, Kano, has been granted the status of a degree awarding university, President Goodluck Jonathan has announced.

The President, who  made the cheery news known on Friday in Asaba, capital of Delta State, said every graduate of the college will henceforth be awarded a formal degree as is done at the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA.

“We want a situation where you will enter the police academy with your O’ level, as you pass through the academy, you also have formal degree with your police training. The day you are retiring from the police, you are also a graduate and you can take up any job that graduates take,”President Jonathan said.

The President explained that his administration had established universities in 12 states that previously had no such institution, thereby ensuring that all the 36 states in the country each had a university to boast about.

In addition, the federal government created a thirteenth university, the Maritime University in Delta State to feed the maritime industry which he said is a sector that creates lots of jobs for the people.
