While addressing the participants at the event, Obasanjo informed the gathering that he had to return to Ogun State for an event he left midway to attend the police training in Lagos.
Commenting on training of the Nigerian Police, the former president commended the police authorities for the initiative, nothing that there is no substitute for training.
He also urged security operatives to be in tune with practices of their contemporaries in other parts of the globe, adding that all human institutions need constant appraisal, regeneration and training.
