It is a good development. But I want to know if the serving member of the Nigeria Police Force are eligible for admission?

I am very glad that our tertiary institution added to their number but the F G should ensure that U N standard of training is to be given to the students in all field of studies and they should concentrate in given qualitative service to the students. I pray the institution will be in an hierachy with O A U, U I and Oxford university e t c . God bless Nigeria.
