Lira University Vice Chancellor, Prof. Jasper Ogwal Okeng said, “We are keen and motivated to provide for the welfare of Police staff posted here. Their good health takes priority.” He was addressing a congregation during the handover of the facility at Main Campus on 16th August 2023.

Prof. Ogwal Okeng lauded the Police Management for erecting accommodation facilities for police at the Station. “We now appeal to the Inspector General of Police to approve our request to have a fully-fledged Police station with adequate staffing and provide more accommodation facilities,” he says.

Lira City West Division DPC, SP Wilson Tumwesigye, commended the Lira University management team for providing enough land and sanitary facilities at the station. “Every University must have a fully-fledged Police Station with at least 24 staff. No joke there. Students strikes are becoming rampant today, we need enough police officers to avert riots,” DPC says.
