Situated at the Ahmadu Bello WA y / Kur Mohammed intersection, Central Business District Abuja, the project, a collaborative effort of the Club and the Nigerian Police Force, displays a two-sided billboard which has the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit – PCRRU, Nigeria Police Force (PCRRU) contact information and that of the club.

In his remarks, Mbanefo explained that it was necessary to have these billboards across the country to create awareness about Rotary.
“Many people are unaware of Rotary and what we do despite the fact that we have so many humanitarian projects we have done and a lot more yet to do. So far, we have sunk about 30 boreholes and laid foundations for about 5 community health centres out of our resources and raised by friends of Rotary. This is one of the signposts we want to commission to show the public that we exist in Abuja.”
He said the aim is to create awareness and have more people join Rotary in humanitarian service because the work is much and the labourers are few.”
He also commended the role the PCRRU is playing regarding police accountability.

The Club’s President, Mrs Salome Garba said that by putting up the billboard, “our presence can be felt and collaborating with the PCRRU will bridge the gap between the police and members of the public while reinforcing the promise that the Police can be relied on 24/7 to assist. She also promised additional support of her club and collaboration with PCRRU.
She said that under the Club’s 3-year strategic plan, it had adopted a community called Gidan Gimba, in Nasarawa State and plans are underway to build a 2-room block of classrooms, a health facility as well as sinking boreholes for the community to have clean water.
The event was attended by the AIG, Ezekiel Zang and Head of PCRRU, ACP Abayomi Shogunle who extended the appreciation of the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris NPM mni to the Rotary Club of Abuja CBD for erecting the billboard at such a strategic location within the Abuja Central Business District.
