UNMIL Conduct and Discipline officer Mr. Fernando Ortiz, Jr. on 12th July 2013 lauded the Nigeria Formed Police Unit contingent as an exemplar of discipline and professionalism. He made this remark during the Refresher Training on Conduct and Discipline Issues including Prevention of SEA and the Core Values, at the NFPU camp, Gbarnga, Bong county, Liberia.
