Arase, who described life after active service as very relaxing, says he would love to write books.
Arase, who disclosed this shortly after a reception held in his honour on Saturday in Benin, also described life after active service as very relaxing.
“I am an academic. I will write books, I will rest and do humanity work. I want to spend the rest of my life touching the lives of the less privileged people within my community.
"I will sit down to write some books, develop protocol for security sector reforms and if I have an opportunity to teach, I will teach. I like teaching; I like talking,'' he said.
While expressing appreciation for the support received during his time as IG, he pledged his support to the police in order to advance peace and security across the country.
“I am humbled and grateful that my people have found me worthy to be so honoured in this way,” he said.
