Deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu, says he’s confident President Muhammadu Buhari will give approval to State and local government Police in Nigeria.
He made this known on Wednesday via his Facebook post, where he said that the approval of the state police would help solve security challenges in the country.
“I…hope that the eventual Government White Paper on the report will uphold the recommendation for decentralised policing as a fundamental measure in tackling the nation’s security challenges,” Ekweremadu said in a Facebook post.
“It is noteworthy that the Bill addresses the usual public concerns over the possible abuse of subnational police structures by the Governors,” Ekweremadu said.
“I believe it qualifies as part of the major agenda of the 9th National Assembly.”
Buhari received a report on the reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) Monday, June 3 by National Human Rights Commission Committee on SARS.
