Atiku: I’m 100 percent behind n’assembly on state police

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar says he is fully behind the national assembly on its move to amend the constitution for the creation of state police.

On Tuesday, the senate mandated its ad hoc committee on constitutional review to set in a motion a process to amend the constitution for this.

In a statement on Wednesday, Abubakar said lawmakers have demonstrated courage in seizing the initiative to intervene in the country security crisis.

The former vice-president said a decisive action was needed to address the high rate of insecurity.

“A peculiar crisis demands a decisive action, and I am one hundred percent behind the national assembly in its efforts to strengthen the hands of state governments in providing security to their citizens,” the statement read.

“Nigeria must show, by words and action, that the lives of our armed forces and the police and indeed, of any Nigerian matter to us. Even one loss of life is a loss too many.”

He said the initiative by the national assembly should be welcomed by all Nigerians.

According to him, states should be able to develop strategies that could neutralise moves made by criminals.

Abubakar condoled with the families and colleagues of the seven policemen killed in Abuja on Tuesday.

The former vice-president is a known advocate of restructuring.

  1. I agree with the National Assembly and Atiku on the creation of State Police.
    The rate of insecurity in the country has made the call for additional men in our security apparatus very necessary and to also compliment the efforts of the Federal Police.
    Protection of lives and properties of citizens are the primary responsibilities of any democratically elected government and with recent killings in the country, the Apc/Buhari led FG has not done enough.
