Governors Support Creation Of State Police

The Nigerian Governors Forum on Monday backed the calls for the creation of state police.

Chairman of the Governors Forum and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, told journalists in Abuja that the governors are in support of the creation of state police.

Mr Yari’s comments come just days after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for the creation of state police.

Professor Osinbajo had advocated the introduction of state police on Thursday at the start of a two-day security summit organised by the Senate in the nation’s capital.

According to the VP, the state policing system is the way to go because having a centralised system – as is currently practiced, cannot effectively secure the nation.

Despite calling for the creation of state police, Professor Osinbajo said there was the need to strengthen the Nigeria Police Force and proposed that the current number of police in the country be tripled.

In expressing support for state police, Governor Yari, however, suggested it should be introduced in phases due to the cost implication.
