Security: Osinbajo Again Calls For State Police






(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday,  has again stressed on the need for the establishment of state police to curtail the nation’s security challenges.

Osinbajo disclosed this in a statement through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande.

Osinbajo spoke at the opening of an international conference on Patriotism, Security, Governance and National Development organised by the Global Patriot Newspaper in collaboration with the Nigerian Consulate in New York and Nigeria in Diaspora Organisation, New Jersey Chapter.

According to Akande, Osinbjo stated that all stakeholders must accept the fact that there is a need to decentralise the police force and the National Assembly should consider devolving more powers to the states for security purposes.



He said: “We must accept that there is a need for greater decentralisation of the police force.

“I have been a frequent advocate of state policing and I believe this certainly must be the way we must go.

“The National Assembly is in a position to consider some of the proposals that have gone to them for the purposes of devolving more powers to the states for security purposes and for addressing the security challenges.”
