State Police Remains The Best Option – Ike Ekweremadu Replies Buhari

Former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s stand that state police will make some governors to abuse their powers and use them for personal gain.

The president claimed that traditional rulers could play the role of local police because they know “who is who” in their communities.

Reacting in an interview with Dream FM, Ekweremadu said state police remains the best way to effectively secure Nigeria.

Ekweremadu stated:

“State police is still the way to go to effectively secure Nigeria.

“I’m mindful of Mr. President’s concerns, which is not different from the concerns of many Nigerians, which is that it could be subject to abuse by state chief executives. Consequently, the constitution amendment Bill for the Creation of State Police, which is currently before the National Assembly, has taken care of that in the appointment, control, equipment, and supervision of state police services.

“I also sponsored the same Bill in the 8th National Assembly as the Deputy President of the Senate at the time. It is the sort of arrangement we have in the National Judicial Council. We have a state judiciary, but the presence of the NJC ensures that they are not abused.”
