State Governors All Agreed With the Establishment of State Police


While the Federal government of Nigeria has failed in all principles of justice, state governors are left without an alternative than to raise local security from the grass roots as the only remedy to ensure the security of lives and properties in the state.

In Abuja, Thirty-six states governors on Monday endorsed the creation of state police to address rising insecurity in the country.
Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Abdulaziz Yari stated this during the National Security Summit organized by the Senate in Abuja.
The Governors endorsement came days after the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo backed the creation of state police.

Yari, who is the Zamfara State Governor said the creation of state police would enable the country overcome the security challenges in some parts of the country.
It could be noted that the federal government have been in the habit of terrorising states with federal troops but the creation of state Police could help the governors to build an internal security force under the state command and control.
