Sixteen State Governors Support The Implementation of state police in Nigeria

Sixteen state governors have presented reports to the National Economic Council in favor of the implementation of state police.

They also suggested amendments to the constitution that would enable the establishment of state police forces.

During the 140th NEC meeting at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja on Thursday, Vice President Kashim Shettima presided over the discussions, which included receiving reports among the documentations presented.

NEC is anticipating reports from 20 states, as stated, and remains optimistic that they will receive support from others.

“Secretary to NEC (Mr Nebeolisa Anako) made a presentation on submissions by states on the state policing initiative. Reports have been received by 16 states on the establishment of State police. 20 states have yet to send in report. All states across the country expressed their support for the establishment of state police for the following reasons.

“States made presentations in support of the creation of state police. States recommended changes in the constitution and the current policing structure to enable the operationalisation of the initiative.”
