Idris Speaks On NASS Constitutional Amendment For State Police.

Minister of Information, Alhaji Muhammad Idiris, says President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is determined to work with the National Assembly in the 2024 Constitutional Review process to achieve the needed amendment to allow the creation of state police.

He said, with the establishment of state police in Nigeria, about 10 million Nigerians will be directly and indirectly employed, with each state presenting an average of 20,000 to 30,000 police personnel recruitment, adding that, local manufacturers and producers of police fabrics and accouterment will multiply.

He also said, the civil society and lawyers at sub-national levels will be more fully engaged, as litigations and prosecutions increases, adding that, the agitation for the restructuring of the underpinning structure of the country has been on the front burner of agitation by various subnational groups, civic society, and public intellectuals.

He enumerated the benefits of the reform as several, adding that it has become clear that the nation is under-policed, with less than 500,000 policemen in a country of more than 200 million citizens.
