President Bola Tinubu has set up a constitutional review committee to carry out “comprehensive” police reforms.
Members of the committee include Ibrahim Geidam, Minister of Police Affairs; Nuhu Ribadu, National Security Adviser (NSA); Solomon Arase, Chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC); and AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Governor of Kwara and Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF).
The president formed the special committee to look at all the gaps in Nigeria’s 1999 constitution with a view to bring harmony and synergy, closing technology and manpower to the Nigerian police force.
No meaningful reforms have taken place in the Police since its creation in 1861.
The harmonious relationship between Governor AbdulRazaq and security agencies is the state is envied across the country and the result is evident in the rating of Kwara as the most peaceful state.
