President Muhammadu Buhari believes that state police is not
an option for the nation, while mentioning to the tendency for
Governors to abuse their powers as his argument against
state police.
The President said this, as calls for state policing have been
made by several Governors as a way to solve insecurity
across the country.
Nigeria’s current policing system is controlled by the Federal
Government and Buhari maintained that traditional rulers
must play a huge role in bringing peace to communities.
He also advocated for more dialogue in solving the farmer-
herder clashes recorded across the country.
