PDP govenors tell FG to establish state police to fight insecurity

On Thursday, Peoples Democratic Party governors shared their concerns about the country’s security issues. They believe it’s crucial to decentralize the current police system and establish state police across the nation. During their visit to Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang in Jos, they highlighted the need for this change.

Bala Muhammed, Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum and Governor of Bauchi State, spoke with journalists after the visit. He stressed the importance of decentralizing the security apparatus to allow states to tackle their specific security challenges and provide youth training. Muhammed also emphasized aligning with global security practices and distinguishing between criminal activities and communal disputes.

The PDP governors not only pledged their support to Governor Mutfwang in addressing the security situation but also criticized the federal government’s handling of the matter. They contributed N100 million to assist victims affected by ongoing security incidents in Plateau State.

Governor Mutfwang expressed gratitude for the visit and financial support, underscoring the challenges his administration faces due to prevailing insecurity. He highlighted the significance of fostering trust and unity among diverse communities to effectively address the security crisis.
