Presidency speaks on approval of State and LG police

After news surfaced that Buhari had approved state and Local government police, the presidency has denied such info claiming that it is premature to spread that.

However, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said President Buhari did not approve the establishment of state and local government police, 

The statement reads: “President Muhammadu Buhari Monday received a report on the reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The President requested that the report be studied and a white paper produced within three months.

President Buhari’s specific directive is that a three-man panel be set up to produce the white paper.

The report of the white paper committee will form the basis of the decisions of the government on the many recommendations, including the setting up of state and local government police made by the Ojukwu panel.

Until a white paper is produced, it will be premature and pre-emptive to suggest that the recommendations contained in the report have been approved by the President in part or whole.”
