Why Is Delay In Community Policing Take-off – Opens up Federal GovernmentWhy Is Delay In Community Policing Take-off – Opens up Federal Government

President Muhammadu Buhari has clarified why he has delayed authorizing Nigerian community policing.
Buhari said states’ inability to pay staff had been responsible for the delay in authorizing community policing.

This he revealed through his Senior Media and Publicity Special Assistant, Garba Shehu.

Speaking on Channels Television, Shehu said that each state has a standard national protocol and prescription to comply with as regards community policing.

Shehu also stated that the president was worried about weapons proliferation, and thus the delay.

He said,

“For President Muhammadu Buhari, the concern has always been about the spread and abuse of weapons in the hands of police.

“He said repeatedly that, look, a lot of the states that had clamoured for state police, many of them are unable to cope with salary payment.

“If you hire a community policeman and give him a gun, and keep him for five, six months without salary, what do you expect?

“Whatever name they go by, Amotekun or whatever, they will be streamlined and they will be run in accordance with the structure as defined by the Inspector-General of Police.”

Recall that Buhari has approved the sum of N13.3 billion for the take-off of community policing in Nigeria.

The approval was announced at a meeting of the National Executive Council, NEC, meeting presided over by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo last week.
