Balarabe Musa Kicks Against State Police

Elder statesman and former governor of old Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, has stated that the creation of State Police will not solve the security challenges in Nigeria.

Musa was reacting to Senate resolution directing its Constitutional Review Committee to put in place machinery for the amendment of the Constitution to allow for the creation of state Police.

Balarabe told NAN that the creation of state Police would be counter-productive if adopted by the country.

“I believe it will solve nothing. What I believe will solve the problem is for the Federal Government to strengthen the Nigeria police.

“We are having these issues because of the poor training, lack of equipment and all that which have hindered the capability of the police.

“What the Federal Government needs to do is to train and retrain the personnel, provide equipment and increase the number of the personnel,” he said.

He said the government could afford to fund the police if it summoned the will and call for the right investment in security.

The former Kaduna governor, however, said that security was the responsibility of everyone and urged all to be involved in it.
