He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he can comfortably vow to do everything possible to free police officers from being security or orderlies for Very Important Personality, as the police personnel on such duties should be replaced by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps officers.
Tinubu added that he also intends to boost the public confidence in the Nigeria Police Force and other internal security agencies.
His words, “We shall boost the public confidence in the Nigeria Police Force and other internal security agencies by increasing recruitment and providing high-tech, non-lethal equipment with corresponding manpower development schemes.”
“Police reform will be focused on positioning the institution to better deliver on its primary duties of community policing and maintaining law and order through crime fighting and prevention.”
“Police personnel will be freed from extraneous duties such as VIP security and guard duties. VIP Security and provision of security for government buildings, installations and other critical assets will be transferred to The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps. The NSCDC shall be evaluated and reformed to be better integrated with our internal security apparatus.”
