Following the raging insecurity in some regional parts of the country and how some governors have been agitating for state police, the able governor of Taraba state, Sir Darius Ishaku has come out in a recent video clip shared by the Channels Television to deliberate on the issue.
The governor who spoke extensively in the 4 minutes video clip stated that the country’s constitution has been short-changed while suggesting that Nigeria should have local police for the local government areas, state police, and national police for the federal level just like it’s in the US constitution. Governor Darius stressed that there is no need for tagging a state governor an executive leader if he cannot carry out his orders with troops under his command as he insisted that the state police is imperative and necessary.
The governor who felt concerned over the state of the nation and how insecurity has been ravaging the country, questioned how the federal government could be able to know about the happenings in all nook and cranny of the state and implant security operatives there, as he strongly believed that it is impossible and wouldn’t work unless there is a presence of state police. Following through his speech, the governor concluded that state police should be enacted and a constitutional amendment would also be required.
Wrapping up the short clip, he also said that the country is already sliding into anarchy while reassuring that Nigeria is a beautiful country but we all must manage it well to enjoy its beauty, Governor Ishaku added.
