#POLITICS: Buhari Denies Approving State Policing

Share This

The presidency has dismissed media reports claiming President Muhammadu Buhari approved the establishment of State and Local Government Police.

In a statement on Monday evening, his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said Buhari only received a report on the reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The statement said: “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”, the statement added.
