Ex- Kano Gov, Shekarau Hints At What Tinubu Can Do To End Insecurity

A former Governor of Kano State, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau has provided an insight into what president Bola Tinubu can do to bring an end to the lingering security crisis that has bedeviled the nation for many years.

Shekarau, while appearing on Channels TV Politics Today on Thursday, urged the President to implement some of the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference Report on community policing and restructuring.

“I have gone through that document. It was during (Goodluck) Jonathan’s government. He personally handed it over publicly at Eagle Square to President (Muhammadu) Buhari and nothing was done about it.

“I’ll advise President Tinubu to dust it up. May be set up a small committee to review it and see things that are doable. Most of these things that we are talking about are there.”

The former Minister of Education advocated state police and restructuring that “allows bottom-up structure of government. There should be some participation of the people correctly”.

Shekarau added that Nigeria needs community policing owned by the community, while the government would be the coordinator.
