Ex- Buhari’s Aide Advises Tinubu To Scrap FRSC, NSCDC, Says Outfits Unnecessaty

Senator Ita Enang, former Special Adviser to Ex-President Muhammadu Buhari has advised President Bola Tinubu to scrap the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

Enang who was a lawmaker in the 7th National Assembly stated this on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme.

The former federal legislator who is rooting for the establishment of state police, said the two organizations were unnecessary addition to the number of security agencies in the country.

He advised that personnel of the two organizations should be sent to their respective states to serve in the state police.

He also advised that state police should incorporate state-owned security outfits such as Amotekun and Ebube-Agu.

While noting that the need for state police was urgent, he urged President Tinubu to give it the urgency it deserves by directing the Attorney General of the Federation to prepare an executive bill and forward it to the National Assembly for prompt treatment.

“We should not wait for the National Assembly to finish the constitutional amendment process; we should not allow it to be part of those matters that will be considered by the Senate or the joint session of the National Assembly.

“Mr President should direct the Attorney General of the Federation to prepare an executive bill and forward it to the National Assembly so that it will be treated as a stand-alone executive bill on state police,” he said.

He said the executive bill should spell out the limitations of the functions of state police to federal police.

Enang said though he opposed the creation of state police years back because he feared that state governors would abuse it, the outfit is the solution to security challenges like banditry and kidnapping in Nigeria.

“The time is now for us to voluntarily have state police. The food crisis we have is an insecurity problem,” he stated.
