Senator Ibrahim Shekarau Advises Tinubu To Implement 2014 Confab Report

A former Governor of Kano State, North West Nigeria, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, on Thursday, advised  President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to implement some of the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference Report on community policing and restructuring.

Daily Post reports that the former Kano state Governor Shekarau, gave the advice while featuring on Channels Television’s programme, “Politics Today”.

“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.”

Shekarau, who is also a 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”.

He stressed that Nigeria needs community policing owned by the community, while the government would be the coordinator.
