Kano Assembly backs creation of state police

Kano State House of Assembly has thrown its weight behind the creation of state police and other security outfits to address security challenges in the country.

In a statement, the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker, Uba Abdullahi, urged government to step up efforts to amend the 1999 Constitution to enable creation of state police and other security outfits to address security challenges in the country.

The statement was issued after a three-day legislative retreat for members of the Assembly themed ‘Consolidating the role of Kano State House of Assembly in Nigeria’s Strive for True and Durable Democratic Ethos and Development’ organised by LEGIS-37 and the National Assembly.
