Buhari did not approve state and LG police-Presidency

President Muhammadu Buhari did not approved the establishment of state and local government police, the presidency has said.
Buhari on Monday received a report on the reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The President requested that the report be studied and a white paper produced within three months.
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, in a statement in Abuja, said it would be premature and pre-emptive to suggest that the president had approved state police.
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 Tony 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.” (NAN)
