CHAIRMAN, SOUTH-WEST GOVERNORS FORUM, GOVERNOR ROTIMI AKEREDOLU, LAMENTS PRESENT SECURITY ARCHITECTURE CAN NEITHER GUARANTEE EFFECTIVE POLICING NOR ADDRESS CHALLENGES CONFRONTING THE COUNTRY.

Chairman of the South-West Governors Forum, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, has lamented that the present security architecture can neither guarantee effective policing nor address the challenges confronting the country.
The South-West governors’ position was given vent by their South-South counterparts who also argued that the present security architecture in the country was no longer tenable.
Governor Akeredolu, who spoke during a virtual panel discussion on the #EndSARS protest that occurred last year, said having a single command in Abuja to oversee the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory, will not effectively tackle the issues affecting policing in Nigeria.
Recall that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had on Tuesday said that the Federal Government was already tackling the nation’s security architecture.
