Gbajabiamila reechoes commitment to effective policing system law.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has reechoed commitment of the House to enact a law that would ensure effective policing system in the country.

Gbajabiamila explained that police reform had been the burden of the 9th legislative agenda, adding that it was meant to take off early in the year but derailed by the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.

The speaker made it clear that without an effective policing system, the state would lose its legitimacy and authority, stressing that such situation should be avoided.

He said an effective policing system would be impossible when the citizenry do not trust the police, adding that it was time to begin to hold officers accountable for their actions and inaction; as well as ensuring their welfare from recruitment to retirement.
