Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state has claimed that the solution to Nigeria’s security problem is restructuring of the Police force.
The governor stated that the force needs to be decentralized for effective security operations.
He stated this at a colloquium held by the National Conscience Party(NCP) held in honour of the party’s founder, Gani Fawehinmi, in Akure on Thursday.
“How can a unified police structure guarantee security in this nation?
“We must decentralize the police force so that the local and state can have their police,” he said.
Mr Mimiko also used the opportunity to eulogise Fawehinmi saying if the late activist had survived his cancer of the lungs, he would have fought to ensure that government voted more funds into the health sector, particularly towards fighting cancer.
