FG moves to sanitize Police Force As Buhari Assents To 2020 Bill

President Buhari has moved into the sanitization of the police force. This is as he gave assent to the 2020 police bill.

This Bill which is aimed at sanitizing the police system would also take cognizance of their salaries.

The Act repeals the Police Act Cap. P19. Laws of the Federation, 2004, and provides for a more effective and well organized Police Force, driven by the principles of transparency and accountability in its operations and management of its resources.

Among others, the act also establishes an appropriate funding framework for the Police in line with what is obtainable in other Federal Government key institutions, enhances professionalism in the Force through increased training opportunities, and creates enduring cooperation and partnership between the Police Force and communities in maintaining peace and combating crimes nationwide.

Buhari had in a memo dated September 16, 2020, communicated his assent to the Bill to the National Assembly, through the Clerk.
