Nigeria needs decentralized Police, 22 states ready for ranching – Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has restated his call for the establishment of State Police in Nigeria.

The VP spoke on Saturday at an International Conference on Patriotism, Security, Governance and National Development.

The event was organized by the Global Patriot Newspaper in collaboration with the Nigerian Consulate in New York and the Nigerian in Diaspora Organisation (NIDO), New Jersey chapter.

Osinbajo said the task of nation-building was exerting, especially in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious nation.

The Vice President urged citizens to accept that there is a need for greater decentralization of the Police Force.

“I have been a frequent advocate of state policing and I believe this certainly must be the way we must go.”

He said the National Assembly is in a position to consider some of the proposals with them for the purpose of devolving more powers on security to states.

On farmers/herders clashes, Osinbajo assured that the Federal and State governments are committed to the implementation of the National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) as developed by the National Economic Council (NEC).

He described the initiative as a comprehensive strategy that will address the conflict if interested persons establish cattle ranches.

Osinbajo noted that ranching is essentially a business, and no community or state is compelled to give their land.

NLTP is not a land grab in any way. Already 22 States have indicated interest and pilots, with the support of the Netherlands government, are ongoing in 4 states of Adamawa, Nasarawa, Plateau and Gombe.”
