House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila has urged Police authorities to rid the force of bad eggs among police officers.
The lawmaker said this is the only way to build a police force that all Nigerians would be proud of.
Gbajabiamila made this statement while declaring open a public hearing on a Bill to repeal and re-enact the Police Service Commission (PSC) Bill as well as another to establish the National Institute of Police Studies.
Gbajabiamila said: “Reforming the Nigerian security architecture, with specific emphasis on our policing system and law enforcement, is one of the cardinal commitments of the Ninth House of Representatives. It is a commitment by which our tenure in office will be measured.
“When the time for assessment and judgment comes, we must not be found wanting. The Nigerian people deserve a police force they can trust. They deserve a police force that acts within the limits of the law and respects the rule of law. We will do everything in our power to meet these expectations.”
