Gbajabiamila: Nigerians deserve a police force they can trust

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.”
