State police will lead to anarchy, fall of Nigeria – Reps member, Goro


The member representing Fagge federal constituency at the House of Representatives, Comrade Suleiman Aminu Goro has given reasons state governors should not be in charge of security in their respective states.

Goro condemning the endorsement by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo for the creation of state police, said governors will abuse the powers.

He stated that creation of state police was an invitation to anarchy and end to a unified Nigeria.

Goro made this known to journalists on Monday during a monthly youth interactive session in Kano, tagged “Inspiring Leadership Reflection Interactive Series” organized by the Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD).

The lawmaker further blamed the governors for myriad of issues confronting the country, saying their utterances and policies were harmful to the national unity

“My understanding of the Nigerian state is that we need a very unified security system that will always respond to matters of national interest and security not a security created from the benefit and utilization of one chief executive that could use it defending his belief and disposition to issues concerning the Nigerian state.

“So, for me to have a structured Nigerian police by each state is an invitation of anarchy, an invitation to the end of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

‘’There are some governors that are making reckless statements, there are governors that make laws preventing members of the Nigerian state, indigenes of the federal republic of Nigeria from plying particular or specific trade in their state of control.

“If you allow such governors to have excessive power on security, those governors can legislate that some Nigerians are prohibited from visiting or staying in some parts of the country”, Goro said.
