State Police Will Solve Insecurity In Nigeria, Says Gov. Diri


The Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri during the gala night to wrap up the 2022 Ijaw Diaspora Convention in Newark, New Jersey in the United States of America said there is a need to allow the establishment of functional state-owned police across Nigeria.

He said the operations of state police would end the state of insecurity in the country.

In a statement yesterday by his Director, New Media, Dr. Kola Oredipe, the governor insisted on the restructuring of Nigeria and devolution of powers to the states.

He said the Federal Government should respect the true dictates of a federal system of government that is fashioned after the US democratic system where equity, fairness, and justice remain the order of the day.

“The security challenges are there in Nigeria and that is why some of us are asking for the restructuring of Nigeria. There has to be devolution of powers to the states,” Diri said.

The Governor noted that the current administration in Bayelsa State was investing massively in security to create enabling environment for investments to thrive.

“Through the three senatorial roads, we are connecting many riverine communities by roads. We also want to ensure that all our local government headquarters hitherto not linked by road are connected, he added.

He urged the Ijaws in the diaspora to ensure they work closely with the national executive of the Ijaw National Congress (INC) and add their voices to trending national debates and promotion of the culture of the fourth largest ethnic group in the country.
