The appointment of the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to head the Committee on Decentrailsation of the Nigerian Police, provoked strong reactions Friday.

Speaker, Nigerian Youth Parliament, Rt. Hon. Ayo Obe, said appointing Idris was like making him a judge in his own case.


“We wish that the decentralisation of the Nigerian Police is pursued to reality and not another empty campaign gimmick,” Obe said.

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, had while acting as president announced the Federal Government initiative to decentralise the police, with a committee headed by the IG.

He had ordered the immediate overhaul the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), following the persistent complaints and reports on the activities of SARS that border on allegations of human rights violations.

“The youths have noticed over time the failure of the present federal system being operated upon and let me quickly add that this has resulted in the precarious situation we have find ourselves where federating units can no longer sustain themselves, thus, bringing about untold hardship on Nigerians, Obe said.

“We join the loud voices and forces with sincere groups and distinguished Nigerians for the clamour for a restructured Nigeria which will return the nation to true federalism and set it back to the trajectory of development as envisioned by the founding fathers.”
