Presidency Denies Report On Buhari’s Approval Of State Police

LAGOS JUNE 4TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The Presidency has described as false, reports that President Muhammadu Buhari approved the establishment of the state and local government police in the country on Monday.
Reports had emerged that President Buhari made the approval on the recommendations of the Presidential Panel on the Reform of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The reports came after Buhari received the panel’s report on the reform of SARS on Monday afternoon.
But the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has refuted reports of the alleged approval of state and LG police by the President.
Shehu said, “President Muhammadu Buhari Monday received a report on the reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
“The President requested that the report be studied and a white paper produced within three months.
“President Buhari’s specific directive is that a three-man panel be set up to produce the white paper.
“The report of the white paper committee will form the basis of the decisions of the government on the many recommendations, including the setting up of state and local government police made by the Ojukwu panel.
“Until a white paper is produced, it will be premature and pre-emptive to suggest that the recommendations contained in the report have been approved by the President in part or whole.”
