Nigerian Senate passes police reform bill

 The Nigerian Senate has passed the Police Reform Bill 2019 during today's plenary session. The bill titled, Senate Bill 683 bill was passed after the third reading. Senator Tijjanj Kaura (APC-Zamfara North) had presented the report, and it was seconded by Senator Mao Ohuabunwa (PDP-Abia North). They both asked the Senate to consider the report of the Committee on Police Affairs on the Police Reform Bill, 2019 (SB. 683), following which the Senate moved into the presentation and consideration of report. The Senate, in considering the bill, dissolved into the Committee of the Whole for its clause-by-clause consideration. In his response to the passing of the bill, Senate President Bukola Saraki noted that the bill was passed to “ensure that the Police officers are of better condition and are more productive.”“We want to ensure that our people are protected at all time. I think this is a very great achievement for all of us and I hope we continue to provide better security for our people, protect lives and citizens.“This will go a long way to show that we are a listening Parliament, listening Senate and there is nothing better we can do in honour of those who have lost their lives along the way due to the fact that our laws at that time were not in line,” Saraki added.‏He expressed gratitude to “the Deputy Leader and all those who had contributed for this very important Bill.”Saraki noted that since 1943, nothing has been done in addressing the Police Act as a reform; expressing thanks to the Senate Police Committee. “I want to thank particularly the Police Committee; the Chairman and members, and our colleagues for their contributions and their work in passing this Bill,” Saraki said.The post Nigerian Senate passes police reform bill appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
