As the clamour for state police grows stronger, the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has faulted 16 governors’ submission of a report on the matter to the National Economic Council.

On Thursday, the National Economic Council confirmed receiving memoranda from 16 governors who expressed their support for establishing state police to address the myriads of security challenges facing the nation. Although the names of the governors were not given, 20 other governors were yet to forward their reports to enable the National Economic Council to act on them.

Governor Makinde said the issue of the state police can best be handled by the National Assembly and not the National Economic Council or the National Security Adviser.
