#ENDSARS: Gbajabiamila Calls For Police Reforms

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said there is the need to weed out the bad eggs in the Nigeria Police Force to stop the bad name being given to the security outfit.

 

Gbajabiamila, made this known in Abuja on Thursday while declaring open, a public hearing on the Police Service Commission Act (Repeal and Re-Enactment) Bill 2020 and the National Institute for Police Studies (Establishment) Bill 2020.

 

According to the Speaker, while there are many good officers and men of the NPF, the few bad ones are creating problems for the outfit.

 

The PSC Act amendment bill is a product of the recent nationwide #EndSARS protests, in which the House has proposed various reforms in the police system.
