Bye Bye To N20 Police Bribe, As The Fearless Bukola Saraki Shakes The Entire Police Force, Today

The Nigerian Senate has passed the Police Reform Bill, 2019.

The Senate passed the Bill on Wednesday, during the plenary.

Titled: “Senate Bill 683”, the Bill was passed after the third reading.

At the plenary on Wednesday, Senator Tijjanj Kaura (APC-Zamfara North), 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 the report.

The Senate in considering the Bill, dissolved into the Committee of the Whole, for its clause-by-clause consideration.

Deputy Majority Leader, Senator Bala N’allah (APC-Kebbi South), arguing in favour of the Bill, said that some United Kingdom delegates had during the orientation programme, commended the Bill, describing it as “the most important Bill of the eighth Senate”.

Senator Gbenga Ashafa (APC-Lagos East), asked if the Police Force had enough for logistics, or if they have running funds to take care of fuel or even stationaries. He suggested that the Senate focuses on the Police Trust Fund, as a form of intervention.

“We have to look at what this Bill stands for, and address issues such as welfare and the environment, in which they work”, Ashafa counselled.

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 times. 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.
