As the clamour for state police continues to dominate the debate over the upsurge in insecurity, former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has declared that decentralized policing can be achieved in the country in 10 days.
Ekweremadu made the declaration on Thursday during the inauguration of the PDP Committee on Electoral Reforms and Constitution Amendment.
He, however, added that political will on the part of Nigerian leaders is imperative to amend the constitution within a few days if state police are to be realized.
The former deputy speaker who chairs the PDP committee, said, “I am equally sponsoring a Bill for the creation of State Police in the current Senate. Unfortunately, we do not appear ready yet or see the sense of urgency to stem the tide of insecurity or rebuild our economy through the decentralization or devolution of power. With the right political will, the amendments to the Constitution to achieve decentralized police and secure lives and property can be achieved in 10 days.
“I further call on our party faithful, the media, Civil Society, and well-meaning Nigerians, to put narrow political, partisan, ethnic, religious, and sectional interest aside, and seize the opportunity of the ongoing constitution amendment exercise to immediately pull our nation back from the brinks.  So long as we run a dysfunctional centralized policing, for that long will our insecurity-induced pains and losses continue to rise.”
Speaking earlier, the national chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, urged the leadership of the National Assembly to represent their constituencies.
He urged them to “Look beyond political parties lines. Do the right thing so that there will be peace in the country. If the laws are obeyed we will not have frictions.”
Secondus also gave support for a declaration of a state of emergency on insecurity
