“I will multiply Nigeria Police workforce, others by 400% if I become President”
Presidential candidate of the New Nigerian People Party (NNPP) Engineer Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso has promised to increase the population of Nigeria’s security personnel by 400 per cent if voted into power in 2023.
Kwankwaso who spoke in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital explained that the current number of security personnel is grossly inadequate.
In his words; “the numbers of the Nigerian police, Military, Department of Security Service (DSS), Nigerian Civil and Security Defense Corps (NSCDC) and all uniform personal can’t man the security of this country”.
“considering the Nigerian population and compared with the number of security, there is no way that they (security) can handle crime and criminal activities in Nigeria”.
“God willing when I became Nigerian president, I will multiply the number of police, military, DSS civil defence etc by 400 per cent”, Kwankwaso emphasises.
The NNPP presidential candidate noted that “our plan here is apart from providing enough security personal, it will also provide job opportunities to our teaming redundant youth and at the same time reduce the criminal activities by those youth”.
Engineer Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso also promised to introduce Community Participation Reorientation Committee (CPRC) “this is a new policy which under it we will make a provision of providing some funds to every political ward to be taking care and maintaining emergency and minus problems of all public facilities in their respective areas”.
“The committee members would be traditional and religious leaders, Wealthy Individuals, CBOs, second popular political party head of the facilities eg school, hospital etc”.
We did this in Kano when I was the governor it work perfectly and up to now is there practising it”.
He further promised to review the JAMB, NECO and WAEC fees, “as parts of our efforts to support and give opportunities to the children of the common man to further their education to tertiary level”.
“We will look for cancelling of the fees and if not possible, we will consider cutting the amount to be affordable to the majority, and the few can not would be paid by the government”.
Kwankwaso said, “Nigeria has enough resources to do that and even more than that. Our target is to run a common man-friendly government”.
