Some Senators have 10 Policemen each – Ndume tells IGP to withdraw Orderlies to Politicians

Senate Chief Whip, Ali Ndume, has called on the Inspector General of Police to withdraw orderlies attached to lawmakers in the National Assembly and other politicians in the country.

Ndume made this statement in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.

“I support that they should take away all their police (officers).


“One Senator will be going around with 10 policemen, seven, members of House of Reps, everybody. That is for those who are mobile. Some even give security to their wives, others give security to their children. I am against that,” he said.

The Senator from Borno South Senatorial District said Nigeria, with about 300,000 policemen, does not have enough to police the country, hence, orderlies of Very Important Personalities should be withdrawn to protect the people.

“Let’s have like 2 million police, 500,000 soldiers,” he said.
