Senate asked Police to find 10 candidates from each of Nigeria’s local government areas

Posted by

The 774 local government areas, or LGAs, in Nigeria must guarantee that the Police Service Commission, or PSC, hires at least ten individuals from each of the senators’ calls.

During Thursday’s plenary, Senator Udende Memga made a motion, which led to this outcome.

Memga emphasized that in an effort to solve the security issues facing the country, the Buhari administration has ordered the hiring of 10,000 constables per year.

He reaffirmed President Bola Tinubu’s commitment to carrying out the policy, but he also emphasized how crucial it is to execute the hiring process in a way that takes into account the unique requirements and strengths of each LGA, especially in light of community policing.

Memga stated, “The Federal Character’s tenets are reflected in the use of LGA standards in the hiring process.

It also aims to encourage inclusivity. A sense of balance and belonging in the political system is provided by representation; the Federal Character was encapsulated in Section 14(3) of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

“The parameter would eliminate marginalization of any state, ethnic group, or organization in government or its agency, as well as foster national unity and command national loyalty,” he continued.

“Inequality would result from the recruitment process using state criteria rather than the LGAs that were first used.

“It is crucial that all local government areas are fairly represented in the recruitment process at all times.”
