LAGOS – A member, House of Representatives, Otunba Michael Ogunnusi, representing Ifako-Ijaiye, Federal Constituency, has decried the prevalence of terrorism and corruption in the country. He said: There is an urgent need to strengthen anti graft and security agencies to tackle the problems.”
Ogunnusi who stated this at the weekend in Lagos during a grand reception in his honour organised by Omole Estate Landlords Association, lamented that innocent people were being slaughtered in the country daily because the right step had not been taken to protect the people.
He posited that one of the ways to really expose those perpetrating the act of terror in different parts of the country is to embrace community and state policing systems, even as he advocated for immediate change of name from Nigeria Police Force to Nigeria Police Service.
Ogunnusi said that establishing effective institutionalized state and community policing, would drastically reduce the problem of unemployment in the country.
According to him, “Most of those youths fronting for Boko Haram, can be employed as community police officers.
“Nobody will be available on the streets again to be wrongfully employed to cause havoc, so we could have solved the problem of unemployment and additionally, we could have solved the problem of insecurity.”
