State Policing, Restructuring: Adeshina Slams Obasanjo

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has accused former President Olusegun Obasanjo of doing nothing about restructuring and the security architecture of the country during his tenure.

Adeshina stated this while reacting to Obasanjo’s statement that creation of state police would be a better option than community policing.

Obasanjo’s statement followed the widespread insecurity across the country.

The former President made the suggestion when the leadership of the National Association of Ex-local government chairmen in Nigeria paid him a courtesy visit in Abeokuta on Wednesday, April 19.

Though Adesina admitted that Obasanjo has a right to hold a different opinion from what he held in the past, he maintained that he (Obasanjo) had the opportunity to restructure the security architecture of the country but did nothing.

The presidential spokesperson said;

 

“Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has a right to hold a different opinion from what he held in the past but I recall that under him, restructuring of the federation was a key issue that Afenifere fought for, and then there was the issue of state police which also resonated loudly under him but he didn’t do anything in eight years. Like I said, he has a right to change his mind now but it doesn’t change the fact that he had the opportunity to do something about it and did not”.
