PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI DECORATES NEW SERVICE CHIEF AT THE STATE HOUSE CHAMBERS
This is how you can tell a president who has no clue about administration! Is it not the duty of the Nigerian Police to combat armed robbery, while the army combats Boko Haram, etc? What will the Nigerian Police be doing, while the army is battling armed robbers.
The fact and sensible thing is that the Nigerian Police should be better equipped to deal with civilian crimes. Equipping them involves providing them with better living quarters, better salaries, multiple uniforms and shoes, better fire power to match or surpass the fire power of armed robbers and marauding Fulani herdsmen who rape and kill every now and then, and of course other better crime fighting equipments –both hardware and software.
If Buhari wants to do away with the Nigerian Police let him step up and tell us. This guy will be a better herdsman, than being a president.
