RULAAC supports the establishment of state police and urges the federal government to formulate the necessary procedures.

The Rule of Law and Accountability Advocacy Centre (RULAAC) has endorsed the proposal for state police in response to the country’s ongoing security challenges. Emphasizing the historical reliance on governors for police funding, RULAAC asserts the necessity for states to oversee their security. The organization recommends that the federal government should facilitate the operational details of state police, ensuring autonomy. RULAAC expressed its stance in a statement by Executive Director Okechukwu Nwanguma. Notably, President Bola Tinubu and governors recently agreed to establish state police, with ongoing discussions to finalize operational aspects. RULAAC acknowledges concerns about state governors potentially wielding excessive power but underscores the need for decentralized policing to enhance effectiveness and community trust. The organization calls for careful consideration of modalities and emphasizes community policing as a democratic solution to address police challenges in Nigeria.
