President Buhari signs Police Bill 2020 into law






President Muhammadu Buhari has signed the Nigeria Police Bill, 2020, into law.

A statement on Thursday in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina said President Buhari, in a memo, dated September 16, 2020, communicated his assent to the Bill to the National Assembly through the Clerk of the legislature.

The Act repeals the Police Act Cap. P19. Laws of the Federation, 2004, and provides for a more effective and well organised Police Force, driven by the principles of transparency and accountability in its operations and management of its resources.

Among others, the Act establishes an appropriate funding framework for the Police in line with what is obtainable, in other Federal Government key institutions; enhances professionalism in the Force through increased training opportunities; and creates an enduring cooperation and partnership between the Police Force and communities in maintaining peace and combating crimes nationwide.
