According to Social Democratic Party (SDP) presidential candidate Adewole Adebayo, if Nigeria’s police force was effective, half of the government would be imprisoned.
He made this comment during the second series of presidential town hall meetings, which ARISE TV and the Center for Democracy and Development jointly organized (CDD).
Added Adebayo: “Let’s not run away from forming a government. At the federal level, there’s an assisting constitution I’m going to swear in on May 29. In that constitution, it has all it takes to eliminate crime.
“And the two steps to take to eliminate crime is to eliminate crime within government. That is the hardest thing to do in Nigeria.
“One of the reasons why we don’t have an efficient police system is that if we had an efficient police system, half of those who are in government will be in jail.
“So, it’s not in the interest of government as it’s today, to have an effective police. But they need the police for protection. So, I will make that difference.”
Four presidential candidates will participate in the town hall’s second iteration: Omoyele Sowore of the African Action Congress; Mallam Yabagi Sani of the Action Democratic Party; Peter Umeadi of the All Progressives Grand Alliance; and Adebayo.
Four presidential candidates, chosen based on the performance of their parties in a CDD online survey, were scheduled for the first of a series of town hall meetings.
