Tinubu is told by a joint committee to increase the budget for the Police Service Commission

Posted by

On Monday, the Joint Senate and House Committee on Police Affairs condemned the Police Service Commission’s (PSC) insufficient budget.

The Committee urged the executive branch of government to rethink and raise annual budget allocations in the sake of effective police.

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Sen. Abdulhaid Madori, declared this on behalf of the committee during the Commission’s 2024 budget presentation before the National Assembly in Abuja.

He stated that because security was one of President Bola Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda, the financial allocation to PSC in 2024 was drastically insufficient.

According to him, the 10th National Assembly was equally concerned about security and was ready to assist the Commission in carrying out its mandate to reduce police hardship.

He cited inadequate budget implementation as one of Nigeria’s key difficulties, but he was confident that President Tinubu, with the assistance of the 10th National Assembly led by Senate President Godwill Akpabo, would ensure Nigerians felt the impact of the budget of fresh hope.

The legislator emphasized that Tinubu could not fulfill his mandate unless he invested in essential issues such as security and other infrastructure.

Solomon Arase, Chairman of the Police Service Commission and former Inspector General of Police, committed to offer the requisite leadership at PSC to the delight of Nigerians.

He demanded that the Commission be properly funded so that he may continue the reforms he began upon taking office.
