Even As Governor, I Have Been A Sufferer Of Police Assault – FayemiMarch 25, 2021
Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has expressed that he has been a sufferer of police assault, despite his place.
Fayemi made this identified on Wednesday throughout a digital occasion hosted by the Nationwide Institute for Legislative and Democratic Research.
The assembly was organised to debate Nigeria’s safety challenges.
Fayemi said that there are points which are past the powers of governors regardless of being the chief govt of their states.
“Irrespective of how highly effective you might be as a governor, there are points that you simply do not need management over as a result of that is an over-centralised state as I discussed earlier,” he stated.
“The governor could direct his police commissioner however the inspector common of police (IGP) could inform the police commissioner not to answer that order.
“I’ve been governor for a while and I’ve been a sufferer of police assault at the same time as governor. So individuals shouldn’t make any exaggeration concerning the powers of governors.”
