“On security, I must commend the Army, Police, and others who lay their lives daily to protect the people and we are going to restore the glory of the agencies by rebuilding the architecture.

“The creation of a sub-policing and interstate policing system coupled with drone surveillance across the borders is necessary in order to prevent threats to national security. With these reforms, there will be highly skilled police and armed forces with respect for human rights,” Bakare noted.
