Buhari: Disbanding Of SARS First Step To Extensive Police Reforms by murecool(m): 1:37pm On Oct 12
President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in Abuja declared that disbanding of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is the first step to extensive police reforms by his administration.



Speaking at the launch of the Presidential Youth Empowerment Scheme (P-YES), aimed at creating 774,000 jobs across the Local Government Areas (LGAs) in the country, President Buhari also directed that all those responsible for misconduct or wrongful acts be brought to justice.



''I will like to use this opportunity to say a word on the recent genuine concerns and agitations by Nigerians about the excessive use of force and in some cases extra-judicial killings and wrongful conduct of the men of the Nigerian Police Force,’’ President Buhari said during the launch of the P-YES programme, attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmed Lawan, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State and Engineer Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State.



He continued: ''The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms in order to ensure that the primary duty of the police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihood of our people.



''We will also ensure that all those responsible for misconduct or wrongful acts are brought to justice.



''We deeply regret the loss of life of the young man in Oyo State during the recent demonstrations.



''I have directed that the circumstances of his death should be thoroughly investigated.



''Meanwhile, it is important to recognise that the vast majority of men and women of the police force are hardworking and diligent in performing their duties.



''The few bad eggs should not be allowed to tarnish the image and reputation of the force.''



On the empowerment programme, the President while restating his administration’s commitment to youth development and poverty alleviation pledged that the Federal Government policies of social protection and people empowerment would continue on track, despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemic.



The President, who described P-YES as a cornerstone of his administration’s social and economic development strategies, said it was part of the overall policy of ensuring that 100 million Nigerians were lifted out of poverty in ten years.



''The P-YES is also part of the plan that we adopted in 2016 in which we empowered One hundred youths from each of the 774 Local Government Areas with the necessary tools to acquire skills and establish small businesses.



''Given the success of that initiative, we are now committed to creating 774,000 jobs across all the LGAs, through the P-YES programme,'' he said.



President Buhari, who took a tour of P-YES tools and equipment displayed at the forecourt of Presidential Villa, expressed delight that the materials showcased represent the fruits of the initiatives embarked upon by his administration in 2016.



''All the tools, machines and equipment that are exhibited here, are products of the efforts of these empowered youth entrepreneurs.



''I note with particular pleasure that they were all fabricated in Nigeria by Nigerian youths using locally sourced materials. This is a wonderful and uplifting achievement.



''As an entrepreneurship empowerment project, the P-YES programme aims to address the needs of unskilled and less educated youth.



''It targets key areas of activities that are of practical importance and are essential to every aspect of our economy.



''These include areas such as agriculture and food processing, restaurant and catering, tailoring and fashion design, technical skills such as in the Information and Communications Technology sector, artisanship, welding, carpentry and joinery, other small businesses and activities associated with the micro-economic sector of this economy,'' he said.



The President used the occasion to call on State Governments, Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government to factor the P-YES into their programmes to assist the youth realise their potentials in their chosen fields.



He urged local and foreign private sector operators in Nigeria to also contribute their share to the expansion of this programme through channelling their corporate social responsibility efforts towards skills acquisition, creation of start-ups, and other intervention measures.



President Buhari declared that the expansion of the P-YES would now be vigorously pursued, adding that more resources will be committed to the achievement of its goals and objectives towards youth empowerment and entrepreneurship development.



The President commended the Office of the Senior Special Assistant on Youth and Students Affairs, under Hon. Nasiru Saidu Adhama, for driving the P-YES programme in accordance with the mandates prescribed for the office and the programme.



He expressed confidence that the programme being supervised by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation would make significant difference.



In his remarks, Hon Adhama assured the President that as achieved in the pilot phase of the programme the selection of beneficiaries in the full-scale P-YES scheme would be done with the utmost transparency and credibility, adding that equal opportunities will be observed in the delivery of equipment, tools and machines to all States and LGAs.

No redeployment to other police units, they'll go on there to continue their acts of wickedness. Sack them entirely before they corrupt other units of the NG Police Force.

sad Even though I'm a born again Christian, I'm very sad about the insecurity the disbandment of SARS will resort to. Majority of we southern Christians that spearheaded the end SARS campaign seems to be ungrateful of the hard works of the security agents down south. These are guys who are willing to lay down their lives to confront Armed robbers, kidnappers and other violent criminals yet we keep protesting for their ban because we sleep in peace.

Unlike our northern Muslim brothers who have been unfortunate to witness banditry, terrorism and massive kidnapping we are enjoying down south yet we clamour for end SARS because of the actions of few bad officers. Even American police have bad officers but are Americans calling for their ban? I'm so disappointed in the actions of we Christians. May God forgive us for we don't seem to know what we are doing sad
