The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded the creation of state police, better equipment for the military, and the creation of a border protection squad.
This according to the political party is in order to urgently bring the security problem in the nation under control.
National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, made the call at a briefing in Abuja, on Monday.
The party chairman expressed disappointment that President Muhammadu Buhari has not deemed it fit to address Nigerians over the deteriorating security situation.
The party recommends the creation of state police, upscaling of the personnel strength of the arm forces, and the creation of a National border protection force different from the existing immigration and customs to check the influx of armed criminal gangs.
Also at the briefing, one of the leaders of the party, Bukola Saraki emphasised that the party will continue to put pressure on President Buhari’s administration through constitutional means to demand that Nigeria is salvaged from the current security crises.
