Shehu added that implementing state policing will require amending the 1999 Constitution, and Buhari has never rejected constitution amendments.
“You hire a policeman. Give him a gun and for one year, you don’t pay salaries, like you are doing to your teachers, that’s a problem,” he stated.
On restructuring, Shehu stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not against devolution of power, as that is the work of the legislature to do.
He also dismissed speculations that Buhari was interested in extending his tenure, saying that those raising doubts over whether or not elections will hold in 2023 are doing so because they are unelectable.
