He stated this on Tuesday at the passing out parade of 418 officers of the third regular cadet course at the Nigeria police academy, Wudil, Kano state.

Buhari was represented by Maigari Dingyadi, minister of police affairs.

He stated that the Police Act 2020 — the bill was signed into law in September 2020 — will bring about necessary reforms in the force, and also ensure improved security.

“The Act replaces the repealed Nigeria Police Act that had been in existence for over 77 years, and which had become an archaic legal instrument and a fundamental clog in the wheels of modern policing,” he said.

“The new Nigeria Police Act contains fundamental provisions which are positively altering the policing narrative in Nigeria, as it has given legal backing to the principle of community policing and addressed vital issues that have historically been inhibiting seamless police administration.

“With the Nigeria Police Act, 2020, the nation has been given a unique legal instrument that will modernise police operations and position the Nigeria police towards the attainment of its 21st century policing mandate.”

He added that the police public complaints committee, a section of the force which addresses cases of police abuse, has been reorganised for better output.
