Representative Yusuf Gadji, a sponsor of the police reform bill and chairman of the House Marine Committee, says the bill will ensure a greater police system in the country.
Gadji made this known when the 8th Plateau State House of Assembly (PSHA) headed by former Speaker of the State House of Assembly Shehu Madaki visited him on Friday in Abuja.
He said the #ENDSARS protests did not motivate him to sponsor the bill on the floor of the house.
The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that Gadji was the representative who sponsored the police reform bill that is currently in the House of Representatives.
“I am happy that the police reform bill came before the EndSARS protests that engulfed all parts of the country.
“I was not prompted by the protest, but my goal is to guarantee a greater police system in the country,” he said.
He congratulated his colleagues on the visit, saying that it was the foundation that was built and the strong relationship that everyone enjoyed while at PSHA that has lasted until now.
This, according to him, prepared him for greater service as vice president of the PSHA, noting that the experience further strengthened him in the performance of his duties as a member of the House of Representatives.
He noted that the solidarity visit made it clear to him that the good old days were not over, saying they were the product of past relationships.
For his part, the former President of Plateau said the 8th PSHA came to register their support for Gadji’s elevation from the House of the State Assembly to the House of Representatives.
“We closely follow the activities of your representation.
“He has given us all hope to believe that he is a worthy 8th PSHA ambassador.
“We are proud of your contributions to the green chamber.
“We believe that you will continue to contribute to the success of the legislation in this country.
“We are aware of their willingness to transform the security team in the country,” he said.
