FG Slashes Nigeria Police Budget Proposal by N93 billion

Federal Government has slashed the budget proposed by the Nigeria Police Force by almost ninety three billion naira, a situation which the security outfit has warned may frustrate its efforts towards effectively tackling the growing insecurity in the country.

The police blamed the reduction largely on the envelope budgeting system of the government and urged the National Assembly to exclude the NPF from it.

Baba made this known to the Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Police Affairs behind closed doors while defending the proposed budget of the NPF in the twenty twenty three Appropriation Bill.
